On behalf of the Friends of the Brave, we would like to extend our gratitude and say, “THANK YOU!” to all in the Medical field, First Responders, Military and ALL essential workers who are working on the frontlines to fight this invisible enemy! We appreciate your call to duty during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We salute each and every one of you and your families for your continued efforts and sacrifices. Your bravery to lift others up is exactly what our logo represents. (Below is a description and image of our logo.)
Although our new website is under construction, you can still donate to help us help those who make such a huge difference in all of our lives.
The logo is of two arms held together with a grip of each hand on the other’s forearm. The significance is to show a bond of strength that even if one hand were to let go of the grip, the bond would not be severed. The star can be both blue or gold. Blue to signify those who serve and gold to show the support of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. The draping of the red and white ribbon is to show the purity of heart of those who serve and the red to signify their willingness to put their life on the line in service to others. The stripes emanating from the star can be interpreted as a heart embracing the individual, or wings signifying protection.
This forearm grip is used in the Military, and the First Responder community which helps the Friends of the Brave show the crossover support of Military and First Responders. The grip in a horizontal position shows a greeting of friendship, in the diagonal position it signifies the process of lifting someone up, and in the perpendicular position it reflects our belief for all to be ultimately lifted up.
