Over the years the popularity of dog tags has grown exponentially and crossed all demographics. Churches use them as outreach tools, hospitals for encouragement, athletes for courage, and thousands of others for the hope they instill in helping them overcome their personal trials this life always finds a way to bring. It brightens our day when we see police officers, fire fighters and EMS professionals wearing some form of SOS.
First Responders serve and sacrifice to defeat internal threats within the border of the United States. They risk their lives to defend and protect Americans, often people they do not even know. Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friend.” The men and women in blue form a Thin Blue Line that stands between good and evil. Firefighters form a Thin Red Line that protects Americans from fire and medical emergencies. We appreciate and value these brave men and women.
