Wear bright red lipstick

I learned this from the DAR sisters: During the World War II days, it was learned that Adolph Hitler hated the bright red lipstick on women that was the style at that time. To aggravate the Germans, the United States military encouraged the WACs and WAVES to wear a bright red lipstick; in fact, they even manufactured a special red color lipstick for the effort!

If you would like to remember and honor the efforts of our military women, wear your bright red lipstick, girls, on Veterans Day as a statement against tyranny, even in these times!
