What is a yellow ribbon ceremony in the military?

Saturday, September 18, 2010

This might be a stupid question but my husband is supposed to go to a yellow ribbon ceremony and they want to know how many people are going but wont say what it is. He is being told he is leaving in April to go to Afghanistan but that is all we know. Can anyone please answer my question?

    I have no idea. I do remember though that when they had the war back in the 90's that there were yellow ribbons everywhere, people wearing them on their clothes, tying them around trees and so on. It was to remember all the soldiers and wishing they come home soon and safe. I am guessing it would be something like that. Did you google it? That might give you some insight.

    My hubby said he believes it is kinda like to remember the ones who are going away type thing.... I dont know and I am sure that isnt the answer you were looking for.
