Aberdeen Proving Ground Fire Department, Brave Enough To Wear Pink

Directorate of Emergency Services firefighter and dispatchers wore pink t-shirts in October to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. DES leaders allow the wear of “morale shirts” as long as they are worn as a group during agreed-upon functions.
“Just about everyone is touched by cancer of one kind or another,” said Mike Slayman, assistant chief of EMS. “So everyone who wants to can buy a shirt and wear it during those times designated as a show of support or solidarity.”
The back of the t-shirts read: “Aberdeen Proving Ground Fire Department, Brave enough to wear pink.”
