While the history of the Yellow Ribbon as a sign of military support begins with the poem "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon," it began gaining popularity in the United states in 1979 with the Iran Hostage Crisis. It's popularity returned during the Gulf War along with the phrase "Support Our Troops," and has continued gaining popularity since 2003, when Magnet America introduced the "Support Our Troops" Ribbon Magnet in honor of those serving in Iraq. This variation on the classic Yellow Ribbon is specifically to show support for members of the 101st Airborne, which was created in 1918. It is known for helping with Operation Overlord, Operation Market Garden, and the Battle of the Bulge. Use this 2-in-1 Ribbon Magnet not only to show your support for our troops, but also to show support and pride for the 101st Airborne.
