AIR FORCE ONE COLORS THE WORLD ORANGE

COLOR THE WORLD ORANGE! #CRPSORANGEDAY

On Monday, November 7, Air Force One associates wore orange to help spread awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). This debilitating condition was brought to our attention by one of our technicians from our Northwest Ohio region, whose wife was recently diagnosed.

Not to be deterred, she recently received a proclamation from the governor of the State of Michigan recognizing Monday, November 7th, 2016, as “Color the World Orange Day”. Many cities around the world will be illuminating their buildings and landmarks orange on this day to help raise awareness of this condition, including the Terminal Tower in Cleveland, Niagara Falls and the Con Edison Clock Tower in New York.

Many thanks go out to all of the Air Force One associates who participated today and helped support their fellow coworker by bringing attention to this important cause.
