Product Image Gallery:
Our yellow ribbon magnet is perfect for the back of a Marine Corps car. It measures 8 inches tall and features the Marine Corps seal and letters "USMC" in red.

Most Americans are aware of what "the yellow ribbon" stands for, but few are aware of its origins or the debate surrounding its use. The origins of the popular ribbon are important to understand because it gives insight into the proper use of the ribbon. Understanding the history behind the ribbon also sheds enlightenment on patriotism and why it is so important not only to Americans, but to any country.

According to "Usable Pasts," the yellow ribbon was first used by Penne Laingen, whose husband was an editor of a newsletter for hostage families (311). The idea to create a yellow ribbon as a symbol of faithfulness and patrioticness stems from a song - "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree" - which holds the message of faithfulness (311). Laingen heard the song and was able to apply its meaning (which related to a woman's faithfulness to her spouse) not only to couples, but as a message of faithfulness from all people to soldiers. The ribbon is now used to symbolize awareness as well as faithfulness, and many military wives and families hang yellow ribbons from car windows, front doors, and rearview mirrors as a symbol of their dedication to a loved one who has been deployed.

Item Reviews
Highly Recommend
I've been buying these for years (2009) when my son and then when my daughter joined. I've given them to family and friends as gifts when their son joined. They are very sturdy and agree they hold up in car washes. Withstand the California sun too. Waiting for them to replenish so I can buy more!

Bought 4of these and give them out to my other Marine buddies in my Marine Corps League to put on the back of there vehicles. They also look good around the rear door hatch of my 2002 chevy blazer. Also they won't come off when you go to the car wash and very good strength for a magnet. Good price
