Dave Perry/The Explorer Sharon Gottschalk of Oro Valley gladly wrote a message to U.S. troops on a large sheet of paper at Riverfront Park. "I'm all for them," said Gottschalk. "Usually, I wear a red shirt on Fridays" to honor Americans in the military. The town of Oro Valley gathered messages of support and appreciation on the Fourth of July, and plans to send them overseas.
