Presents: How To Dress Up Like Captain America For Halloween

Want to know how to dress up like Captain America for Halloween?  Okay, we’ve got you covered.  But before we tell you,  we want to think about this first:

Anyone can grow up with patriotism and love of country in his or her heart, enlist in the military, volunteer for Operation Rebirth, and emerge as the super soldier we know as Captain America.  And that’s what has always been the most beautiful part about the Captain America character – we all have the ability to become him.

After all, anyone can wear the red, white, and blue uniform and sock Nazis in the face, throw a metal shield at choppers, tanks, and people.

Steve Rogers was born a man and experiences the same things the rest of us experience. He has a passion for justice and truth, and isn’t afraid to take these things where they are absent. 

Politicians, police officers, teachers, soldiers, doctors all share this passion to help end suffering, and bring light to the world amidst all of its darkness brought forth by greed, corruption, and desire for power. 

Captain America is a policy maker, negotiator, law enforcer, teacher, physician, and above all, a Winter soldier. In more ways than one,  he is the embodiment of America.
