It's Hug A GI Day! 

John Moore

Today is a day we can all embrace. Give a big hug to any and all GI's you may come in contact with. Let's face it, the men and women serving our nation deserve our thanks and appreciation.

We ask them to risk their lives to protect our freedom, so a simple hug is a small thanks for the vital service they render to this great nation.
