If anyone needs a hug, it’s a GI. In case you missed it, a GI is a soldier, the GI standing for General Issue, which is what a soldier receives when first entering the service. Some GI’s may never see combat, others may spend most of their career in battle however most soldiers are placed far away from their families and friends and in need of a good hug… and a whole lot of our thanks! They probably will never ask us for it but who deserves it more?
How to celebrate – Hug a GI. Let a GI know you care. Send a virtual hug to a GI far away.
