Hug a GI Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always March 4
Today is a day that we all can embrace. It's "Hug a GI Day". Give a great big hug to any and all GIs you see today. The men and women in our armed forces deserve our thanks and appreciation.
GI's perform an invaluable service to our country. They risk their lives for our freedom, and to keep us safe. A simple hug is a small thanks for this vital service to our country.
May we suggest? While the intention of this day is directed at GI's, there is nothing wrong with giving a hug and a thank you to members of other branches of the military on this day.
