Hug a Soldier Today

Today is Hug a GI Day.

It sounds like a good idea -- support the troops one troop at a time.

And let's expand the sentiment:
Hug a Veteran
Hug a GI's Spouse
Hug a GI's Child
Hug a GI's Parent
Hug a Cadet

If you aren't close enough to actually hug a GI, hug a GI in spirit. Send good wishes, say a prayer, think good thoughts. A GI somewhere will feel the hug.

It has been brought to my attention that this 'holidate' was created by Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith as she wrote in her blog Koopersmithin' Mar. 4, 2008. She gives a good background and some interesting tidbits. Take a look.
