This is a special day to my heart!
Our son is in the United States Air Force!

When is it:???
Always March 4th 

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. 

In my google search of information about this day,
I found this quote:
"I think the origin of the holiday is because of the
date.  It’s the only date in the calendar
that is an order…
March Forth!
It’s a military thing."
--Sabrina Honda, USAF

Thank you I saw Carena's post at DDR and since I have a son-in-law in Kuwait and we only live 8 miles from a marine base, I've now marked this date down.
I go to the VFW once a week to play bingo and once a month to take a desert for the vets there. I'll be sure to give a hug or two when I see the military boys.
