National Hug a G.I. Day - 2022-03-04
What is National Hug a G.I. Day?
Today, G.I. is a term that refers to soldiers serving in the armed forces of the United States. However, the term's origin is a little less military and a lot more American. In the early 1900s, galvanized iron was noted as G.I. in supply records because it was used to make German artillery shells. Soon after, during World War I, G.I. came to represent all soldiers in the U.S. army. Show your support for veterans by giving them a hug. This is not only a great way to show your appreciation for them, but it’s also a great gesture of support. Both past and present veterans should be appreciated with hugs and handshakes.
