Now as we remember our military on Hug a GI Day, or as London prefers, Hold a Soldier Day, and what the day represents, Jack encourages Americans to use this day to remind us of the emotions behind it as we embrace the military and the veterans with either a literal, physical hug, or a virtual hug, sent to them through letters, emails, or online media sources like Facebook, Twitter, and other social media methods. As Jack states, “All of us know someone who is serving, or did, and I ask you to join Adrienne (founder of the day) and me and hug them. I encourage you to give back just a little bit, to hold him or hold her, and say thank you. Let no one serving us go without a hug of gratitude.”
