National Hug A GI Day

Today is another opportunity to honor our service men and women. If you don't have one handy, you can send out a virtual hug in a variety of ways. Interesting history for the term "GI" - started around the beginning of the 20th century as an abbreviation for German Iron which referred to German artillery shells and then slowly morphed into "government issue" or "general issue" into what it is today.

National Marching Band Day - hats off to the Redcoat Marching Band.

National Pound Cake Day - I like mine with a little (or not so little) bit of ice cream on top.
