With so much ridiculousness (and I am sure there is more to come), We thought this would be a good time to pause with a feel-good story from The Fort Hood community.
Elizabeth Laird (AKA “The Fort Hood Hug Lady”), 83 has been hugging American soldiers aboard Fort Hood as they shipped out to Iraq and Afghanistan for almost a decade. Rain or shine, Laird sent each one off with a hug as they left Killeen/Fort Hood Regional Airport. From Fox News:
“This is my way of thanking them for what they do for our country. I wasn’t hugging in 2003. I used to just shake their hands. But one day, a soldier hugged me, and that’s the way it started.”
