My son 'turns blue' and graduates from Infantry training at Ft Benning on December 11, then reports to his unit with the 101st at Ft Campbell, and hopefully comes home on leave for the holidays. His girlfriend will be joining us for his leave, and this Army Bear makes the coolest Christmas gift for her. I order name tapes on another site, which I'll affix before wrapping, and she will have a little soldier bear to hug when he is away in Kentucky or on deployment. This bear is so solidly built than you could whack it with a stick, pinata style, for a week without hurting it much. Thank you MLC for the perfect XChristmas gift for my soldier son's girlfriend!
