Comforting Military Families One Furry Friend At A Time. We deploy military Build-A-Bear Teddy Bears to military families.
For as long as we can remember, our youngest son Ben, always wanted to join the Army. It really came as no surprise that his teddy bear was the Sarge bear. On his 18th birthday in August 2010, he joined the Army as an active duty soldier. Ben then headed off for Basic Training at Fort Benning, GA in January 2011 with an MOS of 11-Bravo Infantry Division. He graduated from Fort Benning on April 28-29, 2011. After graduation, he went on to serve two deployments in Afghanistan.
