Hug-a-Hero helping military children cope with deployment

CAMP PENDLETON (KGTV) - Camp Pendleton marines preparing to deploy are leaving behind a piece of themselves for their children.

Thanks to the American Red Cross Hug-a-Hero program the kids will have a doll of their parents to provide comfort during the long months. The dolls have a special message and a pocket for an audio recording. 

The Red Cross says the program is possible thanks to community donations. They've already provided 1,000 dolls to children this year.
