Veteran unable to pay for his groceries turns around to hear customer say “it’s our turn”

It takes an act of bravery to join our military and make untold sacrifices for our country.

To that end, we should all be thanking our veterans who’ve laid so much on the line for our wellbeing.

Unfortunately, though, there are still many veterans who come back home only to have to “go without”.

Thankfully, there’s something we can do.

This veteran’s story is truly touching.
When a news crew heard about his plight, they knew they could and should help him.

It was a sunny day in Las Vegas, and the Fox 5 Surprise Squad headed to the local Albertsons.

They wanted to do something special for the residents, so they selected random customers and paid for their groceries.

Dave Hall headed the team. He approached several people who were just about to check out.

When he asked if he could pay for their groceries, it made their day every time.

Over and over they kindly stepped in and paid for strangers’ shopping orders.

The employees watched as the crew assisted several random customers, and they clued them in on the regulars who needed the help the most.

One cashier was almost in tears.
She was so happy and thankful to see these acts of kindness brightening each person’s face.

Finally, Dave introduced himself to a lady named Stephanie.

She was a disabled veteran.
She relied on her wheelchair to get around. Stephanie explained that she was buying food for herself and her dogs.

Without much financial assistance, she was really struggling. She admitted to Dave that she was down to her last $50.

She didn’t know what she would do after that.

The news anchor was excited to be able to help.

He paid for the entire cost of the groceries, and Stephanie couldn’t have been more grateful.

Dave noticed the man behind her.

“Is this your husband?” he asked.
Actually, the man was a friend of her husband.

This man, named Larry, was another veteran who had been in the same club as Stephanie’s husband.

The club, Bones For Blankets, focused on donating blankets to homeless veterans.
