WW2 Veteran Says Stranger Who Paid for His Groceries Restored His Faith in Kindness



One of the reasons all the rhetoric about illegal immigrants and millennials with crippling student debt can be particularly frustrating is that our nation is full of forgotten veterans who have loyally put their lives on the line for our nation and often fail to get the resources promised them.

The issues surrounding the way the government provides care for veterans is complex, but there is one simple solution we can all apply to this lack of regard for our nation’s finest.

We need to do our best to reignite a culture of respect for our veterans, especially our dwindling population of WW2 veterans who served in the most pivotal war in the history of the globe and have given more than most of us can imagine.

One ww2 veteran recently shared a simple yet powerful act of kindness he experienced from a stranger, who quickly disappeared afterwards.

After standing in line and chatting with a man in ALDI, Marilyn and veteran Don Gillen of Belleville, Illinois were stunned to find that he had paid for their groceries after thanking him for his service.

“I was wearing a baseball-type cap that identified me as a veteran of WWII,” Gillen says. “Later at checkout, when I went to pay the bill ($95+) the cashier informed me that this same gentleman was buying our groceries.”

This unexpected action caught me by surprise and I was so emotionally overcome that all I could do was say “thank you.” Marilyn was much more emotionally controlled and thanked him many times. He smiled and said, “Merry Christmas” and then disappeared. I failed to get his name but I hope he knows that were are so very grateful for his generosity and his restoration of the “good Samaritan” attitude in America.

Our faith in humanity and a loving God has never been more firmly entrenched than by this wonderfully kind stranger’s action. He has to know that he will be in our prayers always.

What a beautiful act, highlighted only by Gillen’s immense gratitude and the diety to which he attributes this stranger’s kindness.
