We all deeply appreciate and admire the brave men and women who serve in our military. Their unwavering dedication ensures that we can enjoy the freedom we hold dear. While we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, it’s important to remember that many veterans continue to face hardships. Today, we want to share a heartwarming story that proves how acts of kindness can make a profound difference in their lives.
Meet Larry Robeson, a Vietnam veteran who, like so many others, has experienced financial difficulties. When he returned from the war, he found himself at a loss on how to move forward. However, fate stepped in when he crossed paths with the Fox 5 Surprise Squad in a grocery store in Las Vegas. Larry’s selfless act of helping his friend Stephanie, who is also struggling, caught the attention of the Surprise Squad reporter, Dave Hall.
As Hall talked to Stephanie, he discovered that Larry had founded the “Bones for Blankets” club many years ago. Its mission is to provide blankets to homeless veterans who find themselves abandoned on the streets after their service to the country. Larry started this club after three veterans tragically froze to death due to freezing weather conditions.
Moved and inspired by Larry’s dedication, Hall made sure that Larry would not leave the store without his own groceries being taken care of. Larry had only intended to purchase a dish soap and a candy, but Hall insisted on providing him with everything he needed, including an abundance of food. In total, the bill came up to $278.
With tears in his eyes, Larry expressed his overwhelming gratitude. Throughout his life, he had been taking care of himself since a young age, and this act of kindness touched him deeply. Hall reassured Larry, saying, “You served us. It’s our turn to serve you now.”
This heartwarming encounter reminds us that there is goodness in the world and that we all have the power to make a difference. To watch the video of this extraordinary meeting, click below:
