A World War II veteran was celebrating his 92nd birthday at an Outback Steakhouse restaurant with his son when something amazing happened.
Bob Nieman, the veteran’s son, says that he was waiting for the check with his father when they were told their entire $58.59 bill had been paid by the Florida restaurant. The staff also gave the veteran a note which brought “tears” to his eyes.
“Thank you for your service!!” the note read, according to The Blaze. It was signed, “Very grateful Americans.”
“I did 27 years on the Police Dept. and people never cease to amaze me in bad & good ways. My Dad is my hero & this was I think more of a happy moment for me than him, seeing someone appreciate him in this way actually brought a [sic] tears to my eyes,” Nieman later said.
Sadly, it’s become a rare sight in this country to see veterans being honored the way they deserve to be. We applaud this Outback Steakhouse restaurant for giving this veteran the appreciation that he deserves!
