Sometimes a simple act of kindness is all it takes to make someone’s entire day. This was what happened to a veteran who was humbled by a stranger’s kind gesture.
Bob Bradshaw, 89, of Bellevue, Washington, was a veteran who had served in Vietnam and Korea.
After 30 years of service, he retired from the U.S. Air Force as a Lieutenant Colonel.
Bradshaw takes pride in his service and proudly decorated his car with a license plate that bears the words “Disabled American Veteran” and a bronze star decal.
On Jan. 18, 2017, Bradshaw parked the car at an office near Westroads while he left for a dental appointment.
When he returned, he found a white envelope placed on the windshield of his car. Inside the envelope, there were a card and a $20 bill.
“Thank you so much for your service to our country. I appreciate all you have contributed to make the USA great. Please enjoy a meal on me. I know it isn’t much but I hope it helps you out. A friend,” the message on the card read.
“There’s a lot of good people out there,” Bradshaw told KMTV 3 News Now, before bursting out crying.
Bradshaw was humbled by the stranger’s gesture, and he hopes his comrade in arms will be able to experience the same thing.
“I certainly accept this but it’s for all of the people I served with it isn’t just for me and I did very little to deserve something like this,” Bradshaw said.
Thank you Bradshaw and all veterans for the sacrifices you have made to make the country great.
