Napkin note from appreciative soldier brings West End couple to tears

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — When a West End couple saw a soldier walk into the Hooters on West Broad Street Friday night to pick up his dinner, they felt compelled to pay the soldier’s bill. Along with the payment, they wrote him a note expressing their gratitude for his service.

When the soldier could not figure out who paid for his meal, he wrote his anonymous benefactors a note on a napkin.

Thank you so much! Much appreciated! And thank you for supporting our military! God Bless! You are an example of what is great with America!

“We got chills/tears reading it,” Susanne Kain wrote on Facebook. “I’m not posting this for recognition, just to show others how much it is really appreciated and in hopes that it inspires someone to pay it forward.”
