LETTER: Thanks for service

On Friday, March 5, on their way to the airport for his return to Iraq, our son-in-law and daughter stopped at a local restaurant for breakfast. As they prepared to leave, they were told a gentleman had already paid their bill. When they went to thank him, he replied, "No, thank you. Be safe." Sir, if you read this, words cannot express our gratitude.

On Friday, March 5, on their way to the airport for his return to Iraq, our son-in-law and daughter stopped at a local restaurant for breakfast.

As they prepared to leave, they were told a gentleman had already paid their bill. When they went to thank him, he replied, "No, thank you. Be safe."

Sir, if you read this, words cannot express our gratitude.
