Vet appreciates anonymous note


This note was given to my husband, a 91-year-old WWII veteran, at the Burger King in Cedar Springs by a young lady who recently graduated from Cedar Springs High School last year. I thought it might be appropriate to post the letter to all local vets. My husband was deeply touched by her verbal “thank-you” as she pushed this note toward him as she left the restaurant.

Here is the text: 

Dear World War Two Vet,

Hi! I am a stranger, but I am indebted to you. It is because of people like you that I can do the things I do. I do not know or understand what you’ve been through, but I appreciate your commitment to keeping the country safe. You have my utmost respect and gratitude. Thank you for your sacrifice and service. Thank you for being willing to put your life on the line to keep total strangers away from harm. America is founded on men with hearts like yours. You are a true hero.

A thankful stranger.

A few people suggested that I submit the letter to the Post to not only recognize local vets but also to recognize the thoughtful young lady, who like many others these days show their gratitude long over due to vets still living, who deserve to be thanked.
