Man Praised For What He Did After Being Surrounded By Soldiers At Chick-Fil-A

Jonathan and Stephen Full are two brothers who were having lunch with their children at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Durham, North Carolina one day when two soldiers walked in. Nine more soldiers soon followed them into the restaurant, and before long, Jonathan found himself surrounded by military servicemen and women.

It was then that Jonathan decided to set a good example for his son by doing something that is earning him national praise.

Jonathan had always wanted to buy a meal for a member of the military, and on this day, he got the chance to do so many times over.

“It’s always been on my mind to pay for some military members’ meals when I get the chance,” Jonathan explained. “It just hit me real good in my heart to do it then. And it just happened.”

Jonathan ended up buying meals for all eleven of the soldiers!

“Man is there a bus dropped off somewhere? Did we just hit the motherload here?” he said. “What felt moving through my heart is I didn’t care if 200 more showed. I was still going to buy the meal.”

Stephen took to Facebook to share photos of the encounter and to praise his brother for what he did.

“As he paid for their meals, in remembrance of our late brother Joshua who suffered mentally from severe PTSD, he asked them to reach out to anyone they knew with PTSD and try their best to get them the help they needed,” Stephen wrote. “We thanked them for their service and left. Taught our boys to take care of the people that take care of us.”

The post quickly went viral, with people all over the world applauding Jonathan for honoring the military in this way.

We can all pay it forward by doing something kind for a member of the military or a veteran when an opportunity like this presents itself!
