Today at a garage sale I spied a large garden étagère that I wanted to buy. I didn't have any way to get it home or even if I could I knew I couldn't get it up 3 flights of stairs. A very kind young man offered to put it in his truck and bring it home for me. He did and in talking to him, he told me he had been in the Army for 15 years and had been in Iraq and Afghanistan several times. I thanked him and offered him something for gas, but he refused. All I could do was give him an hug and and my sincere thanks.
The army makes a man out of a boy.
