This is simply incredible!
Army Lt. Col. Robert Risdon was recently at Taco Bell to grab a bite to eat. He was already sitting down to enjoy his meal when two young boys walked into the restaurant, but not to order food.
The boys, ages 9 and 13, were trying to raise money for their church, and were there to sell homemade dessert. Risdon happened to notice that the boys looked cold and wet. He asked them if they had eaten dinner yet, to which they replied no.
What happened next was luckily captured on video by another customer, who was so touched by this Soldier’s gesture that he uploaded the video to Facebook and encouraged others to share it.
Now, his story is going viral, whether he likes it or not.

I was in a taco bell tonight when two kids came in trying to sell home made desserts for money. I over heard a soldier ask the kids if they were hungry and told them to follow him to the counter, he would buy them dinner. I had to video it and share. Our troops are always taking care of us. Thank u LTC Robert Risdon please please share this….I heard the little one say I want to be just like u when I grow up and saluted him.”

“I’m kind of embarrassed and humbled by the praise and don’t need it,” Risdon tells The Huffington Post. “I am a believer that we live in the best country in the world with the best people and that acts of kindness happen every day.”
It’s people like this who make the world a better place. This soldier deserves all the praise and recognition he gets, so please SHARE this video with your friends on Facebook!
