The Greatest Sandwich Ever!
My name is Ben and I’m with the 2025th Trans Company in Jacksonville, Alabama. We got back a year ago from Iraq and we were activated after the tornadoes to clean up in Birmingham's Pratt city. We were living under the bleachers at legion field for about a week and a half and were eating MRE's and the occasional youth group lunch. One very hot day on patrol our convoy of 3 humvees ran across a man in a Chick-fil-A uniform and a heat bag with sandwiches by the time he came to our truck he was out:( but this man gave us his personal phone number and said he would personally make sure we got some!
It was a very kind gesture but we thought nothing else of it because of the large amount of cleanup personnel on site. Then that evening he found us! He remembered our unit and found our staging area and asked for us by name!! He had brought us each a free Chick-fil-A sandwich! And we all agreed that was the best chicken sandwich EVER! My thanks and those of the 2025th Trans company thank you all for the food and kindness! I wish I knew this man’s name but I do not. It may not seem like much but to these four soldiers it meant a lot! I would like to say thank you again and God bless!
