Camo's To The Front Line
My husband, a logistic specialist in the Navy, and I often met for lunch at Chick-fil-A. Most days it would take about ten minutes to order and we'd spend the rest of our time, enjoying the food and each other's company. It was an exceptionally busy day at Chick-fil-A and when we walked inside and saw a line of over twenty people, my husband told me he didn't have the time to wait and asked if I wanted to eat somewhere close by with a shorter wait. That is when one of the other patrons offered her spot in the front of the line to us. She gave her thanks to my husband for serving this great country and then insisted we trade spots in the line. Once the other customers saw what was happening, a number of them began reaching out, telling the nice patron, that her selfless act meant she too, deserved to be at the front of the line. Before even 5 minutes had passed, the entire line of about 35-45 people insisted we order next. After we ordered and said our thanks, to everyone in the line, we sat down to eat. Every single person that had witnessed the act of kindness, came up to our table and shook my husband's hand and thanked him for his service to this great country. It was such a humbling experience!!
