5 Young Men Make Elderly Veteran Cry By Repeatedly Disturbing Him During His Meal

5 men make veteran cry

When Lou Zezoff, a 74-year-old Vietnam veteran, stopped at a Cracker Barrel with Annette, his wife, he wasn’t expecting to end the meal in tears.

Lou makes a habit of wearing his cap, with “US Navy Vietnam Veteran” printed on it, whenever he goes out.

It was this cap that caught the eyes of five young men sitting near to him as they waited for their food in the Granite City, Illinois establishment.

As Lou and his wife were eating, one of the men approached their table. Lou automatically stood up, noting that he and his friends looked like servicemen due to their haircuts.

He wasn’t sure what was going to happen, but then the young man extended his hand for a handshake and profusely thanked Lou for his service to the country.

It was a gesture that definitely surprised Lou, who hadn’t expected something like this to happen in a random restaurant.

But that wasn’t all – the other four men came over to continue thanking him.

They were all Marines and wanted to make that night one that Lou would never forget.

The young men eventually went back to their seats, and Lou and Annette finished their food.

They called for the check, and that’s when the waiter told them that the bill had already been paid for by the young Marines.

On the receipt were the messages “Semper Fi” and “Oorah”.

Shocked, Lou went back over to their table and told them that he knew they likely didn’t make a lot of money due to their jobs.

He said their thanks was more than enough and they didn’t have to pay for his food. But the Marines insisted and wouldn’t take no for an answer.

They truly wanted him to know how much they valued him.

After a while, the Marine men planned to leave. But before they did, the young men went back up to Lou and his wife.

They all shook his hand and gave him a hug each, one at a time.

Lou couldn’t help feeling tears well up in his eyes at their simple but truly thoughtful gesture that showed how much they appreciated him and respected his sacrifices.

All around him, the diner had fallen silent, and they were all staring and watching the touching and moving events unfold.

Then, lastly, one of the Marine’s gave Lou and extremely sharp and formal salute, and all five men turned and left the establishment.

Breathless, Lou turned to his wife, who told him he should probably sit down and collect himself after such an amazing, heartwarming occurrence – one that she, too, was still reeling from.

It wasn’t long from then when the five Marines were located by a news station.

They were private first class Marines and, when asked why they had done this for Lou, they replied that it was just the right thing.

He fought for them and for their country, and it was now their turn to return the sacrifice.

Servicemen and servicewomen truly deserve compassion, respect, and gratitude for all that they have done for their nation!

Hey Hey Hey Sexy Lady! (post by Frank Somerville)

“Sexy lady, hey hey hey sexy lady!”

Does this happen to women as much as I think it does?

Julia Price wrote about what a what happened to her when she was out jogging the other day.
A guy wouldn’t leave her alone.

But the cool part of the story is how a little boy saw what happened and tried to protect her.

Here’s what Julia wrote on her Facebook page:

I was on my usual running path when I heard an older man yelling loudly enough for me to hear through my headphones.
“Sexy lady, hey hey hey sexy lady!”

He kept screaming it and I decided to just ignore him and keep running.

This ignoring seemed to piss him off so he lashed out and said “eff you, dumb B****!”

Now let’s keep in mind he was well-dressed and appeared to be on his lunch break from an office job.

That was my trigger point.
The B word.

I ripped off my headphones prepared to stand up for myself when this little boy who was walking alongside his mother and little sister in a stroller looked at the guy and said:
“Hey.
That’s not nice to say to her.
You shouldn’t do that because she is a nice girl and I don’t let anyone say mean things to people.
She’s a girl like my sister and I will protect her.”

The man was immediately embarrassed and started gathering his lunch to leave.

I asked the mother if I could hug the little boy (his name is James) and I told him how grateful I was for him.

He just shrugged and said:
“Well I just wanted to make sure your heart was okay.”

According to his mother, this is a typical day in the life of James.

Thank you so much to the mothers and fathers who are raising the next generation to be brave and courageous, and to be little earth angels for all.

I am so touched.

Julia Price

James sounds like an outstanding young man.
He also reminds me of one of my daughter’s friends.
His name is Bryce.
I took Bryce and my daughter (they were both 10 at the time) to the Alameda County Fair over the summer.

I’ll never forget what happened.
They were on a roller coaster.
My daughter was scared.

And Bryce said:
“Don’t worry Callie. I’ll protect you.”

It was one of the cutest moments I’ve ever seen.

Bryce and James are the kind of guys I want my daughters to be around.

Not someone like that pathetic guy who was yelling at Julia.
Guys like that make me sick.

All of which brings me back to the question I asked at the top.
Do this really happen as much as I think it does?
And has it happened to you?

#Respect (post from Frank Somerville)

‪#‎RESPECT‬

These are the three Americans who stopped what probably would have been a massacre on board a train in France.

I can’t even begin to say how impressed I am by what they did.
They didn’t stop and think about what was happening.
They just reacted.

When they saw the gunman and heard him trying to cock the gun they said:
“Let’s go, go!”

They easily could have been killed.
Instead they captured the gunman.
And potentially saved everyone on board that train.

Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler.
They make me proud to be an American.

On Fixing, Worry and Respect (post by Kirk Weisler)

fix-self-kirk-weisler.jpg

 

The Big idea – Worry is a wast of time!

 

We can often do more for other men by trying to correct our own faults than by trying to correct theirs. — Francois Fenelon (1651-1715) French Roman Catholic Theologian

 

Want to do more for the team?  Then stop trying to fix them…. and start strengthening and improving yourself.  Your example will most often be a stronger and more inspiring invitation for them to change and grow than your feedback ever would be.

Treating yourself with respect is a very big idea.  Respect your body enough to take care of it with proper nutrition and rest.  Respect your time enough to say NO to  the many little things so you can say YES to the more important ones.  Respect your relationships enough to nurture them.  Respect your own need to grow spiritually, emotionally and intellectually that you make growth a regular part of your life (aka a habit).

 

We don’t need to demand respect nearly as much as we need to give it to others and create it for ourselves.

 

Have an amazing day – meaning, Create One for Yourself and Others.
