Veteran unable to pay for his groceries turns around to hear customer say “It’s our turn”

As per reports, Larry, a Vietnam veteran who could barely afford basic amenities, was down on his luck and left unsure where to turn.

As fate would have it, however, he was about to cross paths with a Fox 5 Surprise Squad, in a grocery store in Las Vegas to pay for people’s groceries.

Though Larry was struggling financially, he had still taken his friend Stephanie – a disabled fellow veteran – to the store. Stephanie told Fox 5’s reporter that she was buying food for herself and her dogs, though conceded that she was down to her last $50 and didn’t know what she would do after that.

Dave Hall, the reporter heading up the Surprise Squad, as happy to tell her that he and his team had her groceries covered and Stephanie was thrilled to receive the generous offer.

Dave then noticed Larry, standing quietly behind Stephanie. It turned out Larry, a friend of Stephanie’s husband, had set up the Bones for Blankets club many years previous. The club’s aim? To donate blankets to homeless veterans left on the streets after their service to their country.

Heartbreakingly, Larry established the club after three fellow veterans froze to death. He wanted to make sure no more veterans suffered the same fate.
