This is simply incredible. Army Lt. Col. Robert Risdon recently went to Taco Bell to grab some dinner. He was already sitting down to eat when two young boys walked into the restaurant, but not to order.
The boys — one 9 and the other 13 — were there to sell homemade desserts in an effort to raise money for their local church. But Army Lt. Col. Risdon noticed the boys looked cold and wet.
He asked them if they had had anything to eat for dinner yet.
What happened next was captured on camera by another customer, Jason, who was so affected that he uploaded the video to Facebook and begged others to share it.
Robert recently went to grab dinner at Taco Bell. As he was eating, two boys — ages 9 and 13 — entered the restaurant selling homemade desserts.
They were trying to raise money for their local church.
As he was eating his meal, Robert noticed the boys were cold and wet. He asked them if they’d eaten dinner yet.
What happened next is going viral, and it was all captured on camera by another customer named Jason.
To accompany the video he posted on Facebook, Jason wrote: “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.”
