“This is Ted he is a 96 year old WW2 veteran. He came into my pub today for his lunch. I couldn’t help but notice his medals I just had to go and ask him about his life and say thank you for his service to our country. He became really overwhelmed and cried. He said ‘thank you young man no one cares about what I have to say anymore.’

I told him that I’m sure there are so many people that do. Can we all please like and share this post and show him just how many of do care about our veterans and prove to Ted he’s not forgotten. I will show him this post when he comes back for his dinner next week.”
