A Los Angeles businessman proved there are still people who do kind things in a world that has recently been rocked by violence.
Shlomo Rechnitz made sure that 400 U.S. soldiers didn’t have to eat the standard military travel meal for dinner during their layover in Shannon, Ireland.
Instead, Rechnitz asked the troops’ commander if he could treat the military members to a hot meal, The Daily Wire reported.
After the soldiers enjoyed their meal at any restaurant in the airport, the commander asked Rechnitz to share with them why he wanted to do it.
Rechnitz said he wanted to thank the soldiers for risking their lives to protect him and his family. He also joked that he’d write off the meals on his taxes.
Rechnitz was on his way from Los Angeles to Israel with his family during the layover in Ireland.
