Soldier Buys Dinner At Taco Bell For Two Hungry Kids

Here at Wimp, we've got a lot of love for our men and women in uniform. They bravely do whatever needs to be done to keep us safe back home, do all kinds of charitable work and even manage to have some good times as they do it all. There are few things that warm our hearts more than when we see a video of soldiers reuniting with their families.

Recently, Jason Gibson was at a Taco Bell in Columbus, Alabama when he happened to witness an act of kindness by a soldier in person. He saw two boys, aged 9 and 13, who came in to try to sell some homemade desserts as part of a fundraiser for their local church. A soldier who had stopped in for dinner noticed they were cold and wet and asked if they'd had dinner yet, to which they said no.

That's when the soldier, Army Lt. Col. Robert Ridson, told the boys to follow him up to the register and proceeded to buy them dinner. Jason got out his camera and recorded the whole thing. He posted it to Facebook, where it quickly proceeded to go viral.
