WATCH: The Sweetest Gesture of Military Gratitude Just Took Place at Hiram, Georgia’s Chick-fil-A
A simple thank you can go a long way.
It's no secret that Chick-fil-A can brighten your day in a few bites. But it's also been home to more than a few random acts of kindess recently. After hurricane Irma, a young Alabama boy picked up the tab for hurricane evacuues at his local Chick-fil-A drivethru. In Florida, its Coral Springs locale offered breakfast on Chick-fil-A for Hurricane Irma responders. Now, our hearts are swooning for the latest heartfelt act of appreciation in a Georgia Chick-fil-A. Of course, military gratitude and spontaneous acts of goodwill happen everywhere, but it's always great to see it at one of our most beloved Southern eateries.
At the Hiram, Georgia outpost this past Tuesday, October 10th, a young boy shake hands with an elderly gentleman sporting an U.S. Army hat, as captured in an endearing photo posted to the location's facebook page.
"What a sweet moment we captured today at Chick-fil-A Hiram. Frankie is proof that even the youngest children can appreciate and respect our U.S. veterans. Meet Mr. Jim Henry, who served in the U.S. Army and was deployed in Germany, Korea, Vietnam and Japan," the caption reads. "We thank you for your service, Mr. Henry. Thank you, Frankie, your thoughtfulness goes a long way and has warmed many hearts. You made Chick-fil-A Hiram a little sweeter today."
Later that Tuesday evening, Jim Henry's daughter Pamela Henry commented on the post with a heartwarming reply: "Thank you Frankie for showing my father such respect and honor. It brought tears to my eyes. Your parents have done a great job raising you. Thank you Hiram Chick-fil-a for posting this."
Young Frankie is a perfect example that small gestures of gratitude and kindness can go a long way.
