Touching Tribute to Fallen Soldier is Taking the Internet by Storm (IMAGES)
This story quickly became viral after a server at a Tacoma, Washington Buffalo Wild Wings posted about an experience he had during his shift at work. Brian Avey took to Facebook to share the touching experience that he will surely never forget after serving a female veteran that came into his restaurant for lunch.
According to Avey, the military woman came into Buffalo Wild Wings and tried to order a Blue Moon and a Corona at the same time. Unfortunately, this is something that you cannot do in Washington.
As Avey explained that state law prohibits establishments from allowing patrons to purchase more than one beer at a time, the female veteran stated the Corona was not for her… She explained to Avey that she was ordering the Corona for her brother that was killed while serving in Iraq.
Avey wrote on a now-viral Facebook post that the beer simply sat next to her at an empty place setting during the entirety of her lunch.
Buffalo Wild Wings picked up the tab for her brothers beer, but that wasnt the end of it.
After she left, I didnt have the heart to dump the beer out and throw it away, so I put it on top of the cooler next the American Flag, Avey wrote. When I showed my boss his response was Amazing… He said Thats Fine, just do me a favor, put a fresh Lime in it Every Morning.
According to KIRO-TV, the store has been receiving calls of gratitude from all over the world.
Thank you. An act of kindness goes a long way. It means a lot to me. Have a great rest of your day, the woman, a grateful soldier wrote on the receipt before leaving the restaurant.
