Watch Grateful Man Buy 400 US Troops a Meal

Subscribe to TheFW on

This guy sure knows why he’s thankful.

Shlomo Rechnitz, a business from Los Angeles, is the star of this video which has gone viral.

Rechnitz, who was on a layover headed to Israel, decided to buy food for 400 U.S. troops after spotting them chowing down on standard military fare at an airport in Ireland while they were on their way back stateside. He got permission from their commanding officer, first, and then took some time to thank the men for all they do.

It’s a pretty cool gesture, to say the least.

And, oh yeah, in case you’re wondering, he spent about $50 per meal, which means his check came out to roughly $20,000. It just goes to show that he put his money where his rather eloquent mouth is.
