A young veteran was taken by surprise when an anonymous couple paid for his group´s dinner at Applebee´s in Washington upon his return from Afghanistan. Army Spec. Scott Stranne was stunned when the waiter told him that a couple very generously donated $300 to his bill, according to CBS. He said his friends were asking him about his deployment in Afghanistan, which is when the couple must have overheard their conversation. Apparently at the end of the meal the waiter approached the group asking to speak with the ´returning soldier from Afghanistan,´ and Stranne immediately thought the waiter was going

Comments:
Heartwarming to say the very least. Let´s hope this custom grows as common as it used to be.

There were loads of visitors to the USS Yorktown on Veterans Day and there will be more on December 7 to Pearl Harbor memorial service. Please see:

Good for this couple!

I have bought some lunches for service members and recently a bottle of wine for a special forces guy about to deploy, but not a group dinner. I wish more people would follow these people’s example.

Anonymous donors are the best....

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.


Best of luck finding your benefactors, and thank you for your service, young man.

We only know what we read in the papers and according to The New York Times it appears that you, Mr. President, will soon be coming up with a plan to solve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs and, which, as I read it, could only have been written by PA “chairman” Mahmoud Abbas. The deal gives him everything and gives Israel nothing except Hamas/ISIS smack in the middle of the country. Please take it from someone who’s been a supporter of yours from day one – this plan is all wrong. It’s as wrong as the Brooklyn Dodgers moving

An MSNBC co-host slammed Hillary Clinton on Friday for lashing out at Donald Trump over sexual misconduct claims while her husband Bill was never held accountable for his own. ´Hillary Clinton needs to stop,´ Mika Brzezinski said of the former Democratic presidential candidate on the ´Morning Joe´ program. ´She needs to stop talking about this topic unless Bill Clinton wants to come forward and apologize for being a sexual harasser, for settling [lawsuits] with women, for what happened with Monica.´ Mrs. Clinton said over the weekend at an Arkansas event honoring Bill that President Trump has ´disgraced the office´ because several women have

Who is LaToya Cantrell? The backstory
of New Orleans´ mayor-elect

New Orleans mayors have typically come from families with political pedigree. They have well established ties to the civic and business community. The great majority have claimed native roots. LaToya Cantrell, on the other hand, is a relative newcomer on the public scene. She is the first outsider elected to the office since Chicago-born Victor Schiro in 1961. Before her election as the District B representative in 2012, Cantrell’s community visibility was limited to Broadmoor, where she led a nonprofit that expedited the neighborhood’s recovery after Hurricane Katrina. Still, the 45-year-old mayor-elect can rightfully claim Crescent City bona fides. She has been

A letter newly released from the FBI´s archives may prove that DB Cooper - the 1971 hijacker last seen leaping out of a plane with a fortune in cash - survived his apparent death. The letter, which was sent 17 days after the hijacking appears to contain information that was not released into the public domain until 13 years later. If that´s the case it might reveal not only that Cooper lived to tell the tale of his extraordinary heist, but that the FBI covered it up to hide their embarrassment at his escape, the leader of a team of

HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe’s ruling party fired Robert Mugabe as its leader on Sunday and gave the 93-year-old less than 24 hours to quit as head of state or face impeachment, an attempt to force a peaceful end to his 37 years in power after a de facto coup. Mugabe, the only leader Zimbabwe has known since independence from Britain in 1980, was replaced by Emmerson Mnangagwa, the deputy he sacked this month, a senior party official told a news conference. In scenes unthinkable just a week ago, the announcement was met by cheers from the 200 ZANU-PF delegates packed into

President Donald Trump hit out early Saturday at ´crooked´ Hillary Clinton, his defeated election opponent. Trump called Clinton ´the worst (and biggest´ loser of all time´ for saying that his election victory has ´lots of questions about its legitimacy.´ ´She just can´t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party,´ Trump tweeted on Saturday. ´Hillary, get on with your life and give another try in three years!´ Trump reacted Saturday to an interview Clinton gave to Mother Jones.

Police have shot a man who sparked a terror alert near Spain’s border with France by shouting ‘Allah is Great’ at a checkpoint. Officers opened fire on the man, believed to be a Frenchman of north African origin, after he began to shout in Arabic when the vehicle he was travelling in was intercepted at a motorway toll near La Jonquera on the Spanish side of the border. He was hit in the leg and rushed to a nearby hospital. He has undergone an operation at the hospital - the Doctor Josep Trueta University Hospital in Girona - and his life is not

NEW YORK — Kirsten Gillibrand is having a moment, whether she meant to or not. Going where no other prominent Democrat had before on Thursday evening by declaring that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, the New York senator and potential 2020 presidential contender yet again found herself the face of a national conversation with the potential to dominate headlines and divide her party. At a time Democrats are desperate to keep the focus on accusations against President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, Gillibrand’s stand shocked even some of her close allies.

Sexual harassment accusations hit home for the White House on Friday as allegations against the president resurfaced in the wake of his finger-pointing at Al Franken. Sixteen women accused Trump of inappropriate behavior during last year´s presidential campaign only to have their stories challenged by the former reality TV star and real estate mogul. Summer Zervos, a former Apprentice contestant, is battling Trump in court. Late Thursday evening, Trump blasted Democratic Minnesota Sen. Al Franken on Twitter for a photo of the ex-comedian appearing to grope a women´s breasts – and inadvertently put the spotlight on his own behavior.

Former IRS executive Lois G.

Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate. “Whenever Mss.

Doug Jones, the Democrat running for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat, says he loves to hunt but the Second Amendment has “limitations.” He believes that every right enumerated in the Bill of Rights is limited, and the Second Amendment is no exception.According to the Alabama Political Reporter, Jones described himself as “a Second Amendment guy,” but stressed that some gun control is necessary. He said, “We’ve got limitations on all constitutional amendments in one form or another.” This position is contrary to the clear language of the amendment, which states that the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be

In the video, which she called the "State of the Union," she said, "I´m admitting that I lost my mind."

While editing ‘Vanity Fair’ in the ’80s and ’90s, Daily Beast founder Tina Brown confided some of her best dish to her now published diary, including this gem about Jackie Kennedy. Thursday, July 6, 1989 Quogue- I love how New York changes so completely in the summer. It’s my favorite time of year here, sitting at my wooden desk before the open window with the cool sea breeze. The August issue arrived by FedEx. The Jackie O cover story, and Michael Milken’s rise and fall by Marie, is a much more commercial combo than July. To generate some summer heat I assigned Ed Klein to do Jackie to mark her sixtieth birthday. I asked him because he was always going on about how she liked him when he edited The New York Times Magazine.

Brooklyn College is kowtowing to cop-hating students by directing officers who need a bathroom break to the broken-down facilities in a building on the far edge of campus. Amid a planned petition drive to ban cops from the taxpayer-funded campus, Donald Wenz, the school’s director of public safety, told the student newspaper The Excelsior that he’s trying to keep New York’s Finest out of sight. While Wenz said all of the school’s restrooms were technically open to cops, the college prefers they stick to those in the isolated West End Building, “rather than walking across either quad to use the

Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison. He was 83. Manson, whose name to this day is synonymous with unspeakable violence and madness, died of natural causes at Kern County hospital, according to a California Department of Corrections statement. TMZ was first to report on the killer´s death. The celebrity-news site reported that Debra Tate, the sister of Sharon, said she received a call

In the longstanding liberal narrative about Bill Clinton and his scandals, the one pushed by Clinton courtiers and ratified in media coverage of his post-presidency, our 42nd president was only guilty of being a horndog, his affairs were nobody’s business but his family’s, and oral sex with Monica Lewinsky was a small thing that should never have put his presidency in peril. That narrative could not survive the current wave of outrage over male sexual misconduct. So now a new one may be forming for the age of Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump. In this story, Kenneth Starr and the
