In a world where traditional news sources pay to regurgitate AP and Reuters news, SOFREP takes pride in delivering original content on a daily basis. That said, occasionally we see a story that we just have to share with the community because it’s important to get the word out. What you are about to read is an example of what makes America great, and as you will read, we could use a few more citizens like Josh’s in the world.

Thanks to Marty Skovlund Jr. for sharing this story with us, and thank you to Josh for making America a better place.

Often times the veteran community will lament about how the rest of America doesn’t understand us, or understand what we have done on their behalf. We see them more concerned with celebrities then they are about which service members gave the last full measure of devotion to their country. There are exceptions to the rule though. Every once in a while we come across a great American who not only recognizes the sacrifices of the warrior class, but also will go out of their way to thank us – often times with more than just words.
