GOOD NEWS Disabled Vet Gets Brand-New Lawn Mower From Anonymous Good Samaritan
A disabled combat veteran was completely shocked when a brand-new lawn mower mysteriously showed up at his home.
Spc. Christopher Garrett was shot and wounded in Afghanistan while serving as a combat engineer with the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division.
Garrett received a medical retirement and returned home to Joseph, Oregon, classified as 100-percent disabled.
Despite his disability, Garrett mows the lawn once or twice a week, often struggling with the push mower and the pain it causes him.
But he won't need to use the push mower anymore after an expensive riding mower and touching note anonymously appeared at his home.
Garrett's wife, Brittany, posted photos of the mower and the note to Facebook, revealing that the unexpected gift made her husband tear up.
The note said:
I hope this saves time for the things that matter most in your life. Thank you for your service and for my freedom.
A grateful American
Brittany thanked the anonymous Good Samaritan for the "amazing" gesture.
"THANK YOU WHOEVER YOU ARE!!!" she wrote in her Facebook post. "You don't know how much pain this is going to save him from!!!"
