Dave Gartland: Paying it forward

On Thursday, my wife and I were shopping at Albertsons on Bouquet Canyon Road. As we were getting ready to pay for our groceries, the gentleman next in line asked my wife if he could pay for our bill. He said he saw I was a veteran as I was wearing my Air Force baseball cap and wanted to pay it forward and appreciated my service. This man was gracious and sincere. I was overwhelmed, honored, and appreciated his kindness. To this man, you know who you are, be sure my wife and I will pay it forward as well. Thank you again. Dave Gartland Saugus
