June 2016 – Kernersville, NC - Gerald W. Bos

Thank You to the couple whom wished to remain anonymous at Out West restaurant in Kernersville,NC last night. When they saw my dad was a World War ll Veteran, they picked up our tab. This was an emotional moment for us. I hope one day that couple will know what this meant to us. This is a picture of my dad. 91 years young!!  ~daughter, Terri

Dad called me too. That is just wonderful for whoever did that and very touching. Dad needed that!! He took my sister and her boyfriend to dinner. He had this cap on and an unknown person paid for their meal after seeing Dad was a Veteran. As Father's Day approaches I am honored to be able to share this event and picture of my Dad.  ~daughter, Vicki

Dad was so excited about this Terri, that when he got home, he called to tell me about it. My thanks to the couple too. ~son, Tom
