Sometimes it’s easy to forget that there is still goodness in the world, thanks to the amount of negativity in the news today. But people can still be amazingly generous, as this combat disabled veteran found out.


From the Independent Journal:

Specialist Christopher Garrett was a combat engineer with the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division when he was deployed to Afghanistan, but a one-night mission changed everything.

Independent Journal Review spoke to his wife, Brittany, who explained what happened:

“He was shot through the lower abdomen, and the bullet exited his right butt cheek. He took the bullet while on a night mission in Afghanistan.”

After being treated for his injuries, he received a medical retirement and was classified as 100% disabled. Despite his disability and the pain it caused him, Brittany said that- once or twice a week – Christopher still went out and mowed their lawn, struggling with the push mower.

And then a complete stranger changed their lives. Brittany posted the following photos to her Facebook page:

This is incredibly generous, but it’s also something he absolutely deserves. After all, freedom is worth much more than just a lawnmower.
