Vietnam Veteran Charles “Bud” Phillips was grabbing supplies at a Publix supermarket in Land O’ Lakes and he got a HUGE surprise.
We see you John Cena!
Charles’ daughter told Entertainment Tonight the story behind the picture on Reddit:
“My dad was behind him in the checkout line. They were chatting and John thanked my dad for his service [after] seeing his SeaBees hat. John secretly paid for all of his groceries. My dad didn’t even know until he was being checked out and the cashier said, ‘John paid for your groceries.’ The bill was around $100.”
“My dad is a retired Vietnam veteran [and] a widow. We lost my mom five years ago unexpectedly [after] they were married almost 50 years. So, as you can imagine, not too much these days make him smile as big as he did in that picture. That’s what so special about this moment. A simple act of kindness brightened his day. Along with his family seeing that smile on his face!”
“He’s a stay-home, cook-from-scratch kind of guy. He loves to cook. So, going to the grocery store to gather ingredients is his get-outta-the-house event these days.”
This is a great gesture from John Cena, nice to see good people in the world.
