A World War II veteran performed an ultimate act of kindness when celebrating his 92nd birthday by touching the lives of others.
Edmund Rusinek celebrated his 92nd birthday early at his local Chick-Fil-A where he paid $1,500 worth of food for military families. This huge act of appreciation for our armed forces, isn’t the first time Rusinek has done something like this. The tradition dates back to 1945 when Rusinek was just a draftee before The War, he told The Orange County Register.
“This tradition, so to speak, got started in 1945 when I was a draftee training in Little Rock, Arkansas. To take a break from the GI food, some of my buddies and I left base for some good ol’ Southern food. At the restaurant, an elderly gentleman stepped up to us and asked, ‘Can you do me a favor? Will you let me buy your lunch? If you want to thank me, pass it down.’”
This was so amazing. Edmund wanted to celebrate his 92nd birthday buying food for all the active military that came in…
Rusinek explains his time in the service,“We were preparing for the invasion of Japan. I had completed 16 weeks of training when the bomb was dropped (on Hiroshima).” However, instead of heading to Japan, he worked at the Czechoslovakian border as a staff sergeant for two years. Finding work at North American Aviation in Downey, California after the war, Rusinek remained in the state where this sweet act occurred.
Living near the Joint Forces Training Base and the Naval Weapons Station in California, Rusinek said, “Fortunately, I live near an air base and a Navy base. There are lots of kids in the military around here, and they all look so young to me.”
“In preparation for his 92nd birthday on Feb. 19, Rusinek went into Chick-fil-A 11 days early to set up his generous giveaway. Manager Giola Arkis agreed to his terms and had nothing but positive words to say about him.“Edmund is a regular customer. He always comes in for a salad, cookies and coffee,” she said. ‘We call him our local sweet thing,'” according to Liftable.
Just looking to touch the lives of those putting their lives on the line to keep America safe Rusinek said, “I’m not a rich man,” he said, “but this, I can afford.”

SICK: American Icon Plymouth Rock Vandalized, Spray-Painted in Massachusetts
It’s likely the vandalism is an anti-American hate crime.
An icon of American heritage and civilization, Plymouth Rock, was found vandalized and spray-painted upon Monday morning by criminals at its namesake in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
Plymouth Rock symbolizes the first arrival of the pilgrims from England in North America in 1620 A.D. The vandalism was found just weeks before a ceremony intended to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the pilgrim’s arrival in Massachusetts.
The large boulder is marked with the characters ‘1620’ to symbolize the pilgrims’ arrival. The rock was the first sight of those who disembarked from the Mayflower in the New World.
It’s unclear what the red spray-paint on the rock is intended to convey, but there’s a strong possibility the vandalism is motivated by hatred towards the icon of American culture.
In addition to the rock, the spray-paint vandals also targeted a nearby statue intended to commemorate the first pilgrims to arrive in North America.
We are saddened and sickened by the recent vandalism in our historic town. This is just one of our historic monuments that was hit. We will begin clean up as soon as possible and the police are investigating. pic.twitter.com/kQeTxO7sor

It’s also noteworthy that the vandalism was found on President’s Day, suggesting a further possibility of anti-American hatred as a motivation.
400th anniversary celebrations of the pilgrims’ arrival are scheduled for April, and to this day are a point of pride for many of their descendants who live in Massachusetts.
The director of a Plymouth cultural and tourism agency, Lea Filson, expressed her disappointment to see the icon of America so disrespected.
“Seeing this type of disrespect for the historic reminders of the Mayflower story is both sad and unsettling. The outpouring of concern and anger over the incident has been a positive ending to a thoughtless gesture.”
The town of Plymouth has already removed the vandalism from the rock, and local police are investigating to locate the culprits.
