World War II Vet Pays $1,500 Chick-Fil-A Bill for Military Families

Published

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.”

Sarah Palin Considering Primary Challenge to RINO Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski

Talk about an upgrade.

Published

on

Former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is considering a 2022 primary challenge to liberal Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski.

Murkowsi is currently one of two nominal Republican Senators who has declined to support a tentative Trump administration nominee for the Supreme Court. She also was the only Republican not to vote for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination in 2018.

Palin addressed Murkowski’s refusal to support conservative nominees for the Supreme Court in a set of three videos she uploaded to her Instagram page on Thursday. In subtle reference to a possible primary challenge, she pointed at her house in Wasilla, Alaska, mentioning that she’d be potentially willing to move away from the community to Washington D.C.

If you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing this time, and at least give a fair shake to the Supreme Court nominee that your president will be bringing before you, if you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing, … and do what the majority of Americans want you to do, to do what you were sent to Washington, D.C., to do,” said Palin to Murkowski in the video.

She referenced a notable campaign quip from 2008, when smug liberal pundits had mocked the vice presidential candidate for saying that she “can see Russia from her house.” (The assertion is more or less true, if not expressly literal- islands belonging to the Russian Federation can be seen from Alaska’s Diomede Islands.)

I can see 2022 from my house!” said the former Alaska Governor, referring to the next election in which the NeverTrump Senator would be held to account in an Alaska Republican primary.

Palin has always been a staunch conservative, even to the point of falling out of the good graces of globalist liberal John McCain’s elite political network after the 2008 election. She’d doubtlessly be a very strong candidate in a 2022 senatorial campaign.
