WWII Veteran Is Surprised By How He Was Treated At Grocery Store, All I Can Say Is WOW!

Fred Mayhew, with his World War II veteran hat atop his head, pulled his money out of his pocket to pay for his groceries on Sept. 2, but a young woman standing in line behind him had other plans.

“I was standing there, and I had two $20s in my hand to pay for my groceries when the girl behind me said, ‘Put that back in your pocket. I’m gonna pay for that,’” Mayhew told the Bangor Daily News. “She told me, ‘Lots of luck’ and ‘thank you for being a veteran.’”

 “I’ve never seen her before in my life,” Mayhew said. “I said, ‘What’s going on here?’”  Mayhew, who will turn 89 in October, is a well-known resident of Hampden, Maine, according to the Bangor Daily News. The veteran regularly makes chocolate fudge which he delivers to local businesses, the fire department and senior citizen events.But while he was standing in line at the Hampden Hannaford grocery store earlier in September, it was he who received a gift. When he returned home from the store, Mayhew told his wife, Esther, that he hadn’t paid for the groceries.
