Soldier Dad Chated & Gives Address to a Stranger in Airport. Then Finds Out He Paid for his Family Vacation

When U. S. Army soldier Mr. Glascott returned home on leave from Iraq to celebrate his son’s birthday with a trip to Great Wolf Lodge, he met a stranger named Brad in an Atlanta, GA, airport during his layover.
They spoke about what Glascott was planning on doing during his time off, and Brad was very interested in hearing Glascott’s story. He asked for Glascott’s address to send him a card to thank him for his service. Not thinking much of it, Glascott wrote it down for him and carried on with his journey home to meet his family.
When Glascott’s family finally arrived at Great Wolf Lodge to check in, they received an incredible surprise: their trip was paid for in full by Brad, as a thank you to Glascott for his service.
Little acts of kindness like this go a long way, and Brad’s gift made the trip for the Glascott family especially memorable.
