Video: Homeless Veteran Brought To Tears By This Man's Act of Kindness

A homeless veteran broke down in tears after a stranger's act of kindness. The homeless vet approached Max Zahir, who was in his vehicle at a gas station, and asked if he had any change he could spare.

“What do you need the change for?” Zahir inquired. The homeless veteran told Max he hadn't eaten since the previous day.

Zahir told the man to hop in his car and drove him to a fast food restaurant so he could get something to eat. But that wasn't all he did for the military veteran.

Zahir then told the homeless veteran he would meet him each day in that some location and offered to buy the veteran a meal everyday until he was able to get back on his feet.

The act of kindness brought the homeless veteran to tears and he told Zahir, "Nobody's shown me this much kindness in a while. Thank you so much brother."

“It’s just a small thing,” Zahir replied. “You served this country, and you deserve better.”

The homeless vet noted, “There’s a lot of us out here, bro.”

In Zahir’s video description, he said the idea behind him posting the clip is that “not every homeless person asks for money to buy drugs” and “to raise awareness for our homeless veterans.”

Homeless Veteran Tears Up Thanks to Kindness of Stranger

Inside Edition reported that Zahir has also offered the homeless vet a job at his restaurant, Celebrities Sports Grill Yucaipa in California. The good Samaritan also started a GoFundMe page to raise money to buy sleeping bags and food for homeless veterans as winter approaches.

I’m a Persian Gulf war veteran myself. I know the struggles. My family and I was homeless for a short period last year. We are still not quite up to the level to where we want to be but we never gave up. I try to pay it forward as much as I can. Especially in the winter months, living in Michigan, I try to keep an extra jacket, hats and gloves in my vehicle to give to anyone on the street that might need them.

We’ve to understand that our veterans don’t reserve this kind of treatment from anyone. We’ve to show them total respect and honer. They’re the once who kept our country save. Total respect. As for the guy who bought him lunch. Total respect as well.
