Lieutenant Colonel Robert Risdon's good deed went viral this week when someone caught him on camera purchasing hot meals for two young boys at an Alabama Taco Bell. The boys, aged 9 and 12, were in the fast food restaurant selling homemade desserts for money. "I noticed they had just gotten out of the rain, they were both soaking wet," Risdon told WALB. The soldier sprang into action, asking the kids if they were hungry and offering to buy them dinner.

The touching moment was captured on video by Jason Gibson, who shared the post on Facebook on Tuesday. It's since been viewed over 126,000 times.
