There are thousands of disabled veterans across the country, and millions of people that walk by them every day. Not this time…

Morgan Wheeler, a 21-year-old from Fayetteville, West Virginia, crossed paths with an older man who was struggling to to maneuver his wheelchair through a WalMart parking lot. She asked him if she could help him, but the man, who she believes is in his 60s or 70s, said that he didn’t need any help.

That didn’t stop her from insisting on wheeling him into the store. As they walked, they found out about each other’s lives. She told him about her nephews and horses, while he mentioned that he’s a veteran and had just lost his wife.

“He was very grumpy at first, but you could tell he was a proud veteran,” Wheeler told TODAY.com. “I really wanted to help him so I pushed through his comfort zone a bit.”

As Morgan helped him around the store, she picked up all of the items on the man’s meager shopping list of bread, soup, peanut butter and bananas, but then asked why he didn’t need other essentials, such as milk and eggs.

‘He told me that he might not make it home, without them going bad,’ said Morgan. ‘So I questioned how he got to the store. He told me that he did what he was doing in the parking lot until he got to 119 and then hitch hiked with a trucker to the parking lot.’

Without hesitation, Morgan ordered the man a taxi and picked up a gallon of milk.

‘After placing a gallon of milk in his cart he was crying,’ she said. ‘People were passing by us, looking sideways at him.

‘I knelt down and asked him what was wrong and he replied, that I “was doing far too much for an old man that I barely knew”.’

Morgan told the man that he deserved everything because he was a hero, who had fought for her and other Americans’ freedom. She never asked for his name, nor questioned him any further about his personal life.

She went on to pay for his groceries, against his request, waited for the taxi with him, loaded him in and sent him off, handing the driver $44 with the instructions to take the man home and help him into the house.

‘I told him thank you for his service before closing the door,’ she said. ‘Tears formed again and he thanked me one last time and said, “God bless you.” I returned to my car, and could not help but cry.’

Morgan, humbled by the experience and incensed at the idea of the poor man being ignored by everyone around him as he struggled, wrote her experience into a Facebook post, and shared it with her close friends and family.

Warning – you may need Kleenex for this one! Here is her story:

I walked out of Wal Mart today and got in my car. As I began to pull out, I had to wait for a man in a wheelchair to pass by. As I watched him, I noticed that he was missing his right leg from the knee down and was wearing, what appeared to be, old, government issued, combat boots. He was (from my guess) in his late sixties/early seventies and seemed to be stopping to take a break. He had not realized that I had started my car and was attempting to pull out, so when he saw me, he waved in an apologetic manner and rolled forward three more times and took another break. I backed up my car the inches I had previously pulled forward, put it in park, turned off the engine, and got out. I walked up to him and introduced myself. I asked him if I could assist him with his shopping today, and he, quite grumpily, said that he was doing just fine and was not getting much anyways. Me, being as stubborn as I am, insisted and proceeded to push him and tell him a little about myself. He interrupted me and said that he only needed help to the door, to which I picked up where I had left off before he interrupted me. I told him about Fayetteville, and my horses, and my nephews (I had parked a good ways away from the doors). And when I reached the doors, I continued to push him and talk. We reached the produce area and I asked him to tell me about himself. He reluctantly looked at me and began telling me that he lived in Sod- Lincoln County, and that he just recently lost his wife. I asked him if he was a veteran, to which he replied that he was- but with pain on his face, so I changed the subject and asked if he had made a shopping list. He handed me a list with only four things on it: peanut butter, soup, bread, and bananas. So we began shopping and I continued to talk… hard to believe- I know. Once we had gotten the items he needed, I asked if he needed the essentials: milk, eggs, butter. He told me that he might not make it home, without them going bad. So I questioned how he got to the store. He told me that he did what he was doing in the parking lot until he got to 119 and then hitch hiked with a trucker to the parking lot. So I called a taxi for him and grabbed the essentials plus a few other things and put them in the cart. After placing a gallon of milk in his cart he was crying. People were passing by us, looking sideways at him. I knelt down and asked him what was wrong and he replied, that I “was doing far too much for an old man that I barely knew.” I told him that where I am from, and from the family I was raised in, we help one another, no matter the task and that I had never met a stranger. I also told him that he deserved everything I was doing for him because he fought for my freedom and sacrificed so much. We made it to the check out line and I paid for his groceries, against his request. When we got outside, we waited for the taxi together. He thanked me over and over again and appeared- to me- to have been in a much better mood than when I found him. When the taxi arrived, I helped him load his groceries and wheelchair into the taxi and asked the driver to take him home and help him into his house with his groceries. I gave him the only cash I had on me- $44, also against his will. I told him thank you for his service before closing the door. Tears formed again and he thanked me one last time and said, “God bless you.” I returned to my car, and could not help but cry. This is the world we live in today. How many people passed him and would have continued to pass him while he struggled? How many people are willing to give their money to Vanity Fair to read all about Bruce Jenner and not help a veteran pay for his groceries? Today was a truly humbling experience for me, and I consider myself extremely blessed to have the capability of understanding what is truly important in this world. THAT man was a HERO, and far too many will say otherwise. I am sorry that this post was so long, and if you have read it to this point, I hope you are as humbled as I was. God bless the men and women who have fought for our right to view the wrong people as heroes, and thank God for the people who know better.

Morgan later posted this on her Facebook page which again shows you what a wonderful person she is!

I have received an outpour of comments and messages thanking me for what I did yesterday. One of which, was from Nicky Walters, a reporter from WOWK 13 News asking for an interview. In all honesty, I do not want to be seen as a hero- but an average person helping out someone in need. The reason this weighed so heavily on my heart is the big stir about Bruce Jenner. In my eyes, he is NOT a hero and neither am I. I am so incredibly honored that my story has inspired thousands of people, but I would really love to stay out of the spotlight. I am just an average person doing one good deed at a time, as God places them in my path. Again, I am so humbled by the love and kindness, but I do not want to be seen as something I am not, because that would- in fact- make me a hypocrite! Thank you all

Such a wonderful story. This is what America is all about! We hear about so few acts of kindness nowadays and that is sad. We all need to band together and lend a helping hand to those who truly need and deserve it. This young lady IS a hero in my eyes and we all can learn a lesson from this story! I want you to share this to as many people as you can because we all need a little ray of sunlight in what otherwise seems like a gloomy world.

Please take a moment and consider sharing this article with your friends and family. Thank you, we appreciate it!
