A Veteran Meets the Person Whose Simple Words of Gratitude Got Him Through the War
Even the tiniest acts of kindness can leave a life-long impact. John Metzler, a veteran who fought in the Vietnam War, is living proof of this. On Christmas Day in 1970, while he was still fighting in the war, he received a very simple thank-you message from a sixth grader. The sentiment has stuck with him ever since, and in this piece from CBS Sunday Morning, Steve Hartman locates the sender and connects the two in a heartwarming moment.
