Then a young private walked in. and when the veteran spotted him, you could see the life in the veteran rising from the ashes. He was thrilled! He jumped out of his seat, ran up to the soldier and started chatting it up. the private could only nod. you could tell he wanted to leave but was being respectful. He kept nodding and smiling. but after his food got cold, he told him he had to go. and said his good-bye and walked off.
The veteran sat back down and resumed his grumpy slouched posture and finished his meal.
