Thief Steals $7,000 from 91-Year-Old Army Veteran at Gas Station: Community Responds with Generosity
Sometimes a horrible situation can be turned into an unexpected blessing, thanks to the pull of a heartwrenching story and the generosity of strangers.
One Army veteran from Arizona was reminded of that this month after being robbed of his hard-earned money.
Floyd Barber, a 91-year-old veteran who served in the Korean War, had saved up some money to get some much-needed dental work done. He had $7,000 in cash that he was taking to the bank to deposit.
On his way to make the deposit, he stopped at a gas station on the corner of N. Silverbell and Cortero Road in Tucson, Arizona. A woman trying to sell fake gold approached him.
“I was on my way to Chase Bank,” he told Fox News. “I stopped at Fry’s service station to get some gas, and my money was in an envelope in my pocket.”
