Rebecca Guerrero of Escondido, California, is proud of her brother's service in the armed forces, as he's done two tours in Afghanistan and remains over there as a base security guard.
Rebecca does her best to find her brother's favorite treats and ship them overseas. Unfortunately for Rebecca, he has special -- and sort of unusual -- tastes. For example, he likes Jalapeno-Ranch flavored Ruffles. Of course, not every store stocks these chips, so she's always thrilled when she finds them, which is exactly what happened at an AM/PM convenience store recently.
The store had the special Ruffles chips, so she asked an employee if she could order a full case. The owner ordered the case of chips – and then went further by giving the chips to Rebecca, free of charge.
It was a simple gesture, but it was also very special and inspiring for Rebecca and her brother. The donation allowed Rebecca to send a "taste of home" all the way to Afghanistan -- and it also let her brother know that many people appreciate his sacrifice and hard work.
