Disabled Veteran Notices Something In His Yard - Receives Unexpected Surprise (Photos)

Christopher Garrett is an army veteran who served in Afghanistan, and was seriously injured in the line of duty.

Brittany, Garrett’s wife, explained what happened to him:

“He was shot through the lower abdomen, and the bullet exited his right butt cheek. He took the
bullet while on a night mission in Afghanistan.”

He was given a medical retirement and is 100% disabled. That said, even with his disability and the pain, Christopher mowed the lawn of their home with the push mower every week.

Then a kind gift from complete stranger made a huge difference in their lives. Brittany posted about their experience with a Good Samaritan on social media:

"Where do I begin? Something AMAZING happened today! As I was getting ready for my day, my husband appeared at the door with tears in his eyes holding our son.

My heart sank and I thought someone we love took a trip to Heaven....He quickly assured me that no one had died, but someone had just given him a very expensive riding lawn mower!”

A very grateful Brittany continued with her Facebook post:

“I don't know who they are, but they have been watching my 100% combat disabled husband push mow our entire yard once or twice a week, and thought this would help make more time for the important things in life!!!

THANK YOU WHOEVER YOU ARE!!! You don't know how much pain this is going to save him from!!!”

She also included a photo of the note that came with the new riding mower:

“I hope this saves time for the things that matter most in your life. Thank you for your service and for my freedom.

Sincerely, A grateful American”

Kudos to the true American who donated the riding mower to the Garrett’s. It’s great to know that a man who paid a huge price to protect his country will not have to suffer in pain every time he mows his lawn.
