Two New Jersey firefighters, exhausted after a 12-hour call-out, stopped off at a diner for a 6:00 a.m. caffeine hit. To their surprise, however, their waitress picked up their tab as a mark of her gratitude for their thankless courage. And although she hoped to raise nothing more than a smile from the two men in return, the gift that they gave her back would be life-changing.
This particular event occurred on Wednesday July 22, 2015. The waitress in question was pouring coffee for the two firefighters when, by chance, she overheard them talking about a particularly tough blaze that they had just tackled.
