Happy Thanksgiving! "Mystery Man" Shows His Appreciation for Missouri's Finest

As we gather together with our loved ones on this Thanksgiving Day, it can be far too easy to forget that there will be those that don't have the same luxury.

While your turkeys brown and you prepare your stuffing, take a moment to remember the men and women of law enforcement out on patrol. For them, their jobs mean sacrificing time with their own families so that the rest of us may enjoy our feasts in peace.

In St. Louis, Missouri, one mysterious man spends his whole year making sure local cops know they're appreciated.

From Fox News:

Officers in a St. Louis suburb don’t have to worry about making sure they have cash to pay for their lunch, thanks to the generosity of a local resident.

The “mystery man” picks up the tab for local police officers stopping in for sandwiches at Protzel’s Deli in Clayton, just outside St. Louis.

“My ruling is, if you take care of people like that, you’ll get it back 10-fold,” the man, who wished to remain unidentified, told FOX 2.

He’s been picking up the tab for officers’ lunches at the deli for over a year, contributing a particular amount of cash to the establishment to pay for the sandwiches.

Local law enforcement said they are just grateful for the man’s generosity.

“We see a lot of negativity in our job. Bad accidents, domestic-related issues, assaults, burglaries, robberies. So it’s always nice on the other side of that job, when we’re not dealing with those types of calls – and we go somewhere and we see people thanking us,” St. Louis County Police Spokesman Sgt. Shawn McGuire told FOX 2.

Some officers have figured out who the generous donor is, and gone out of their way to thank them.

It's little gestures like these, small acts of kindness that prove America is still a country worth fighting for.

God Bless our police officers, and from the whole Condition Yellow team, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
