The men and women of our military are awesome, aren’t they? In case there was any doubt, one Airman on leave in New Jersey just had to prove it to us again. On Sunday night the member of the Air Force was enjoying a stroll through his local TJ Maxx sipping on a coffee when he noticed something unusual happening in front of him.
A robber had entered the store wearing a ski mask and dark clothes. He had walked quickly and with purpose through the store before arriving at the jewelry counter. As he reached the men’s watches he threw a rock through the glass counter where the jewelry is kept. He was able to grab over 25K$ worth of watches before he began moving to make his exit.
It’s at that point the brave man entered the scene to do something about the robbery. As the robber began to run for the door the Air Force member sprinted after him and tackled him, just yards away from the jewelry counter. They struggled for a bit before the robber was able to break free, leaving behind his mask and jacket doing so. As soon as he was free of the heroic soldier he sprinted for the door without any of his loot.
Not only do our brave military men and women give their best “over there,” they come home and do the same here.
