Operation Gratitude Sends Coffee To Troops Around The World
A veteran from Operation Iraqi Freedom knows first-hand what it’s like to be far from home dealing with high pressure, dangerous situations. Chris McArthur was just 20 when he was in one of the first Marine Corps units to reach Baghdad back in 2003 and now he wants to give back to the troops in harm’s way.
These days, McArthur owns a coffee shop and bistro called Black and Brew Coffee House as well as Patriot Coffee Roasters. So he’s sending soldiers and sailors overseas free coffee. He started “Operation Gratitude,” which sends about 30 bags of Patriot Coffee to an armed forces unit stationed around the world, once a month.
“I’m familiar with the sacrifices they’re making, the time away from their family, the experiences they’re going through and the things they have to witness,” McArthur says. And a little free coffee could be the perfect pick-me-up to make their day.
McArthur says they need people to nominate their friends and loved ones to receive the coffee care packages. Know someone who’s actively serving in the armed forces who’d like some free coffee? Nominate them here.

Deputy Pulls Distressed Man From Ledge
Sheriff’s Deputy James Robinson was responding to a call of a suicidal man in Yorktown, Virginia and found the slumped man sitting with his legs dangling from a highway overpass. Traffic was moving down below as Robinson tried to talk to the man and assess the situation, video captured by his bodycam shows him asking what’s going on and if they can talk for a moment.
Robinson tried to get the man to engage, but when he put his cellphone down, the Deputy made his move. He says he ran up behind the man, grabbed him around the chest and pulled him to the ground safely, and the man was sobbing.
The man told Robinson he has nothing left and he responded with kind words of encouragement. The two kept talking until paramedics arrived to get him help, thanks to Robinson’s brave actions. “Knowing that person has another day to live, and hopefully, live out the rest of their life … that’s all the happiness I need right there,” he says.

Strangers Jump In To Help Save People And Dog From Sinking Car
When a truck crashed through the guardrail at the marina in Long Beach, California recently, it kept driving right into the water. Fortunately, bystanders jumped right into the water to help rescue workers save two people and a dog from the sinking vehicle.
Jeff Jones, a captain with a boat-towing service at the marina saw the whole thing and captured video of the scary scene. Lifeguards and the Long Beach Fire Department were there to get both people and their dog out of the truck safely. A statement from LBFD says the “couple was treated on scene and released,” so no one was hurt in the accident.
