A U.S. soldier deployed in Afghanistan was thrilled to the point of tears by $40 and a note of support for his girlfriend back home. Army Spc. Albert DeSimone said what overwhelmed him was knowing that a stranger was “there for her” while he was overseas.

DeSimone’s girlfriend Samantha Ford was leaving a Dunkin’ Donuts Sunday in Arlington, Mass., when she saw a white envelope tucked under the windshield wiper on her car, and posted it to a military Facebook page.

She has a bumper sticker that reads, “1/2 of my heart is in Afghanistan.”

The note read, “I noticed the sticker on the back of your car. Take your hero out to dinner when he comes home. Thank you both for serving. Him deployed and you for waiting. –United States veteran. God bless.”
