‘People’ Magazine story: On his way to visit Israel with his family, Los Angeles entrepreneur Shlomo Rechnitz came across a group of 400 U.S. soldiers during a lay over in Shannon, Ireland.

The servicemen were preparing to eat their paper sack dinners when Rechnitz asked their commanding officer if he could purchase hot meals for all of them instead.

When the commander said it was unnecessary, Rechnitz insisted and each soldier was then given $50 to dine out at a restaurant in the airport of their choosing.
