After taking a day off of work and waiting for hours, the veteran’s wish miraculously happened. The celebrity said the sign caught his eyes, and he got off his car to meet the man. Although their interaction was short, the veteran’s said that the few seconds with the celebrity was worth it.

I think the biggest thing about this video isn’t about the short interaction. I think it’s about how Johnson went about the situation. The celebrity could have just drove off in his car and no feelings would be hurt, but he didn’t. He got off his car and gave the man a few seconds. Something so small, yet it meant so much to the man who took time out of his day to wait for Johnson.

What’s even more inspiring about this interaction is the fact that Johnson then went on social media and posted about it.

In a Facebook post, he writes,

“This US Vet was waiting for hours on the side of the road in hopes to meet me. He was holding up this sign when I drove by and it caught my eye.

Great meeting you brother and thanks for showing me those old pics from when I got my first tatau here in Hawaii. I appreciate all your kind words and more importantly I appreciate all you do for our country. Make sure you and your family come to our big military show #RockTheTroops in a few weeks.

And for me personally, chance meetings like this will always be one of the coolest parts of fame.

Thank ya Universe.”
