Taco Bell Dinner
Army Lt. Col. Robert Risdon stared directly at the door of the Taco Bell the second he noticed two guys. He felt exhausted, but being a soldier means you never let your guard down. He suddenly felt every muscle tense up. He had been trained as an Army Ranger, which means he could rely on his heavy training any time he felt the situation called for it. He didn't want any trouble that day, so he remained frozen, staring at the door. Suddenly, two boys walked towards him.
He Was A Hero
Robert Risdon had just made an appearance at the Senior Bowl when he suddenly felt like stopping for some tacos. He was seriously hungry. But when he stopped at the Taco bell in the town of Greenville, Alabama, he could've never imagined what was about to take place.
Nerves Of Steel
Some people were born to defend anyone who may be in need, even if it means putting their own lives at risk. It's those acts of bravery that make the world have nothing but admiration for anyone who's willing to do anything to protect us. As an Army Ranger, Risdon had seen it all. But he would've never imagine that his heroic act at an Alabama Taco Bell would end up getting so much praise around the world.

Suddenly, the two boys made their way inside the Taco Bell. But they didn't take Risdon by surprise as he was pretty tense with anticipation. All the other customers momentarily stared at them, trying to take a peek at the strangers that had just walked in. It went silent in the Taco Bell. The weather was awful outside, as it was raining heavily. You could even hear the raindrops hitting the asphalt outside. The boys moved towards him against the neon sign above the door.
Once the boys were in plain sight, Risdon took notice of the way they looked. Their clothes looked like they’d been through the wringer and rainwater dropped from their sleeves. He jotted these little details down in his mind without thinking. For example, the larger guy kept his hands hidden in the pockets of his black windbreaker. He couldn’t stop shaking either. But was it because he was cold or was he afraid?
