Transcript for Wounded vet comes to Colin Powell's rescue
We go to a great moment. It's about a veteran coming to the aid of former secretary of state and four-star general Colin Powell. Take a look at this. Powell was on his way to Walter read military hospital on Wednesday when he blew a tire but that's when a 33-year-old military veteran pulled over to help and the man who had lost his leg while working on a civilian in Afghanistan helped Powell get the job done and here's what he had to say. He asked me why do you want to help me? I said well, you can wait around for a two-legged guy but right now you have a one-legged guy willing to help you. Politically there's a lot of tension but for people to stop what they're doing for a moment to help somebody out, that's what you're supposed to do. That's what he did. He did it because he has a good heart and took this selfie before heading on their way and Powell said the veteran, Anthony Maggert, touched his soul and reminds him about what this country is all about. It's getting hundreds of thousands of like on Facebook. Great reminder, sometimes take a little time to help somebody out. Make the world a little bit better. Helped out another patriot right there as well. Especially with where we are in Washington, that's a good one. Thank you.
