Anonymous Secret Santa Pays Vietnam Veteran's Tab at New York Diner

An unidentified diner made an elderly couple’s day by footing the bill for their meal.

An anonymous diner made an elderly couple’s day by footing the bill for their meal.

William Berczan, a Vietnam veteran, and his wife, Antoinette, recently took a trip to the Premier Diner in Commack, New York, after visiting the doctor and receiving a clean bill of health.

Staff there said a woman paid their $30 tab, then left before the couple got a chance to say thank you.

"Normally when it does happen, the people do want to remain anonymous, I think it's nice," said the diner’s general manager, Gus Georgatos.

Now the Berzcans say that kind act is inspiring them to pay it forward.

"It would be nice for the holidays, it would be nice all year round, if you can do, and feel like doing it ... do it," William told WCBS.

The couple is now also encouraging others to do the same.
