Shlomo Rechnitz is a very wealthy man.
The businessman and philanthropist is the owner of Brius Healthcare Services, the largest nursing home provider in the state of California. Typically, with money comes douchebaggery (See: Floyd Mayweather), but Shlomo Rechnitz is a horse of a different color. The 44-year-old has been awarded esteemed accolades in business and philanthropy and in 2013, he sent $10,000 to the families of each California police officer who fell in the line of duty.
So it should come as no surprise that Rechnitz assembled 400 U.S. soldiers during their layover in Shannon, Ireland and displayed a genuine act of kindness I’m sure our soldiers appreciated.
Per the description on YouTube:
An LA businessman named Shlomo Rechnitz paid $50 per meal for about 400 US solders in an airport in Shannon, Ireland. He saw them eating standard army food while all the other passengers in the terminal were eating in trendy and appetizing restaurants. Rechnitz then asked their commander if he can give them something extra. This is Rechnitz offering words of appreciation to the soldiers after the commander agreed.
So if you’re scoring at home, Rechnitz dropped $20,000 because he’s a rich bro with a good heart.

” … you guys risk your lives to protect me and protect my family. If I get to go out and see a whole bunch of Army soldiers and Marines, it’s something that makes me proud. I’m on my way to Israel now and you guys protect them, too, and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
