REGINA Thomason and her brother, Dwayne Roach, went to IHOP in Abilene, Texas on August 22 and left with more than just leftovers. Roach suffers from Down Syndrome and had a thing for badges and name tags. The two had stopped at IHOP following a doctor’s appointment. Almost instantly, Roach had noticed their server’s name tag and commented on how he liked it.
After serving the siblings their food, the waitress, Millie Young, set out to do a nice thing for the 50-year-old. Before the siblings left, Young pinned a name tag labeled “CAPTAIN AMERICA” which is who Roach had introduced himself as.
“When people come in, I want to make them smile. If they leave happy, it makes me happy,” Young told KTXS. Roach’s uncle is a Sheriff’s deputy and has provided him with badges in the past. He even has one that makes him an honorary officer.
