"I noticed the sticker on the back of your car," it said, referring to a "Half my Heart is in Afghanistan" bumper sticker.

"Take your hero out to dinner when he comes home.

"Thank you both for serving.

"Him deployed and you for waiting."

It was signed "United States veteran" and "God Bless."

almost 220,000 times and has attracted about 50,000 comments.

"It was crazy!!" Ford said in an email to TODAY.com.

She said she had told her boyfriend about the gesture.

"He was so touched, and he said it's people like this that make him proud to be an American Soldier," she said.

"We are forever grateful and we will DEFINITELY be paying it forward! God bless our troops!"

the 2nd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment, 1st Armor Brigade Combat Team,
