A 96-year-old WWII veteran came into a Chick-fil-A with a flat tire, so the manager rushed out to fix it

It took Chick-fil-A manager Daryl Howard, right, about 15 minutes to change a flat tire for a 96-year-old WWII veteran employees know as "Mr. Lee."

(CNN)A manager at a Maryland Chick-Fil-A was quick to help when he saw that a regular customer needed more than his usual chicken biscuit and coffee.

Daryl Howard was taking orders Thursday morning at the restaurant in Severn when a 96-year-old WWII veteran, known to employees as Mr. Lee, came to the register and said he had a flat tire.
