In some places, a woman standing in a parking lot handing out $100 bills would be greeted with suspicion. But in this case, there was nothing but appreciation.

The Placitas woman, who didn't want KOB Eyewitness News 4 to show her face, gave each of the soldiers $600 to help hold them over until the military pays them.

KOB has been referring to the woman who contacted us Wednesday after seeing our story "Cynthia". The soldiers are calling her their guardian angel.

"Cynthia" handed out all that money in the parking lot of Mario's pizzeria. Mario's donated a dollar for every meal they sold Thursday at their four locations.
