As we prepared to land in Las Vegas, the stewardess made an announcement.
“We have someone special aboard, and we are going to let him deplane before anyone else does so.”
Sure enough after we had landed and were at our gate, everyone remained seated, then this young man arose, looked around as if he were embarrassed and gathered his bags. Applause resounded within the cabin of that Southwest plane and continued as this young man walked down the aisle and through the exit door.
It was the least we could do to honor a young soldier and to thank him for his service. May he be blessed.
