It is the little things in life that count the most and this man proved that with one small gesture that meant the world to its recipient. If you have ever traveled before, you have probably seen the special treatment that is given to members of our nation’s armed services.
However, this man decided to take it to a whole new level. After the service members were allowed to board the flight early, as is custom, he decided that this was not enough of a reward for all of the hard work that they do and their willingness to put their own lives on the line to protect everyone else’s freedom.
A uniformed woman had boarded the flight and after everyone had sat down in first class, a man got up from his seat and told her that he was accidentally sitting in her rightful chair. While she was confused initially, this confusion immediately turned into gratitude when she realized what was taking place.
One kind gesture deserves another, as a woman saw the man graciously giving up his seat to the servicewoman and decided to let him know what that meant to her. She gave him some money for snacks and beverages, but the man did not need a reward for his good deed and declined her offer.
America is a great place because of people like these and the misconception that America does not appreciate its military personnel is an erroneous one indeed. This story certainly proves that and we are glad to share a country with such thoughtful people.
