My husband and I wed three weeks before he leaves fer Afghanistan, so we decide to
postpone our honeymoon until after he comes home. A year ten we finally find time
for our honeymoon and decide to go to “BESS. As were boarding the plane, we'
decided to wear what we had worn fer the wedding so we can arrive in style: he' s in
his formal Army dress t. , while I 'm in my wedding dress. J
Flight Attendant: "We would now like to invite our first class passengers and any
members of the military in uniform and their guests to board."
As we get up to hoard, a male passenger scoffs ioudby.)
Passenger: "That' s bulls'"'"'"! Why should that ff” get to hoard first?!"
There are gasps from the other passengers.)
Passenger: “F*** ing murderer! You should be ashamed of yourself."
At this point, my husband and I are beet red with anger and embarrassment, but we
choose to ignore this man and hoard the piano. After the rest of the plane has
Named, a member of the Eight crew approaches us in coach. J
Flight Attendant: "sir, ma' am: two of our passengers would like to offer you their
seats in first class."
Me: "‘shocked"‘ "Ytou' re kidding!"
Flight Attendant: "Nat at all, ma' am. They' cleared it with us, and would like to
switch seats with you before we take off, in recognition of your service."
As we stand up, the other passengers take interest. An aider gentleman and his wife
began to make their way back from are ciaos, obviously the couple who had offered
their sea ts to us. J
Gentleman Passenger: "Are you folks on your honeymoon?"
Husband: "Yes, sir."
Gentleman Passenger: “Wonderful." “in ffii voice, so the whole plane can hear"' "My
wife and I would take it as a personal favor to us if you would sit in our seats up in first
class. I served in the military, as did my father, as well as two of our sons, one of
whom is no longer with us, And I wanted to let you both know how proud we are to be
flying with you today and for everything you' done for us and our country. I' m
dreadfully sorry for the way you were treated when you were boarding, and we hope
you enjoy the seats and have a lovely honeymoon and a wonderful life together."
my now, I am in tears, and the man shakes my husband" s hand while his wife gave me
a big hug. We went up to are ciaos and the gentleman and his wife took our seats in
couch to applause from the whole plane and aiight crew. Furthermore, the crew
treated us iike royalty for the whole aiight. We were we upon disembarking that the
people who were seated next to the passenger who had scurred us in the are place
had asked to he moved away from him, and that he was given enough dirty HERE and
reproachful comments that he muted for the entire fiight.)
