Delta Honor Guard ~ Delta Baggage Handlers Pay Respect
Error, group does not exist! Check your syntax! (ID: 52)I have to travel a good deal for business and have been honored to be on several Delta Airlines Flights that were returning fallen soldiers home. It is a moving experience to be a part of. The Captain asks everyone to remain seated when the plane pulls into the gate to allow the soldiers who are accompanying their fallen brothers home to deplane. I came across this video of the part the Delta Baggage Handlers play. The video above was recorded at Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson airport. As you watch the video, notice the number of people watching from inside the terminal.
Most people have no idea that Delta does this. This soldier was a K9 soldier who worked with a dog trained to find IED’s. Yes, the second small coffin is the soldiers partner. This is a soldier and his dog who died for all of us. Kudos to Delta and it’s Delta Honor Guard for paying the utmost respect to these heroes!
