Kat in GA ~ A Soldiers' Angel

That is an awesome story! I've seen it before but never get tired of it. I checked www.Snopes.com to see if it's true or urban legend or a little of both - it says, "Undetermined, investigation in progress." But I do know that we DO cheer our Heroes in the Airport down here -- and that's because we appreciate every one of y'all, more than you can ever know, and we are really, really proud of you.

God bless.

Great story and glad you could be a part of it.

A few thousand NG soldiers are moving to the Mexican border and I'm down here with them for a bit. When I was passing through the Dallas airport, I stopped for lunch. As I ordered, I heard a voice say, "I'll pay for that." I looked to my left and there was an American Airlines stewardess handing a twenty dollar bill to the cashier. It felt kind of strange having this nice lady pay for my food when I'm a field grade officer who can more then afford it but she wanted to show her appreciation for me as a man in uniform.

All this makes us proud to be Americans, eh?

God bless!


I too have recieved this email.
My husband just returned to Iraq from his mid-tour leave. The gentleman that sat with him on the plane had seen our son run up to my husband crying for one last hug. He and my husband talked throughout the flight and had exchanged addresses. About a week later I recieved a gift card along with a letter saying he was proud of my husband and wished our family well. Not only am I thankful to this man for his appreciation for my husband but because it was an answer to my prayers. We were running low on money and needed diapers and formula for our infant and with the gift card I was able to get what I needed for my family.


Gosh. Now I have to go wash my face. :)

I will be the chaplain of the 1-125 Field Artillary Unit, which is being re-tasked as a convoy security unit. We will leave for Iraq in the spring of 2006. Here is the story of my journey.
