Nice Gesture


Every day at DFW Airport, troops are brought home from Iraq. Some of them for good, others for a brief couple of weeks.

They all get the same treatment. The fire/rescue people give the arriving plane a water-cannon salute (see above). And once the weary troops (the flight originates in Shannon, Ireland) step off the plane, dozens of local volunteers form a double line and applaud as each soldier leave the gate.

Very cool gestures by very nice folks for very deserving men and women.

Wow, that's really cool. When we were at DFW in July to pic up my sister there were 3 servicemen that arrived and were awaiting luggage on the bagging carousel. I took Luke over and had him shake all 3 of their hands and tell them thank you for what they are doing for our country. It was a sweet moment watching a 2 year old say, "Ank You" and not know what he was doing, but they appreciated the gesture. I could tell.
