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.
