Travelers Pay Respect For Children of Fallen Service Members


Stories like this always gives us chillbumps. Over the weekend, travelers at the Nashville Airport stopped what they were doing to honor a plane of children who's parents had died in combat. 

The travelers stopped and sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" to pay their respect to the children.

Jen Tringale took to her Facebook and posted this:

“At the Nashville airport I walked out into the concourse to this scene @americanairlines was flying a plane full of children who had lost a parent in combat to Disneyworld on an all expenses paid trip and they threw a party for them at the gate, but when they announced them over the loud speaker and they lined up to board the plane the whole airport literally stopped and sang the national anthem with military present in salute. Most every person standing around, myself included was bawling at the sight of these kids and spouses who have paid so great a price for our country. To see all of this at Christmas time was so humbling. Seeing the general public in an airport stand still to honor these kids was simply beautiful,”
