Delta Honor GuardI had no idea that Delta did this for our heroes. Big kudos to them for this! Oh, and by the way, try to keep it together for the video...I couldn't. (www.youtube.com) More...

Having a son and daughter in law who served in the Army...I say THANK YOU to the men and women of Delta and what you do. It will not be forgotten.
Not unique to Delta. Most of the big ones do it. Many of the staff are ex military. Very deep emotions.
I think many of them are ridden with guilt how the USA as a nation turned their backs on the returners from Viet Nam. Jane Fonda did her nation no favours. Everytime I see the make up advert with her in it that reminds me.
You know, when I got back from Vietnam Nam the " cold shoulder" so to speak never bothered me much. I guess I was just happy to make it back when so many of the guys I flew with didn't. But Jane Fonda did bother me and does today. Her apologies are pretty damn hollow and definitely fall on deaf ears.
I saw this done by American Airlines a couple of years ago at ORD. Very emotional for all that were watching.
