He Demands Soldier's Airline Ticket, She Was Floored With What He Did Next

A woman took to social media to share an experience she had on a recent flight. She witnessed an act of kindness that touched her heart, and it inspired her to do a good deed as well. What made the incident even more moving is that the man did something very sweet for a member of the military.

Airlines do try to give some advantages to members of the United States Armed Forces. For example, they typically allow military service members to board first. When service members disembark a plane, the crew usually thank them for their service. But there's really only so much they can do on an average day.

One man was sitting in a first-class seat when he noticed a woman in the U.S. Army boarding the plane. He stopped her and stood up, then said, "Sorry, ma'am, I'm in your seat."

The woman said there must be some mistake.

"What does your ticket say?" the man asked.

She replied, "I'm in 13-B."

The man insisted she takes his expensive, comfortable first class seat. He went and took her seat back in coach. The uncomfortable seat was in the middle of the middle aisle. The man didn't complain at all, and the service woman was floored.

Another passenger witnessed the whole incident. She quickly wrote a note to the man in 13-B: "Please accept a drink or snack on me," she wrote. "If everyone treated people the way you treated the service woman, the world would be a better place."

She sent the note along with some money to 13-B, but the man refused to accept it. The woman wrote about the incident on the Facebook page 'Love What Matters'. The story has gotten more than 37,000 responses with people applauding the man, the woman who shared the story, and the service woman who fights for our freedom.
