One thing you will never, ever forget? Being on a commercial flight, and the crew makes an announcement, that it is their HONOR to be a part of escorting a fallen soldier home. They ask after landing, that everyone remain seated while the military escort team deboards. Of course, during this time, the plane is silent, except for the sound of the casket being unloaded from the cargo hold. Pray for our heroes and their families. Thank you.
