A touching moment was captured on video as Delta Airline crew members staged a solemn ceremony to honor a fallen soldier and his K-9 partner when their remains arrived at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The airline crew carefully transferred the cargo into special carts painted specifically for the occasion, as passengers watched from the terminal above.
The footage below shows volunteer members of the Delta Honor Guard receiving the flag-draped coffins of the soldier and his bomb-sniffing companion that were killed by an IED.
We had no idea Delta honored soldiers like this, and after watching this video we have a lot more respect for them.
