A moving story by a local NBC Sportscaster – he’s flying home from the Spur’s playoff wins in Denver. Two different soldiers sit in the seat next to him, on different legs of the flight – one on his way back to Iraq, and one on his way home from Iraq.
The returning soldier is attending the Spurs/Nuggets game here in San Antonio tonight. I hope the Spurs deliver him a victory. I hope they put on one hell of a show for him – he’s earned it.
It was one morning. Seat 6F. One seat, Two soldiers. One going out, one coming back. One sad, one happy. Two very different stories with one common thread. Two mothers will cry today, and somewhere there is a third. When seat 6F remains empty.
