Airline baggage handlers have a reputation for mishandling, losing, and all around abusing the cargo they are tasked with.
But the Delta Honor Guard is not you’re typical group of baggage handlers.
A select group of baggage handlers and other Delta employees at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, they are responsible for the transport of fallen American soldiers.
And they take that job very, very seriously.
This video shows how the ceremony they hold for a fallen soldier and his dog. You can see the people inside the terminal paying their respects as well.
Big shout out to Delta for the respect they give to our heroes, more airlines should do this.
