The heart-wrenching voice of flight attendant Denis Snow splashed the air as she sang her version of the National Anthem in respect to a fallen veteran who was on her flight.

Alaska Airlines passenger Julia Collman Jette posted a video to Facebook from the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport of customer service agent Snow, singing the national anthem in tribute to a veteran named AJ, whose ashes she learned would be traveling on their flight from Anchorage to Seattle.

The Alaska Airlines flight was transporting a fallen Vietnam veteran who had served in the U.S. military for more than twenty years.

Once Snow was informed that the veteran was making his final trip home, she announced the presence of his remains and stated that she would be offering the “Star-Spangled Banner” as a tribute to him. Her hauntingly beautiful voice immediately caused everyone within earshot to stand still and offer their respects.

Jette took to Facebook to recount the wonderful and heartwarming incident. Her post read:

“Neal recorded this and luckily enough he had his phone out to record it. I was fighting back tears! This happened in the Anchorage airport just before we boarded our flight to Seattle. A fallen soldier’s ashes were being carried home on our plane. He served 21 selfless years in our military. What a moving experience and what an amazing voice of that Alaska Airlines employee!”

Opposing Views described the heart-warming tribute:

Once she started singing, her beautiful voice caught the attention of everyone within earshot, and they stood still to offer their respects.

According to Neal, almost everyone at the airport stood to offer their respects. He stated that “all but two” were standing as Snow sang the National Anthem. He said: “It was awesome to see the hundreds of people stop in their tracks to pull their hats off and stand at attention to show their respect.”

There is no policy requiring staff to do anything to honor the soldiers. However, Denise Snow always sings the National Anthem every time a fallen soldier is put on her flight. She also honors veterans by making the Honor Flight, a program started by a non-profit organization to help U.S. military veterans visit war memorials for free.

    There are millions of good hearted patriots we just never get to hear about their deeds. MSM is going to have to remake themselves if they are to remain on the air. Their lies and defamations of good citizens has to stop. jwstx
