I get a little lump in my throat every time I see military men and women at the airport… even though I sometimes am traveling with one! It always reminds me of the reality of war and the fact that so many sacrifice on our behalf. The Navy men’s lacrosse team recently encountered some very brave military folks too, when they were flying back to BWI airport after playing Notre Dame in a game.
While at the airport, the team encountered 67 World War II veterans. According to the Navy Athletics Facebook page, they visited with them, thanked them, and wished them well. Afterwards, as they watched the veterans leave the airport, the team lined up and saluted. They wrote, “It put the entire trip in perspective.”
