Army Ingenuity / Driving Permit As the crowded airliner is about to take off, the pea


Recommended Posts

As the crowded airliner is about to take off, the peace is shattered by a five year old boy who picks that moment to throw a wild temper tantrum.

No matter what his frustrated, embarrassed mother does to try to calm him down, the boy continues to scream furiously and kick the seats around him.

Suddenly, from the rear of the plane, a man in an Army uniform is seen slowly walking up the aisle. Stopping the flustered mother with an upraised hand, the courtly, soft-spoken Special Ops Soldier leans down, motioning toward his chest, and whispers something into the boy's ear.

Instantly, the boy calms down, gently takes his mother's hand, and quietly fastens his seat belt.

All the other passengers burst into spontaneous applause.

As the Soldier slowly makes his way back to his seat, one of the cabin attendants touches his sleeve and asks quietly, "Excuse me, sir, but could I ask you what magic words you used on that little boy?"

The Soldier smiles serenely and gently confides, "I showed him my parachute jump wings, service stars, and battle ribbons, and explained that they entitle me to throw one passenger out the plane door, on any flight I choose."
