Letter: Gold Star family unfairly treated

I am writing about an incident that happened regarding a Gold Star couple on their way to claim their hero son’s remains, who paid the ultimate sacrifice defending our country. America is free because of the brave.

Hoping they wouldn’t miss their connecting flight, the United Airlines captain proudly announced, “We have a very special military family on board. Please allow them to deplane first.” This caused someone in first class to boo. What kind of person would insult a Gold Star couple in their time of grief?

Next time you see a veteran or active duty person in the military, male or female, thank them for their service.

God bless our veterans and our soldiers, and God bless America.
