A subdued group of Delta Air Lines employees have gathered on the tarmac in Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia. They are here to greet the arrival of an airplane that has a very important cargo; the remains of a military soldier.
The employees who call themselves The Delta Honor Guard hold a ceremony for the fallen amidst a flurry of ground operations. They line up and lower flags as caskets are taken out and then they read a prayer for the departed souls. This particular day, there are two caskets; one for the soldier, the other for this K9 partner.
