On a recent flight, professional hockey player Patrick Kane of The Chicago Blackhawks gave up his first-class seat and moved to coach so a uniformed U.S. serviceman could take his seat.
American Airlines flight attendant Teri Truss tweeted about the interaction she had with Kane on Twitter. She says the player approached her before takeoff and offered to give up his seat to the military member.
"He said 'there's a soldier on this flight,'" Truss explains. "He said 'I would like for him to sit up front, and I would like to give him my first-class seat, and I'll go to the back.'" She says the serviceman appreciated the generosity and thanked Kane personally during the flight.
