Fascinating story- but melancholy at the same time:

"The pilot was standing around as I got out of my wheelchair to board my flight to Portland. He followed me and the flight attendant who volunteered to carry my bag. I fling myself into my seat. He quickly asked, "were you in the military." I replied "yes."

He said, "Afghanistan 2010?" Again, although surprised this time, I said slowly "yessss."

He then told me that he recognized me, my injuries, and my face. He told me he never knew if I survived or not.
Marc Vincequere is his name. He flies with United now. Crazy small world. He was the pilot that flew me out of Afghanistan."

Reading this story and seeing the picture gives me the chills.

You mean melancholy, I'm thinking.

They look different age ranges. Hard to tell.

Dang though. Touching for sure.
Thanks, I will edit the thread to read melancholy instead on melon collie.
