Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson committed a simple yet moving act of kindness by upgrading an Army veteran on his recent Alaska Air flight back to Seattle to first class.
The quarterback didn’t boast about his good deed — in fact, the only reason you’re hearing about it now is because the vet took to Twitter on Thursday to thank the Super Bowl-winning QB.
Russell Wilson was on my flight back to seattle and he brought me up to first class. Mad respect! #clutch— Kane Bernas (@co_kane144) April 30, 2015
As for the veteran, he later replied that it was the "best flight ever."
Best flight ever dude!— Kane Bernas (@co_kane144) April 30, 2015
Wilson also posted a photo of him hanging out with an Alaska Air crew with the caption, "Don't ever undervalue the importance of consistency."
The quarterback is an all-around class act.
