Sgt. John Perry was a hero who gave his life saving others from a suicide bomber. But when his family was bringing his body home, some people on the plane booed over a related delay. Those people should be ashamed of themselves.

Sgt. John Perry was killed on Saturday in Afghanistan by a suicide bomber.
His father, Stewart Perry, mourned the loss of his son at a service on Thursday.
“Most importantly, I want people to know about the heroic thing that my son did,” he said.
His son stumbled on the suicide bomber before he could reach his target, a soldiers’ 5K Veterans Day run.
“He would have killed possibly 100, 200, who knows?” Perry said.
Perry said his son’s death comes comes at a time military service is facing disrespect. He said his family was even booed on the flight to bring his son’s body home over a delay.
“To hear the reaction of the flight being delayed because of a Gold Star family and the first class cabin booing, that was really upsetting, and it made us cry some more,” he said.
Trump is going to bring back respect for people who serve in our armed forces.
They deserve the gratitude of every single American.
