After Pearl Harbor, General Theodore Roosevelt was flying on a plane and seats were hard to come by. At a stop, priority was served on a very young sailor, but he wouldn’t get off the plane. “I want to see my mother,” he said.
“Sorry son,” the ticket agent said, “There’s a war on, you know.”
Having heard all of this, General Roosevelt stepped up to the counter and said, “Give him my seat. I’ll take a later plane.”
