Today’s Star Spangled Salute honors Marine Veteran Yaheem Jones and his amazing luck.  Yaheem was in Denver, visiting from North Carolina.  On the day he traveled back to his home state he had a bag and in the bottom of that bag was his flight pass, itinerary, checked bag passes and some scratch tickets.  Jones had bought the tickets in a supermarket in North Carolina before leaving for Colorado.  So, Yaheem began scratching the tickets.  At first he thought it was a joke, but it wasn’t, one of the tickets was a One Million Dollar winner.  He said the flight back to North Carolina was nerve wracking and he never took his hand out of his pocket.  Congratulations Yaheem and THANK YOU for your service.
