Star Spangled Salute-A Veteran’s Training Keeps Him Focused During Attack

 

 

 

 

Today’s Star Spangled Salute honors Navy Veteran Larry Cumberbatch.  Larry joined the military over 2 decades ago and it was his training that helped in a recent dangerous situation on flight from Cincinnati.  Due to a mistake by a TSA agent, a man was able to bring 2 box cutters on a plane.  When a passenger noticed and alerted a flight attendant, Larry was then asked if he could assist.  Calmly, as the flight was diverted to Atlanta, he sat a couple rows away to keep an eye on the man.  After most passengers had gotten off, the man then lunged at a flight attendant, Larry was able to act quickly and take him down until the police arrived. Larry said, he never felt nervous or unprepared and he thanks his military training for that. Thank you Larry for acting and THANK YOU for your service.
