As a crowded airliner was about to take off, the peace is shattered by a 5-year-old boy who picks that moment to throw a wild temper tantrum. No matter what his frustrated, embarrassed mother does to try to calm him down, the boy continues to scream furiously and kick the seats around him.

Stopping the flustered mother with an upraised hand, the white-haired, soft-spoken General leans down and motioning toward his chest, whispers something into the boys ear. Instantly, the boy calms down, gently takes his mothers hand and quietly fastens his seat belt.

"Excuse me, General," she asks quietly, "but could I ask you what magic words you used on that little boy?" The old man smiles serenely and gently confides, "I showed him my pilots wings, service stars and battle ribbons and explained that they entitle me to throw one passenger out the plane door on any flight I choose."
