Many years later while eating at a restaurant, Captain Charlie was approached by a man with a serious look on his face I know you! You are Captain Plumb! You got shot down in 1967 and spent six years in a Vietnam prison.

Slide 8:

Captain Charlie was surprised and wondered how the man knew him I packed your parachute. I see that it worked, have a good day… Then the man walked off

Slide 9:

Captain Charlie started thinking, I probably p assed this man so many times back then, and I never said, “hey, thank you for the work you are doing” But because he did his job well, my life was saved

Slide 10:

Those parachute riggers were just working and probably never heard thank you from the pilots who depended on those parachutes to open right

Slide 11:

You know, often kids are that way… Their Mom works to take care of them and they seldom thank Mom for her important work So remember to thank Mom for her good job!
