Mr. S. talked to someone who could contact the pilot. U.S. Air Force Major Grant Thompson returned the jet to the base. He thanked Mr. S. with a cap, insignia, and the patch ripped from his shirt’s shoulder. Many other people thanked Mr. S. on Facebook. It is good to thank people for their help. Do you remember also to thank God? “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
