AWM REPORTS: On her return flight to Atlanta, Diane Hollified Cupp experience something she will never forget until the day she dies – for the best reasons possible.

The Johnson City, Tennessee resident had been on vacation with her husband in Europe, touring the historic sites related to World War II. During one of the tours, the guide described how soldiers’ remains are found there all the time.

But on her return flight across the Atlantic, Cupp never expected to be honored by the presence of a war hero. When the flight from Germany landed in Atlanta, the captain announced that an Army private was onboard escorting the remains of a WWII soldier to his final resting place in Houston, Texas. And this person would get the privilege to get off the planet first.

As the Army Private proudly left the plane, the Iowa Ambassadors of Music Choir rose from their seats and began singing The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Not a more honorable departure could have been planned for the World War II hero and his Army private escort. And Cupp caught the awe-inspiring moment on camera…

When the video begins, you can hear the young high school performers singing:

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

They repeat the chorus of the famous Battle Hymn of the Republic several times with harmonic variations.

Cupp uploaded the video to her Facebook page and shared the following about the moment:

“On our flight from Germany there was an Army private in uniform that so happen to be escorting the remains of a WW11 Soldier back home to Houston. The pilot announced he would be exiting the plane first, as he got up to leave there were a group of young people who had been on tour in Europe all of a sudden they broke out singing Glory Hallelujah. Listen how beautiful!! Will bring a tear to your eye.”

If you watch carefully, you can see the choir director conducting the high school singers in the back of the plane. WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW – it starts at 0:25
