The Soldier and the Seat

My husband I had to travel to Netanya yesterday by train. When we boarded, we discovered that all the seats were full. This is not surprising, because many soldiers return home on Thursday for the weekend. Fearing that my husband could fall, I called out: “Can someone give my husband a seat so that he won’t fall?” Someone did, and the soldier sitting opposite from him offered me his seat. I almost refused, but I could see on his face that he really expected me to sit. I smiled and said: “My son is also a soldier. He also would have gotten up. Thank you!”
