The stranger, named Josh Rainey, offered Keaton his ticket but due to airplane policy, transferring tickets was not allowed. And that is when Rainey decided that he would purchase a plane ticket for Keaton, which cost him $350. Because of this, Keaton was able to go home to see his family that he was missing sorely.
Josh said that purchasing the ticket held no flame to the service that Keaton provides for their country. The two men then hugged while tears streamed down their face. “We shook hands at first and then he walked away, and then he came back and asked if he could hug me, and I think we both had to fight back the tears after that,” said Josh.
