A Georgia physician who was told to not sing the National Anthem on-board a Delta Airlines flight that was transporting a fallen soldier has spoken out on not having the courage enough to sing the National Anthem when a flight attendant told her should couldn’t.
Dr. Pamela Gaudry was on her way from Philadelphia to Atlanta and the Delta flight attendant told her not to sing the national anthem because it was against company policy.
She took to Facebook to say that she was mad at herself that she wasn’t courageous enough to sing the national anthem when passengers on her Delta flight learned there was a fallen soldier on-board being escorted home.
Gaudry was on her way from Philadelphia to Atlanta and the Delta flight attendant told her not to sing the national anthem because it was against company policy.
“I’m humiliated by my lack of courage to sing the national anthem in my own country on American soil… with a deceased soldier on the plane,” Gaudry said.
She and others wanted to honor Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright while his body was unloaded from the flight. But the flight attendant told her she had to be quiet.
“She did not tell the rest of the plane that singing the national anthem for this soldier was against company policy… she told me that several of the people on the plane were from other countries and that they were uncomfortable with us singing the national anthem,” she said.
The slain serviceman, Green Beret Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright of Lyons, Georgia, was laid to rest in his hometown funeral ceremony on 16 October, 2017.
Prior to Gaudry’s incident, Delta and other airlines have had their share of controversial passenger incidents since January 2017 from Dr. David Dao who was seated on a United fight in Chicago bound for Louisville on April 9 when he was asked to give up his seat on an overbooked flight to make room for crew members to a family of five said they were unfairly kicked off of a JetBlue flight on July 2 after a confrontation with an airline employee.
