A short-but-sweet video here from one of our nation’s finest. U.S. Marine Matt Bussen was on board a flight heading home from his training in Alabama, and he decided to do a little something special to express to his fellow passengers what it meant to be returning home.
Matt hopped on the plane’s intercom, at which point he announced that he wanted to sing a short song. At first, the passengers didn’t quite know what to make of it. Some of them even seemed slightly rude, shouting out requests like “Freebird!” and “Wonderwall!” But before long, they were all nearly speechless.
It only took a few moments into Bussen’s rendition of Michael Bublé’s “Home” for one to be able to hear a pin drop, and you can tell that the song means a lot to him. By the time it was over, the entire plane erupted in cheers and applause.
Not bad at all, especially considering that Matt was singing through an intercom!
Ironically, this marine should be receiving gifts for his service, and yet, he’d rather continue giving gifts like this to others. What an American.
Welcome home, Matt Bussen.
