Vets considering boycott of Spirit Airlines after dying ex-Marine denied refund
Veterans groups around the nation are rallying to the side of dying Vietnam veteran and ex-Marine Jerry Meekins, 76, of Clearwater, Fla., following the airline's refusal to refund him $197. Spirit Airlines is finding out that if you take on one old soldier, you can end up facing an army.

This is pure grand standing, why would a vet expect special treatment or to got to the head of the line? Spirit Airlines provides cheap air fares, no promises to hold your hand. I'm a Viet nam era vet, I would never expect to use this fact as a geat out of jail free card. Semper Fi and such it up!
