A typical delivery turned into a moment a little more personal for one Michigan family.

Amanda LeCureaux of New Baltimore says she received a Ring notification on her phone of an incoming delivery on Dec. 12 and just popped it open to see what was coming.

“I started to play it…and it showed him saluting, and I was like, ‘oh my gosh,’” said Amanda.

The Amazon delivery driver dropped off a package, stepped back from the porch and saluted the house before leaving.

The reason for the salute? Amanda’s husband serves in the Air National Guard and they have an Air Force sign on the porch.

“He was very honored they would do something like that,” Amanda said of her husband who has served in the Air National Guard for more than 13 years.

After witnessing the kind gesture, Amanda said she tried to catch the delivery driver, but he was already gone.

“My husband and I thought with all the negative stuff going on in the world…that was really sweet,” she said.
