American Airlines flight attendant Teri Truss, who described the interaction on Twitter with a picture with Kane, said he approached her before takeoff to offer to switch seats with the military member.

"He said 'there's a soldier on this flight,'" Truss told WBBM in Chicago. "He said 'I would like for him to sit up front, and I would like to give him my first-class seat, and I'll go to the back.' "

Truss told the Chicago radio station the serviceman appreciated the gesture and went back to personally thank Kane during the flight.
