“A true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”
Generally, people feel that security forces do not always get the honor and respect they deserve. Very recently, the nation got to know how the bodies of seven soldiers who lost their lives in a helicopter crash in Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh were wrapped in plastic sacks and tied up in cardboard.
But the ordinary citizens of the country has no dearth of respect for our soldiers and it is proved in the video below. In a rare and heart-rending event, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were welcomed by a thunderous applause from the waiting crowd at the Jammu Airport.
It happened when the CRPF personnel entered the terminal building of the Jammu Airport on October 8 and were welcomed in an unexpected way by the people present in the area. People spontaneously got up from their seats and began clapping for the jawans.
The passengers waiting to board their respective flights also gave them a standing ovation, expressing their gratitude and honoring them for fighting selflessly for the nation.
The felicitation continued till the last man left the terminal building for the aircraft. It was a very warm gesture by the public towards the uniform which encourages the Force personnel to serve the motherland with utmost zeal and devotion.

“The entire force is overwhelmed with the gesture shown by the passengers at the Jammu Airport. It motivates the force, which is committed to the service of the nation. This is all because of the way our force has been doing its service and also the sacrifices we have made,” DG CRPF Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar told.
It might have been just the CRPF personnel but the applause and the respect were to all the soldiers of the country who sacrifice their leisure and also their lives to serve us.
