A retired marine was treated to a first class seat when he boarded a plane on Monday, but all may not have been what it appeared.
Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams may be known for his charitable work for breast cancer efforts, but he also has a soft spot for the military.
Williams tweeted this photo:
I always give up my seat to military if my seat is better! I truly appreciate our troops #flyingtherightway pic.twitter.com/pptilEg6xi

Williams didn’t tell the man he had switched seats. “He just doesn’t know it yet but he will be sitting in this seat when he boards the plane I always give up my 1st class seat! #isalutethetroops!” Williams wrote on his Facebook page.
Twitter followers responded with these tweets:
@DeAngeloRB Classy move…huge respect to you both!! — Mike Thompson (@MikeThompsonOne) July 8, 2014
Very cool RT @DeAngeloRB: I always give up my seat to military if my seat is better! I truly appreciate our troops pic.twitter.com/YQlN9QOgHr — Kelli Bartik (@KelliBartik) July 7, 2014
But some Facebook and Twitter users questioned whether the man was really a Marine. Some Twitter users sent these tweets:
@DeAngeloRB Don’t give up your seat without asking a few basic questions, something fishy is up with him. — Justin (@jamos14) July 7, 2014
@KelliBartik @jamos14 @DeAngeloRB medals messed up, wearing shooting badge (shouldn’t be), and his cover on in doors.

@richlavjr he tweeted a pic of a guy he was giving a first class seat up to… Turns out the guy in uniform looks like a fake.. — Bobby Dell (@B_Dell81) July 7, 2014
Nevertheless, it always goes back to “it’s the thought that counts,” summed up in these tweets:
@DeAngeloRB But man, that’s still awesome you had that generosity. That was the right thing to do.
