A typical delivery turned into a personal moment for one Michigan military family and an Amazon delivery driver.

Amanda LeCureaux of New Baltimore, Michigan says she received a notification on her phone from her smart doorbell about an incoming delivery on Dec. 12 and turned on the camera to see what was coming.

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

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

The reason for the salute? LeCureaux's husband serves in the Air National Guard and the family has an Air Force sign on the porch.

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

After witnessing the kind gesture, LeCureaux 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.
