Am I out of line?
Bring this up with the Station Manager:
DoD Travel site link

Delta Airlines: Delta Airlines accepts a maximum of two checked baggage items, up to 50 pounds each and a maximum total linear dimension of 62 inches free of charge for each ticketed passenger. In addition, one carry-on bag, plus one personal item may be brought on board. Luggage weighing between 51 and 70 pounds will be charged an excess baggage fee of $25 per piece. Luggage weighing between 71 and 100 pounds will be charged an excess baggage fee of $80 per piece. Items over 100 pounds will not be accepted.

Delta Airlines has agreed to waive the weight limit and fees for military members, which include active duty, Guard, Reserve, and Coast Guard members, traveling on official orders. The waiver allows two checked pieces of military style luggage up to 70 pounds each. Military style luggage includes military issue duffel bags, B-4 bags, and Navy sea bags. All other bags will be subject to the current weight limits and fees. The military member must present his or her ID card and military orders upon request. This waiver does not apply to DoD civilians conducting official travel or military members and their families conducting leisure travel. Delta Airlines has posted waiver information on their reservation system under "G*853/36 with the military exceptions beginning on line 35.

If he was hauling his stuff in military style bags with orders, his limit was 70 lbs per bag. Every Delta TA/GA in cities with large military bases should be familiar with this. Most US domestic carriers have similar rules.
