Here is a story that will melt your heart. A group of people were asked to wait to let someone off of the plane first on an airplane arrival to the Raleigh-Durham Airport. But the reason why she had to wait will have you in tears. And it is no doubt why she probably did not mind the wait at all.
Outside the airplane windows were numerous soldiers unloading a flag laden coffin from the cargo section of the airplane that held all the luggage. Everyone remained in complete silence.
A woman and other family members laid their hands on and cried on top of the casket of a fallen soldier who presumably was their family. Seven Green Beret soldiers carried the casket off the tarmac and were dressed in full uniform.
The pilot thanked everyone for patiently waiting. Fortunately, one woman shared the entire thing on social media. She described how their was not one dry eye in the entire plane. Now the episode is moving thousands upon thousands of others watching it online.
The video made its way to T.J. Thomas after it was shared tens of thousands of times. The woman crying in the video reached out to the woman who recorded it to thank her for spreading such a wonderful message. The woman was saying her final goodbyes to her beloved husband Shawn.
He was formerly a member of the U.S. Army and he was stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. His wife is now raising their four children alone. He was buried this week in Arlington National Cemetery.
While it is certainly sad that he has passed it is so amazing that everyone gets to partake in sharing this touching moment. It just goes to show the love Americans have in their heart for those who have sacrificed it all for our country. If it were not for them we would not be where we are.
