    A military wife captured mourning her fallen Green Beret husband in a video that has gone viral is being hailed as a “patriot” by those who witnessed the heartbreaking event.

    Lisa Williams, whose flight arrived at the Raleigh-Durham Airport in North Carolina Tuesday, said passengers were asked to stay in their seats so they could let someone off the aircraft first, WPVI reported.

    Soldiers unloaded a flag-draped coffin from the plane’s cargo area and then T.J. Thomas, the wife of Officer Shawn Thomas, stepped off the plane to grieve the loss of her husband.

    “It was an honor to fly home with this PATRIOT! God bless his wife and family. There was not a dry eye around me,” Lisa Williams wrote on a Facebook post. She said the plane remained silent as passengers started to cry.

    Seven Green Beret soldiers later loaded the coffin into a black hearse and paid their respects, while the pilot thanked passengers for waiting.

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    Beautiful yet heartbreaking video. God Bless the fallen Soldier, his family and the young lady who took it. Also, kudos to the airline and the passengers for being so respectful.
