A fallen soldier comes home and the emotional moment his wife put her hand on his coffin

Lisa West Williams was on a flight home with Shawn Thomas. Passengers were asked to wait as the Green Beret’s flag-draped coffin was taken out of the airplane at Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Williams caught the rest on video including Thomas’ widow in an emotional moment.

Williams posted the video on her Facebook page “It was an honor to fly home with this PATRIOT! God bless his wife and family. There was not a dry eye around me.”

Thank you to all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom, and their families too. You can’t help but cry for this woman and her family.
