A heartbreaking scene was captured on video by a plane passenger at Raleigh-Durham International Airport of a widow laying on the casket of her fallen husband who was a Green Beret.

Warrant Officer 1 Shawn Thomas, 35, was killed in a non-combat vehicle crash in Africa.

Lisa West Williams captured the moment on Facebook and her video has been viewed more than 6 million times since it was posted.

"It was an honor to fly home with this PATRIOT! There was not a dry eye around me," Williams wrote in her post accompanying the video.

Thomas is survived by his wife and four children.
