Soldiers’ sacrifices for people is truly unmeasurable and, unfortunately, we tend to forget it or take it for granted. They keep our peace by laying their lives on the line, risking everything for the sake of the motherland.

It was posted by Tracy Dover, the airport worker, who witnessed an emotional and heart-wrenching scene. The soldier was coming back home, but due to a cancelled flight he had to stay in the airport and watch his wife giving birth over the FaceTime.

The unlucky turn of events prevented the man from being with his family at that most important moment in their lives.

Dover wrote:

“He was crying and our hearts were breaking. We all gave him space. When we heard the baby cry, we all rejoiced for him.”

That is beautiful and sad at the same time! The viral post made it possible to discover what happened next to the soldier.

His name is Brooks Lindsey and he got home safely and reunited with his wife and met his newborn daughter.

"The 2d Battalion, 114th Field Artillery Regiment Posted this picture. This is the soldier who was at the airport. They wrote: Join us in welcoming Millie Fritz Anne Lindsey to the Dragon Battalion Family."
