Brooks couldn't agree more and hopes his family's story reminds others of what military parents give up.

The video of Brooks watching the delivery on FaceTime was recorded by another traveler at the hotel who explained that she wants to make sure people don't "forget about our soldiers who serve us every day and the sacrifices they make". "But all of it is worth it when you get to hold your loved ones at the end of it all".

On May 5, Tracy Dover posted a picture of an Army soldier in his camouflage uniform.

This Army soldier was on my delayed flight home yesterday to MS.

This image has been shared more than 100-thousand times on Facebook.

Despite the delay, Haley wrote in a blog post on Love What Matters that she was actually grateful the flight had been delayed. It had been viewed on Facebook almost 200,000 times. "We can not believe how far and wide this story has traveled!"

His mom, who was in the delivery room with his wife, started a FaceTime call.

"Brooks was telling me it was OK, and I was doing so good and I heard him wincing and saying 'wow!' through my pushes", Haley Lindsey said.

"I could hear people in the airport talking and cheering!"

His wife, Haley Lindsey, said her husband was about to board his flight when he told her he needed to get off the flight.
