El Paso, Texas — A bittersweet Facebook post is going viral, and it's reminding all Americans about the sacrifices soldiers make in their daily lives.

On May 5, Tracy Dover posted a picture of an Army soldier in his camouflage uniform. The man was seated on the floor of the airport, glued to his cellphone.

In the post on Facebook, it says, "This Army soldier was on my delayed flight home yesterday to [Mississippi]. He had to watch the birth of his daughter on FaceTime. He was crying and our hearts were breaking. We all gave him space. When we heard the baby cry, we all rejoiced for him. I wanted to share this because I never want us to forget about our soldiers who serve us every day and the sacrifices they make."

The image has been shared more than 100,000 times.
