The wife of a fallen Fort Bragg soldier was just six weeks pregnant when she found out she would never see her husband again. U.S. Army SPC Christopher “Chris” Harris, 25, was killed August 2, 2017 by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan. He was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 504th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, N.C.
His wife, Brittany “Britt” Harris, said her husband left her a “little miracle.” Brittany discovered the gender of her baby thanks to a little help:
Fort Bragg’s 82nd Airborne members deployed to Afghanistan revealed the baby’s gender in a truly special way. The soldiers recorded a special video for Brittany. They stood in front of the flag armed with confetti cannons and with a special announcement – she would be having their baby girl!
We honor you, Christopher Harris.
