HAMPSTEAD, NC (WWAY) — On Veterans Day you usually see red, white and blue, but one military widow here in the Cape Fear only saw pink, and it was all caught on camera.

Cassie Lohrey hosted her baby’s gender reveal Saturday surrounded by a group of Marine and Navy Corpsmen who served with her late husband, Ryan Lohrey.

He died in a military plane crash in Mississippi in July.

A few weeks after his death, Lohrey found out she was pregnant.

She said she is naming her baby girl Ryan Jo Lohrey, her husband’s first name and her middle name.

The baby is due in March.
