Chris and Britt Harris were married for less than a year when Chris was killed by an improvised explosive device. One week before his death, he found out he was going to be a dad, ABC News reported.
Chris, who was an only child, considered the members of the 2nd Battalion, 504th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82 Airborne Division, not just fellow soldiers, but also his brothers.
One of the servicemen, Joel Crunk, posted, “Chris Harris laid down his life for our country. His newly wed wife was expecting their first child. The reveal is in Afghanistan with the men who fought by his side. We are happy to welcome the new member of our company.”
