A woman who lost her husband during a military training operation had a very special baby gender reveal planned for Veterans Day.

According to SaralynJ Photography's Facebook page, Cassie Lohrey and Hospital Corpsman 1st class Ryan Lohrey were newlyweds when Ryan died in a July 10 plane crash.

The U.S. military plane used for refueling crashed into a soybean field in rural Mississippi, killing more than a dozen people aboard in a fiery wreck and spreading debris for miles, officials told the Associated Press.

Three weeks after the tragedy, Cassie reportedly found out she was pregnant. So, she planned a special baby gender reveal with some of her husband's friends.

Saralyn Johnson Photography posted that 16 servicemen attended to help her with the announcement.
