Capt. Dustin R. Lukasiewicz’s wife, Ashley, gave birth earlier this week to their son. She was pregnant when the 29-year-old from Wilcox, Nebraska, deployed to Nepal to deliver supplies after a major earthquake.

Lukasiewicz and five other Marines died May 12th when their helicopter crashed. Two Nepalese solders were also killed in the crash.

Dustin Lukasiewicz’s father, Keith, says the family brought the boy home from the hospital on Thursday.

Lukasiewicz and his wife also have a daughter, Isabelle.
