Jiennah Crayton, the widow of a US marine killed during the Afghanistan evacuations, gave birth to a baby girl. The US marine, Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum was among the 13 US soldiers who died in the suicide bombing on August 26th in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Early Monday morning, Levi Rylee Rose McCollum was born at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California.

According to Crayton’s Monday evening post, Levi Rylee was born in a “lightning quick” delivery and doing well.

Moreover, several online fundraising efforts have raised nearly $1 million for McCollum’s family and baby’s education.

McCollum grew up in Wyoming’s Jackson Hole area. Family members said he played with toy rifles as a toddler and found becoming a solider fascinating.

In high school, he was a wrestler known for working hard, way before Marine training.

Last Friday, when McCollum’s remains returned home from Afghanistan, hundreds of people lined the streets in Jackson, Wyoming. The local police department saluted as the hearse passed.

On his first deployment, McCollum died helping those in need.
