The third American killed in the Brussels terror attacks has been identified as the wife of a U.S. Air Force officer who is stationed in Europe.

Texas Congressman Blake Farenthold confirmed that one of the U.S fatalities in Brussels was 41-year-old Corpus Christi native Gail Minglana Martinez, wife of Lt. Col. Kato Martinez, an Air Force officer based at the NATO office Joint Base in Brunssum, the Netherlands. He and their four children remained hospitalized from their injuries.

The family was at the Brussels airport preparing to get on a flight to the U.S. when the bombings took place, a military official said on the day of the attacks.

Farenthold offered his condolences to Martinez’s family, saying her life was “tragically cut short.”
