Sgt. James M. Nolen
November 22, 2009
25 years old, of Alvin, Texas; assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute
Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division,
Fort Benning, Ga.; died Nov. 22 in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, of
wounds sustained when enemy forces attacked his vehicle with an
improvised explosive device. Also killed was Pfc. Marcus A.
James M. Nolen had a bit of tunnel vision when it came to being an infantryman.
It was “all he ever wanted to do,” said his wife, Rachel Anne Nolen.
He also was dedicated to his family and, even overseas, was preparing
for another big task: playing the proud papa to a new baby. He
anticipated the weekly pregnancy update e-mails from his wife, who let
him listen to the infant’s heartbeat when they talked on the phone.
But the 25-year-old dad-to-be from Alvin, Texas, died of wounds from a
roadside bomb in Zabul province, Afghanistan, on Nov. 22, less than
two weeks shy of his first wedding anniversary. He had deployed in
late summer for his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, hoping he’d
return after only a year this time.
He was assigned to Fort Bragg, N.C., where fellow paratroopers said
they would remember him as a “true soldier.”
“Nothing could take away from his warm personality,” they said in a
statement. “His caring smile and willingness to help others were his
most identifiable features.”
Nolen had attended Bay Area Christian School and joined the Army in 2005.
Survivors include his parents, wife Rachel and children Jamie and William.
