 AFGHANISTAN WAR REPORTS
Fort Eustis Soldier Is Laid To Rest
August 08, 2013 by Hugh Lessig, Daily Press
 
 YORK — Caryn Reynal Nouv didn't always have it easy, but she was remembered Thursday as someone who overcame challenges, sought direction in military service anddied doing a job she loved.Like thousands of young men and women, Nouv sought purpose and stability in her lifethrough the Army. She landed at Fort Eustis in Newport News, near where she wasraised by loving adoptive parents.Deployed to Afghanistan with the 359th Transportation Company, Nouv seemed to befinding her way when her life was tragically cut short. Nouv was killed July 27 when hervehicle was attacked by an improvised explosive device and small arms fire in Ghanziprovince. Another Fort Eustis soldier, Sgt. Eric T. Lawson of Stockbridge, Ga., was alsokilled.Nouv, a specialist who was posthumously promoted to sergeant, leaves behind ahusband and two children, a 10-year-old daughter and a 9-year-old son. Nouv wouldhave celebrated her 30th birthday on Friday.Hundreds of friends and family gathered Thursday at Bethel Baptist Church in YorkCounty to remember Nouv not only as a good soldier, but as someone who worked toovercome the hurdles put in her path.Nouv came from a broken home and was initially placed in foster care. Then she cameto the Rev. John Ward, pastor of a church in Greenville, in western Virginia. Nouv was atoddler when she showed up at the Ward home, and he became emotional as herecalled that moment."There on my front porch, I first saw Caryn," he said. "She stood there with a socialworker and she had a small paper grocery bag in her hand with all of her worldlypossessions. The last time I saw Caryn was last night. She was decorated with medals,surrounded by a loving but grieving family ... a far cry from the little girl who stood on ourfront porch with a grocery bag."After a couple of years, Caryn moved from the Ward home in Greenville to the home of Richard and Judy Reynal in Yorktown, who became her adoptive parents. Then another pastor came into her life. The Rev. James White of First Baptist inNewport News remembered her as "a beautiful little 5- or 6-year-old with curly blondetresses and a smile that made you want to hug her."But because she came from a broken home, "she was wounded long before she beganserving in Afghanistan," White said.And Caryn also trusted in the church early in life, and "nothing would ever change thelove the parents had for their daughter, not the commitment they had to her," White said.Referring to what he said was a "wild streak," he prompted a smattering of laughter inthe church when he said, "Caryn brought joy and vitality — much vitality — into theirhome."
 
 The deaths of Nouv and Lawson were part of a heartbreaking stretch for the 359th,which deployed to Afghanistan in January.
The company, which has taken on the hazardous job of providing security for convoys, has lost three soldiers in 40 days.
Sgt. Justin R. Johnson was killed June 18 by indirect fire at Bagram Air Base, then camethe deaths of Nouv and Lawson on July 27. Prior to this, the last combat-related deathsof Fort Eustis-based soldiers were in 2008 in Iraq.Doug Echols, senior pastor at Bethel Baptist, called on the mourners to not let Caryn'sdeath be in vain, but to cherish the freedom for which she fought. "Every time you hearthe national anthem being played at a football game or baseball game, stand there, stareat that flag and remember Caryn," he said.White said there were "positive signs" that military service was helping her find direction.She would have come home with the 359th this fall."Now, with wounds healed and her spirit settled," White said, "she has found that forwhich her soul longed all along, in the safety and security of her savior's embrace."
