Army Sgt. Sean C. Reynolds

Died May 3, 2003 Serving During Operation Iraqi Freedom

25, of East Lansing, Mich.; assigned to 74th Long-Range Surveillance Detachment 173rd Airborne Brigade, Camp Ederle, Italy; killed in Iraq when his M-4 rifle accidentally discharged after he fell off a ladder he had been climbing.

Sean C. Reynolds enlisted in the Army at age 17, right after graduating from East Lansing High School. He served in the Army Rangers, one of the military’s elite units, and saw his work as a way to help people in need, said his older brother, Kevin.

Reynolds died of a gunshot wound May 3 when he fell off a ladder and his rifle went off, shooting him in the head.

“He wanted to fight for people’s justices — no matter who they were,” Kevin Reynolds said. “He said, ‘You may not agree with me politically, but give me a chance.’ ”
