Corp Carrie Lee French
Birth: Feb. 28, 1986
Caldwell
Canyon County
Idaho, USA
Death: Jun. 5, 2005, Iraq

Cpl. Carrie L. French of Caldwell, Idaho was a fun-loving young woman with a warm heart and a desire to serve and a gallant and heroic young woman and will always be remembered for her love of country and state and for her unwavering commitment to those principles that have preserved for all of us those freedoms we so cherish. She loved the outdoors and hoped to attend college and law school after her tour of duty. She served as an ammunition specialist. For her high school graduation gift she asked her father to take her skydiving. Carrie joined the Idaho National Guard to help pay for college and she was nervous about going to Iraq but proud to serve. She was baptized as a Christian in Iraq to the staccato sound of small-arms fire. Carrie was a 2004 Caldwell High School graduate who enjoyed sports and was on the cheerleading Squad. She is survived by her father Rick French; mother and stepfather Paula & Doug Hylinski; grandparents Ralph & Lida Little and Richard & Betty French; sisters Mikala Hylinski & Sara Gillman. She was preceded in death by her brother Jason Stockton. This is Idaho's first fatality of a female soldier in Operation Iraqi Freedom. She was awarded at least nine medals, including the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. She was 19.
