PFC Jason Nathaniel Lynch
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 10, 1983
Death: Jun. 18, 2004, Iraq

Pfc. Lynch grew up in the Virgin Islands. He was soft-spoken and loved the laid back sounds of Reggae music and the sport of cricket. But he always dreamed of being a soldier. He worked out tirelessly in preparation for basic training and even bought a pellet gun for target practice, said his 14-year-old brother, Jamil. "Jason always wanted to go into the Army. He wanted to fight. He didn't want to be behind a desk," said his girlfriend Elizabeth Castro, 18, who resisted Lynch's entreaties for her to join the Army, too. Lynch, of St. Croix, Virgin Islands, died June 18 in an attack in Buhriz, Iraq. He was stationed in Bamberg, Germany. Lynch turned 21 in Iraq, where he took his assignment in stride, regularly sending letters to his mother, Paula Lynch, and video games home to Jamil. The last such bundle arrived a few days after his death. "He was never a child to worry about anything. I was always the one who worried," said his mother. He was 21.

Lynch was born on 10 April 1983 in Christiansted, Saint Croix, the US Virgin Islands. He lived there for 20 years with the person he admired and respected more than any other, his mother. He desired to get off the Island and see the world. In the summer of 2003 he enlisted in the United States Army as a 13B. He arrived to us in Bamberg Germany in December of the same year and was immediately assigned to the Third Platoon, Charlie Battery who by this time was reorganized as a maneuver company in Task Force 1-6. During his short time in Germany, Jason spent many long hours training under the watchful eye of his squad leader and platoon sergeant in preparation for the deployment to Iraq. His short term goals were very clear. He would achieve the highest rank possible during his tour in the military, continue his education and earn a college degree. Jason was an embodiment of consideration for others and respect for his fellow man. This he manifested daily in his actions. He was persistent, humble, jovial and above all else, selfless.
