The born-to-be soldier was a mile-a-minute talker with incredible intelligence and an intense caring for others. Steven Reynolds was a man on a mission, whether it was at home or overseas.
Staff Sergeant Steven C. Reynolds was remembered as an admirable, multifaceted man by his family, his high school classmates, his teachers, his Boy Scout leaders and U.S. Army buddies. A borderline genius, Reynolds had a widespread interest in philosophy, politics, history and film.
Reynolds was assigned to the 170th Military Police Company, 504th Military Police Battalion, 42nd Military Police Brigade, which is based in Fort Lewis, Washington. He served in Germany in the 272nd company for three years.
He was a soldier because he wanted to protect the society he believed in. He was not a self-righteous kind of soldier, but a conscience kind of righteousness.
Reynolds always had a smile on his face, an incessant energy and never stopped talking. He died doing what he loved doing. Staff Sergeant Steven C. Reynolds was awarded the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart.
