Death and grief take no holidays. Neither do broken hearts and the family of Alvin resident Sgt. James Michael Nolen knows that better than most people. Nolen, age 25, was killed in Zabul province, Afghanistan on Sunday, Nov. 22. Nolen sustained fatal wounds when enemy forces attacked his vehicle with an improvised explosive device. Nolen served with the 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He began his second deployment to Afghanistan approximately four months ago. He previously served there for 15 months prior to returning to the states for about a year. He was a graduate of Bay Area Christian School. Nolen's mother, Kim Roberts lives in the Alvin/Liverpool area. Roberts previously worked as a Liverpool Volunteer Firefighter. His father, Scott Nolen lives in Heber City, Utah. His grandparents are Bill and Doris Nolen of El Campo. His wife, Rachel, is four months pregnant, and he was step-father to William.

The military flew Nolen's wife and parents to Dover Air Force Base on Tuesday, Nov. 24.

To Honor Him.
The body of James Nolen will arrive at Ellington AFB at 3:30 on Wednesday afternoon. It will be immediately transported to Scott Funeral Home in Alvin. PLEASE if possible, SUPPORT AND HONOR an American Heros final homecoming by lining Hwy 35 anywhere between 528 and Hwy 6.
