Jesus, Pray for Noah
Noah enlisted in the Army in May 2003 as a military policeman. He deployed to Afghanistan this month after three deployments in Iraq from 2004 to 2007.

His awards and decorations include four Army Commendation medals, two Good Conduct medals, the Army Achievement medal, National Defense Service medal, Iraq Campaign medals with Campaign Star, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary medal and a Global War on Terrorism service medal.

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Noah Korte is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
