Raul Guerra

Staff Sgt. Raul M. Guerra, age 37, of Union City, New Jersey, died on July 4, 2012, in Spin Boldak, Afghanistan.

Raul Guerra was assigned to the 502nd Military Intelligence Battalion, 201st Battlefield Surveillance Brigade, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington.

There is little, if any, data provided in the media about Raul.  

Angels of God, pray for Raul. 
He enlisted in 1999 and initially trained as a mechanic. He deployed to Afghanistan three times with a unit from Fort Bragg, N.C. between 2002 and 2006.  In 2007, Raul Guerra changed specialties in the Army and became a human intelligence collector. He deployed to Iraq from October 2007 to December 2008 with his unit from Fort Stewart, Georgia.  Raul Guerra was assigned to Lewis-McChord in July 2011. He deployed with his current unit in May of 2012.

Raul is survived by many loving friends and relatives.

God help us all.  How many times can one man be deployed to war torn areas and be put in the line of fire?  Apparently, the answer is 5 times until death. 

Jesus, Mary and all saints and all angels pray for Raul. 

Let us pray that Raul Guerra is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
