We salute Jack Noble!

Noble was a sergeant in the Army during the Korean War and was stationed in Japan and Korea. Later he was very active in Cub Scouts, serving as a leader for about 20 years.

Noble was nominated by his granddaughter, Bethany, who says he was an amazing man who "had been through so much in his life that I couldn't even imagine going through."

"Growing up he was there for me as much as he was allowed to be and he helped raise me to be the woman I am today," Bethany writes. "My papa is the strongest man I've ever known!"

Noble recently passed away after battling cancer.
