Sunday Salute: Jacob Schmuecker

Posted: Updated:
 For this week's Sunday Salute we honor Sergeant Jacob Schmuecker of Norfolk.

Jacob joined the Nebraska Army National Guard in January 2001. It was his lifelong dream to become a soldier and serve his country.

He graduated from West Holt High School in Atkinson in 1999.

On July 21, 2007, Jacob was killed by a roadside bomb while serving in Iraq at the age of 27.

He loved being a soldier and he loved serving his country. He is always remembered and greatly missed by all of his family and friends.

He was nominated to be this week's Sunday Salute by his parents, Rod and Patty.

Jacob, we thank you for your service to our country.
