Noah grew up in Midfield, Ala., just outside of Birmingham. They show Noah's prom picture and he's got some regrettable bangs. He decided to join the military, like so many men and women did, after witnessing the events of Sept. 11, 2001. The attack that took his left arm and leg occurred in 2005, and he went through several years of depression during his recovery. Later he turned his life around and became a fitness model and motivational speaker.
