This is such a strong book, filled with compassion and sorrow and so much love and respect felt and expressed by one man that has made a very long and deep journey and is still struggling back to Himself. It was an honor to share these experiences with Sergeant Jordan and I am left wanting more. Thank you for the service to our Country, the Fallen and their Families!!!
