    A Journal for Jordan PDF » A Journal PDF/EPUB or journal book, jordan kindle, A Journal pdf, A Journal for Jordan KindleI borrowed this book from my older brother who received it from one of my Dad's coworkers at the New York Times Being a passionate about the military I wanted to get the perspective of a deceased soldier’s family A perspective I have neglected in my studies The Journal for Jordan delivers this First Sergeant King fits the description of a stereotypical exemplary soldier His extreme discipline strong sense of duty loyalty and honor are inspiring He is no doubt an American Hero But with this status comes hardship and sacrifice that define being a part of the military While reading the book I imagined what if I had to write a journal for my future child What would I write? It raised the question of what kind of person do you

    A Journal for Jordan PDF » A Journal PDF/EPUB or journal book, jordan kindle, A Journal pdf, A Journal for Jordan KindleThis is an amazing love story You know the tragic ending from the outset which makes reading about the incredible love that the author shared with Master Sargeant Charles King before he was killed in Iraq all the heart wrenching Ultimately though I was buoyed by Dana Canedy's amazing courage and by the knowledge that she has a beautiful baby boy to remind her of the love that she and Charles experienced for 10 unforgettable years As an editor for the NY Times Canedy definitely knows how to write Despite the heaviness of the story I found the book hard to put down and I read right through every page of notes and acknowledgements because I didn't want the book to end
