I stretched out on my bed to read a chapter. A single chapter to relax and help to sleep. I then realize i've read six chapters and wanting to read more. Wanting to give Justin a hug and support. Wishing I had more tissues to dry my tears. I'm so surprised by the detail he gives in telling his story it puts you right there beside him and almost gives you that I want to run away feeling, but you can't your bound by the same responsibility Justin has. You can't run and hide cause you to have that ...more

Reading this book is like sitting down with a friend and having one of those conversations that stays with you forever. Jordan takes the reader into his world and offers a view that most could never conceive of. This book will open your eyes and your heart to the sacrifices of our military. As a military parent and the spouse of a veteran I found Jordan's writing to be heartfelt and spot on.

This book had such potential, but seemed to fall short. The stories were captivating, but the writing felt rushed and the relationships undeveloped. Many times I was distracted from the vivid scenes the author had created because of poor grammar.

Read it in a few hours. Thankful that my AF specialty spared me from dealing with any of the things MSgt Jordan had to deal with. I got choked up every few pages. I'll have to thank his father-in-law for recommending the book.

Apparently, some people (not me) are traumatized by seeing dead bodies. I don't particularly care to speculate about what this means or doesn't mean about either myself or this author.
