A Journal for Jordan

A Story of Love and Honor

Description

In 2005, First Sergeant Charles Monroe King began to write what would become a two-hundred-page journal for his son in case he did not make it home from the war in Iraq. Charles King, forty-eight, was killed on October 14, 2006, when an improvised explosive device detonated under his Humvee on an isolated road near Baghdad. His son, Jordan, was seven months old.

A father figure to the soldiers under his command, Charles moved naturally into writing to his son. He counseled him on everything from how to withstand disappointment and deal with adversaries to how to behave on a date. He finished the journal two months before his death while home on a two-week leave, so intoxicated with love for his infant son that he barely slept. This is also the story of Dana Canedy and Charles together–two seemingly mismatched souls who loved each other deeply. In this audiobook, we relive with Dana the slow unfolding of their love and the birth of their son.

A Journal for Jordan is a tender introduction, a loving good-bye, a reporter’s inquiry into her soldier’s life, and a heartrending reminder of the human cost of war.
