The wounds of war can be both internal and external. For Jordan Dunn it seemed he would have to overcome both. Just as Jordan begins to cope with the loss of his greatest love, Rose, he is shipped off to war in the mountains of Afghanistan, where he is left having to face real life nightmares day in and day out. When his convoy is struck by an IED the battle to survive becomes his biggest challenge. The question is, does he have the strength and the will to fight for his life?
Every second of my life flashed before my eyes as I felt the pieces slice through me. My body feeling like it was on fire as the pain radiated through me. My beautiful girl that I would never see again, the one I never was able to tell exactly how much she meant to me.
As the corpsman ran up beside me and evaluated my injuries, the grim look on his face said it all. Told me my wife would get a knock at the door from men in the navy dress uniform. That she'd have to sit at Arlington and be terrified as twenty-one shots were fired. The eerie and somber sound of Taps being played from the bugle would pierce her ears and burn into her memory.
"Lieutenant!" The corpsman yelled as my eyes fought to close. My body begging me to surrender to the pain. My last act on this earth was to reach into my pocket and pull out a letter, to ensure somebody saw it and made sure she got it.
"Just hang on," he said as his hand grasped the blood stained paper.
