A Request For An Injured Hero

One of the blog friends
I have made is
named Marcia.
Her blog is called
There is nothing
simple about Marcia.
She is a lovely
person, sweet,
giving,
and
deeply loving.

She has asked a favor.
Her nephew,
Jordan, was
injured in the line
of duty in
Afhganistan.
They really did not
expect him to survive.
But this man is a fighter..
and he is fighting his way
back for his wife
and son and family.
You can read about him

He has a birthday
this week and
I would love it
if anyone that
could would send him
a card...a card of
thanksgiving for his
life and for all he has
done for all of us..
that he has
survived and will
be here for his
birthday.

Here is his address..
No last name needed.
Jordan
NNMC
8901 Wisconsin Avenue
Building 10 Ward 5 E
Room #17
Bethesda, Md.  20889


If you have a moment,
If you have a card,
If you have a stamp,
If you have a son,
If you have a heart,
please send Jordan
a birthday card.
You'll be glad you did!
(and don't forget to
say a prayer for him
and his family)

I'm babysitting today and I know I don't have a card - but maybe I could get Grace to make one. Aren't kid-made cards the greatest, anyway? And she loves Birthdays, so I'll try!

Diana, thank you so much for sharing Jordan's info. He's such a hero in our family, and we're so blessed by the way the blogging community has embraced him. You are such a sweetie!

My card went out with todays mail. I used a blank card, so I could write my own message.
Thanks for posting this. I'm going to ask grandson to see if his teachers will allow them to do a card as a class, and mail it.

Hi Diana,
I'm so glad I came by or I wouldn't have know about Jordan. We have 3 nephews in Afganastan right now. I want them home so bad. All of our soldiers are heros to me, as they should be to everyone in our nation. My prayers are with Jordan and I'll spread the word.
On another note... I'm a terrible blogger. I'm sooooooooo busy sewing and the bloggers out there are so amazing. I wish I could be half of what they are.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. And each time you do.
