    Family Tradition

    No matter what it is I have chosen to do in life, I know that my ancestors would be proud of me just as I am proud of the service they gave our country. Whether it was the American Revolution, Civil War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Korea, or the current war in Iraq and Afghanistan, my ancestors and current family members have fought for something they believed was worth fighting for. Therefore, the military men in my family have taught me to stand up for the things I feel most passionate about and to not let the small things bother me too much.

    Thank you to all the military veterans in my family- Uncle Ricky Jordan, Uncle Billy Jordan, Uncle Charlie Jordan, Dave Jordan, Captain Charles Jordan, Uncle Ric Hagerstrand, Eb Warner, Ben Warner, and the many men who have gone to their eternal home. May the family tradition continue always- and God Bless America!
