For few, Iraq war has changed everything…a story filed by the AP which actually manages NOT to treat the heroes who sacrificed all as victims.

Amanda Jordan, whose Marine husband was killed three days into the war, says she doesn’t know what bothers her more _ the days that go by when no one speaks of the war, or the punditry. At a local diner she frequents with her 11-year-old son near their home in Enfield, Conn., she’s contemplated standing up and leaving so he doesn’t hear when people say Iraq was unnecessarily invaded.

“This is like my life. You’re saying my spouse, my child’s father, is dead for no reason,” says Jordan, a 39-year-old former paralegal who is studying to be a therapist specializing in grief. “That’s a pretty harsh thing to hear all the time.”

….

Thank you, Mrs. Jordan.  Your husband is a hero, and he did not die in vain.
