Jordan Emrick ash dive
Jordan's ash dive will be this Saturday, December 18th, at Skydive Elsinore. It was his request. His family will be here. The memorial is the day before, Friday, December 17th at the church on base at Camp Pendleton.
"Staff Sgt. Jordan B. Emrick, 26, of Hoyleton, Ill., died Nov. 5 while conducting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan."
Jordan was diffusing an IED. After successfully diffusing it, while walking away, he stepped on another one.
Let's show his family how much love we had for Jordan, how much respect we have for him, what he stood for and what he's done for us and our country, and show his family why he loved skydiving so much.
I'll be so glad when all our troops get to leave that hell hole. I didn't know Jordan, but he looks like an awesome guy. I work as a civilian for the Army, so I have seen several friends injured and killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
