Memorial Day 2012

My daughter Jessica volunteered to serve in the Marine Corps' first officially declared Mortuary Affairs unit in Iraq. She has written a book describing the job she did with her platoon recovering and processing the remains of fallen soldiers. Please check out "Shade It Black-Death and After in Iraq" by Jess Goodell with John Hearn. Jessica has had many worldwide interviews with the media including Chris Hedges, BBC World, Russia TV, Spain, Ireland, Argentina, The Bob Edwards Show, Channel 4 News, among many others. She even has a song by George Hartner that you can hear on her website She is now working towards her PhD in Counseling Psycology. I'm very proud of my daughter and the difficulties she has overcome and continues to deal with. I love you Jessica!
