Overview Wartime communication is poignant and stirring in a way nothing else can possibly be.

(Practical Life)
Publishers Description Wartime communication is poignant and stirring in a way nothing else can possibly be. What seems to be missing in most eyewitness accounts are responses from the recipients. When those recipients are a Christian family, there is an emotional and spiritual battle that transcends mere historical significance. Told as if sharing with friends, Ordinary Patriot is more than a simple memoir. It is a chronicle with flesh on it, a wartime "coming of age" told through letters, phone calls and emails from the front lines and the reactions of those back home. Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom can at last be observed from a different perspective, sans bias and politics. Simply put, it is the musings of a young American Christian, with a bit of humor and a lot of determination to survive, to return to the life and country he was treasuring for the first time. Carol J. Posner is the mother of an American Soldier. Wife, mother of three, kidney transplant patient for 32 years and victim of violence, she shares her life's experiences by speaking and writing, in hopes of reaching out to others who are struggling. She serves in the Women's, Audio-Visual, Music and Small Group ministries at Lawndale Christian Church, in Lawndale, California, where she also works as Church Secretary. Carol lives in Torrance, California with her husband, Joel, daughter, Leora, and "The Herd." (A Doberman, a Boxer, a Chihuahua and a Siamese cat)

Reviews - What do customers think about Ordinary Patriot?
Ordinary Patriot welcome to the family Oct 19, 2007
Ordinary Patriot moves your heart thru and by the first hand experiences of PFC Jesse A. Posner, deployed to the Afghani/Gulf wars, via his letters, emails and phone calls. Carol and her family take you along with them on the emotional roller coaster they rode and the array of panic buttons that were pushed during Jesse's tour of duty. On the other hand it also lifts your spirits via compelling, comforting, pertinent biblical scripture and valuable author insight. It is a book that once opened cannot be put down until the last page is turned.
