Patrick Stewart, the actor who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard on the television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation” recently made the news not for his acting chops but rather for the way he answered a question from a fan. Stewart was participating in a Q&A when a young woman asked him about his work with Amnesty International and violence against women. His answer was compassionate and thoughtful.
In his first work, Justin Jordan details life as an Air Force Mortuary Non Commissioned Officer. Jordan holds nothing back, and shares in graphic detail how he honored America’s heroes, both at deployed locations and stateside. Jordan also shares how this job taxed his mental well-being.
