Jordan enlisted in the Army in 1939 and served proudly for six years. Initially stationed in Alaska, he later joined the European Theater of Operations remaining there until the end of World War II. He was active in Ardennes, Central Europe, and Rhineland campaigns receiving multiple medals and citations for his actions. He was discharged with the rank of Sergeant.

Jordan met the love of his life, wife Lee, shortly after returning from military service. Married in 1948, they shared 64 years of marriage. His dedication and devotion to his family, his wife and children, will never be forgotten. We will cherish his memory as he cherished us.
