Its been nearly three years since Jamie took his last breath. Through the last two years I have worked with editors, co editors, publishers, managers and printing companies to share the journal I kept while we were in the hospital. At first I was approached to do a trilogy about my life before Jamie, during and after, however, I turned it down knowing that I wanted to wrap everything up in one book to share our love, dedication and loyalty with the world..
The one issue I had releasing the book was trying to get all parties included to understand that 100% of the proceeds would be donated to the Military Veteran Project for program support. Over time everyone understood that Sacrificed Memoirs of SSG Jamie & Melissa Jarboe was not a for profit every day book, it is a story about love, life & loss and it is my story to share with you.
My name is Melissa Jarboe, military spouse, wounded warrior wife and war widow. Today and everyday moving forward, I will honor the sacrifice of our men and women who selflessly serve our nation.
