Aaron Louis Jordan – a US Marine veteran and a former long-time resident of Woburn, died Wednesday, September 30th, at the US Veterans Hospital in West Roxbury after a brief battle with cancer.  He was 68 years of age.

He enlisted in the US Marines on February 19, 1970 and was honorably discharged on June 14, 1972. During his years of service, Aaron served in the Vietnam War, and fought on the battlefield.

After his honorable discharge from the Marines, Aaron moved back to Woburn, where he lived before, he was brought under the medical care of the US Veterans Administration, which declared him totally disabled from injuries he suffered, including PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), during his military service.

The Family Service Association was providing care to Mr. Jordan through its Guardianship Program. The program moved him into the Home for Disabled Veterans in Wareham, where he lived for the past three years before he was recently admitted to the US Veterans Hospital in Brockton, and later to the US Veterans Hospital in West Roxbury.

During his time at the Veterans Home in Wareham, Aaron often talked about returning to Woburn, and how much he enjoyed living in his hometown, especially being with friends at the city’s VFW post and the South End Italian Club. He was always generous and helpful to friends and acquaintances in need.    

Aaron leaves a son, Calvin H. Jordan of Wake Forest, North Carolina; two brothers, Robert A. Jordan of North Billerica, and Thomas F. Jordan of West Bridgewater; and a sister, Coralie L. Samuels of Coral Springs, Florida. He is predeceased by a sister, Pauline B. Nelson; and three brothers, Bruce E. Jordan, Anthony D. Jordan, and Lloyd O. Jordan. He is also survived by two grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
