The ‘Boys of Jasper County’ meet with Gov. Branstad
When Steve Bookout first came up with the concept for his book, “Boys of Jasper County: Tales from the ’Nam,” he didn’t expect much success. Since then, the first run has sold out and he has sold copies around the world.
“The guy in New Zealand said ‘It was bloody good,’ and Denmark said, ‘It was cool,’” Bookout said. “A lot of people have said, ‘If you write another one, I’ve got a story to tell.’”
Bookout, who served as an Army helicopter pilot in Vietnam, and his good friend Navy Vietnam veteran Tom McKinney traveled to the Iowa State Capitol on Wednesday to personally deliver a first-run edition of the book to Gov. Terry Branstad.
