Please read local book about ‘The Boys From Jasper County’

To the editor:

I have just finished “The Boys From Jasper County,” a book edited by Steve Bookout, that was highlighted in Thursday’s edition of the Newton Daily News.

It’s a great tribute to a number of young heroes from our county who served their nation so very well during the Vietnam Conflict.

Knowing a number these men for many years made this well-documented book even more meaningful.

A debt of continuing gratitude should be paid to these brave troops who sacrificed much, and of course to the thousands who lost their lives during this time.

Our Newton Library has several copies of this new book. It’s certainly worth reading, and reviewing the many photos contributed by those whose stories are in the book. Check it out!
