The letters by David Clinton Tharp detail his time serving in Europe. He was wounded in Holland. An excerpt from one letter said, "When I came to my senses, I thought my leg was gone. That's a terrible feeling. I think a million things must have flashed through my head at once. I probably shouldn't have told you this...the same shell killed two and wounded five. I guess it was quite a mess, not as bad as some I've seen though. Well, enough about that."
The book was published a year ago, but is gaining a new following through a Facebook Page. Lasala posts excerpts from the letters and other things about the war.
Proceeds from the book support Operation First Response, which helps service members transition to civilian life.
