David P. Ervin served as an infantryman in the Iraq War in 2005. We covered his work Leaving the Wire: An Infantryman’s Iraq in another post. At around the same time David joined one of our writing workshops and completed a story for the recently released Blue Nostalgia: A Journal of Post-Traumatic Growth, the literary journal of the Veterans’ PTSD Project.
Joe Harting, the show’s host, calls David’s book “brutally honest” in the interview and hopes that the work will connect those who haven’t served with those who have. We agree and want to congratulate David in getting some well-deserved coverage. You can watch the whole interview below:
