Jim Carrick held a book signing at the Mesquite Vet Center Saturday morning to highlight the publishing of his book ‘They Raised Their hand’.
Carrick a Mesquite resident since 2008 writing career began with a piece entitled Veterans Corner which was published in the DVT. It gave Carrick the idea for the book, a book about veterans and their service to our country.
Carrick interviewed veterans locally and from other communities. “I decided to take the Veterans Corner to another level,” said Carrick. “I was so impressed with the stories the Vets had to tell and how proud they were to share it. Their respect for God, Country and Family stuck with me so I had to share their story with everyone.”
A good number of book purchasers filtered in and out of the Vet Center with the book in hand.
