Jamie Summerlin is a local veteran who ran across the country in 100 days last year raising money for wounded warriors.
Summerlin documented his travels for a book called "Freedom Run." Thursday night, Operation Welcome Home hosted a book launch to introduce it.
"I certainly want to encourage people to come out and get the book," said Summerlin. "It hits so many different demographics. It's not just the running community or the military community, but also speaks to the true American spirit...and really, the community coming out in force because they care about our veterans and want to support them."
Summerlin will be at a book signing at the Barnes and Noble in Granville on Saturday.
