The Author


Jenny La Sala’s ancestors fought in the Civil War. She is the sister of a Gulf War Veteran, daughter of a 101st Airborne WWII Veteran and former spouse to a Vietnam Veteran. Jenny is a writer and interviewer who through her diligence and personal warmth capture the Veteran’s emotional thoughts as critical pieces in our country’s growth and understanding of what it is like to be a Veteran.

She published her 101st Airborne father’s wartime letters in the book, Comes A Soldier’s Whisper, opening the door for her expansion to Veteran advocacy, compassion and understanding PTSD within her own family. Vietnam And Beyond was honored as a finalist for the 2015 Eric Hoffer Book Award and Jenny’s first children’s book, When Daddy Comes Home has also been honored as a finalist for the 2016 Eric Hoffer Book Award and addresses the challenges faced when Daddy returns changed by the war experience in Iraq and Afghanistan. Jenny shares a child’s journey of their parent’s military service to and from war in a unique child’s perspective. These publications have changed Jenny in a profound and totally unexpected way. She believes they will change you too.
