Rucksack Grunt
by Vietnam Veteran Robert Kuhn

You can engage in a conversation with 1,000 different Vietnam Veterans and get 1,000 different stories about their war experience. Some guys had it bad; some guys had it not so bad. It all depends on what part of the country they were in, what year they served in, and what their specific MOS and duty assignments were.
They all served.

This is my story, the good and the bad.

Book Front Cover

A good, well written, easy to read autobiography. Thank you for all the details of life in the Army and Vietnam, and above all your positive attitude for life, family, and faith. Wishing you a continued great life.
Mike Serrin, San Diego, California.

Rucksack Grunt is a well written, fast paced account of one man’s journey from small town Pennsylvania to the deadly hills of the Central Highlands of South Vietnam, during the later years of the U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia. The author vividly describes life as a grunt, as well as the political climate, both at home and in the military as his journey takes him full circle. Well done Mr. Kuhn.

~Joe Campolo Jr, Author, The Kansas NCO Trilogy
