Rucksack Grunt Reviews and Comments


Excellent ! I went through it page by page, read the whole thing and loved it. Your story means a lot to me personally because so much of it is an experience of a time and place I shared. But that shared experience is not the only reason I like your story. You did such a good job of writing this, you really should publish it. If you have an extra copy of your book and with your permission, we would like it to be included in the 22nd Infantry Regiment Society archives.”

Your story is a VERY good story and down to earth so that the reader can relate to it.  Nothing better than a story you can put yourself into. I like when you finish a chapter, you want to go on to the next one to find out what happens next.”

I enjoyed reading your story. The salient thing, most touching to me, is how much you love your wife. I don’t know many people who married their high school sweetheart and are still married and in love. Younger people today have no concept of how that war and the draft affected us (babyboomers) back then… sure influenced what YOU did.

I just finished reading your book. I DEFINITELY want to buy a copy of it as soon as it hits the market! What an awesome, candid, well written, tale of what it was like to be with B-Company, 1/22, as our time there was winding down! A story that MUST be told and appreciated by everyone who served in our unit.

Great story! I was in the 1st platoon at the same time you were there, and I remember the incidents you wrote about! When the convoy got hit, I was two trucks behind the gun-truck that got hit, and we came to a complete stop because the gun-truck was blocking the road.  We opened up fire on the side of the hill to the right of us.

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. Hopefully all the crew can read this, since most of us are around the same age. Wishing you a continued great life.

First, I want to thank you for sending me your book. I read your story and thoroughly enjoyed it. You should reconsider publishing it on Amazon where potential readers will find it easier. You’ve a great story that should be told. I have read many books about grunts in Vietnam and yours held my attention all the way through. Great job!”

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.

Saturday evening around 6:00pm I opened the first page of your book to read some of it. At 10pm I closed the book, only because there were no more pages to read. Even though I am your brother, there are many things that I did not know about you that I now do. Your story is amazing. Great job!”
Phil Kuhn, Pennsylvania. 11/8/2020

In his book, Rucksack Grunt, Robert Kuhn states that war is 99% boredom and 1% sheer terror and insanity. He does a great job of describing both as he takes us through his nearly two years of military service, including a tour in Vietnam as an infantryman. This fast paced ‘memoir’ reads like a novel as you turn each page, experiencing what Bob went through during those years. I applaud him for sharing his story with the world. Welcome home, brother.
