KHS alumnus Bob Kunkel, originally of Pearl Lake, spent parts of 18 years writing a memoir of his year in Vietnam. Originally intended as a legacy to leave for his grandchildren, it was published as a nearly 400-page book. Walking Point: A Vietnam Memoir is available for purchase on amazon.com, at the Tri-County News office, or directly from Bob.
An interview aired with Bob on the Arvig cable show “Around the Corner” this week (cable channel 14), and it’s already receiving aclaim.
Bob will be at the Kimball Public Library from 5:30-
6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 26, to speak about his experiences, the process of writing the book, and to answer questions. He also will have copies of Walking Point for sale, and can sign your copy if you already have one. Dates at other area libraries are upcoming.
