in Vietnam

by Betsy Reese Grant


book cover


Local resident Betsy Reese Grant has just published her first book, The Adventures of Point-Man Palmer in Vietnam. The book is her late husband Vernon Grant’s story about U.S. Army life in the 1960s. The story is told through his cartoons and showcases his unique sense of humor. Betsy begins the book with a biography of Vernon. The book also includes cartoons drawn for the Pacific Stars and Stripes and his OCS Classbook, as well as a previously unpublished cartoon story about the need for radios for the foot soldier. The book concludes with selections from Standing by One! and the complete book of Point-Man Palmer and His Girlfriend “Invisible Peppermint” in Vietnam. Betsy will be at the library on Tuesday, November 18, from 5:30- 7:30 p.m. to sign her books. Books will be discounted for this signing and on sale for $14.35. For those that have served in the military the price will be $12.75 (cash & checks only please). Stop in and see our newest local author and learn more about The Adventures of Point-Man Palmer in Vietnam and her experience of writing and publishing a book. Refreshments will be served.
