Adventures of Point-Man Palmer

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The book also includes cartoons drawn for the Pacific Stars and Stripes and his OCS Classbook, as well as a previously unpublished cartoon story about the need for radios for the foot soldier.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.
