Readers will appreciate history through the lens of an Air Force veteran and former farm boy.

Clarence E. “Kip” Vold published his autobiography, titled “Farmer’s Son, Military Career” (Page Publishing; 2015). The author was born in 1940 to Norwegian immigrants in South Dakota and grew up on a farm. He enlisted in the Air Force in 1959 and served for 30 years. He received his BA in Economics from California State University-Chico in 1997.
For certain readers, “Farmer’s Son, Military Career” is more than just a great piece of family history and heritage and a legacy of military service. For them, it is a mirror into the past, especially from the 1940s up to the early 1990s. Readers will find the author’s perspective of the times doubly interesting.
The author narrates how his parents were still reeling from the Great Depression, the simplicity of the life back then, his first contact and work experience with people of different ethnicities, and his experience of the Vietnam War, among others. He also takes the liberty to explain his political orientation (“I now see myself more as libertarian than liberal but with both liberal and conservative symptoms”) and views on government (I believe the role of government is to serve its constituents, not rule them”).
Clarence E. “Kip” Vold’s “Farmer’s Son, Military Career” makes a good reference material for the study of American History.
