Longtime columnist Garret Mathews has authored “Defending My Bunk Against All Comers, Sir!” for Zone Press, an imprint of Rogers Publishing in Denton, Texas.

It’s a partly humorous book about the experiences of Mathews and others drafted into the Army during the Vietnam War.

Mathews has penned more than 6,200 columns for the Bluefield, W.V., Daily Telegraph and The Evansville, Ind., Courier & Press. He has also written six books as well as a recent play — “Jubilee in the Rear-View Window,” about the civil rights movement in fictional Jubilee, Miss., in 1964.
