Richard C. Kirkland, Fighter Pilot: Mission Accomplished!

Local Vienna resident Richard C. Kirkland, WWII Fighter Pilot and Korean War MASH Helicopter Pilot, describes his life goals to fly planes, paint pictures and write books. RCK – “In the USA, anything is possible if you put your mind to it.”  Richard has been Historic Vienna’s guest speaker in the past and was a participant in our successful “Vienna Remembers WWII” exhibit from a few years ago.  Richard has recently published a new book titled “Wide Place in the Road” which is a terrific novel that blends a great love story with events that occur during WWII.
