Bill Bunker, Idaho Falls, Idaho
Bill Bunker is the Vice President of Store Operations for C-A-L Ranch Stores. Bill volunteered for the draft in 1969 to join the USMC at the age of 17. He went to boot camp in Camp Pendleton, CA. Bill says, “I still remember my drill instructor’s voices.” He was then sent to Marine Corps Engineer School in North Carolina for advanced training after which he received orders to go to DaNang Vietnam. He made it as far as Okinawa, but was diverted to Iwakuni Japan. Bill spent the better part of a year in Japan when his service time was over. He came home and went to work for Sears for 35 years. Bill came to ride for the C-A-L Ranch Brand six and half years ago. “Wow, only three jobs in my entire life!”
