The book is a great look on one man’s life as a soldier in Vietnam. Good times and hard times. As he saw his friends fight and die, along with his self being all shot up.
The one time Sgt Hack was hit was on Rocket Day April 10th 1968. I saw the rocket that hit Hack. Since then our lives have come around 360 degrees, as we finally got to meet 45 years later.
A great meeting. So this is why I enjoyed the book, I knew what he went through and never gave up. A true friend, and survivor he was. I would fight anywhere, anytime with my friend, Sgt David Hack.
War is so hard to forget
And so easy to remember

I have read “The Life of a Warrior” and completely enjoyed it. I found it fascinating how much David Hack has lived. It is equally fascinating how he is always looking up throughout the highs and lows of life. It is a very good read.

 I wasn’t alive during Vietnam. However I have a huge appreciation for the history of our country and the men and women who lived through it. They are the only ones who can help us imagine what life was like during a different time. As our veterans are getting older our history dies along with their story. What an honor to hear the story of sgt Hack. It gives me an appreciation for what his life was like.

 Great to know that there are soldiers of my generation like Sarge.
Enjoyed reading his book. A man of grit is all I can say.
I was in the Army in 68-70 but was sent to South Korea during the dust up from the Chinese.
I hold all veterans in high honor especially 11-B. Nam vets have a special place in my heart.
Military service is one of the top honors of my life serving my country.
Thanks for writing some of your personal life events, I enjoyed it front to back.
Thanks for your unselfish dedication to serve and protect our freedoms.
Welcome Home Soldier, welcome home.

 The Life of a Warrior” is a testament to the determination, fortitude and backbone of a true patriot. It shows what can be accomplished in this great country. Sgt Hack is truly an example of someone who continually was knocked down and pulled himself up in the face of many diverse hurdles. As a veteran who also served as a Combat Infantryman with the 1st Infantry Division, 28th infantry regiment in Lai Khe 1968, the retelling of his combat experience is a personal accomplishment and brought back my own memories of that year in hell. A job well done and a life well lived Sgt Hack, I salute you.

a true hero book

An inspiring account of the life of just one military man that should be read by every American.
April L.
One of the greatest books of its type ever written!
Gregory Hill 
Provocative, I’d be interested in seeing the film based on the book!
Paul K. 
An awe inspiring book about a grass roots person, who honored his older brother and in the tradition of all Military Veterans put his personal needs aside for the betterment of his fellow Americans.
He has earned & brings honor to the title of Nobility in its’ truest sense, by his grand example not just through inheritance.
It is a must read for all elementary & High School students!
Sgt. Hack as so many of his comrades has set the moral pace for both young and old.
Any person that has had many personal struggles in their life should read this book. We need more people in the world like Sgt. Hack.
Well written; brief, but to the point. This book can be read in about an hour. In the time it takes to commute on train to & from work. It teaches a life lesson which shall prove invaluable.
Thomas P.
I terrific story of one persons triumph over adversity. A story that has been repeated time after time throughout the history of this great nation and one that will no doubt inspire many more. It reminds me of a recent quote by another great American, “do your best and let God do the rest.”

Some times those times seem like they happened on another planet. I served USN 6-67/6-71. I never saw any combat, never left CONUS, never served aboard ship but had honor to serve men from all branches of the US Military. I interviewed thousands of men in transit and in processing through the various military systems and structures, including legal and mental. Reading Sargent Hack’s story brought back a flood of memories.
Many of a man’s interactions with fellow service men are brief and perfunctory. My first job was to work in “Receiving” Norfolk Naval Base. For most of the enlisted personnel assigned to this office the duty was temporary. We ran 24/7/365 and the daily through put of men assisted and processed were so many that at times the lines were backed up out the door and around the building, a never ending stream of faces and needs. Most assigned this work quickly burned out. For me this became the most fascinating job I could ever had. As each man stepped up to my window I had a few seconds to look him over, listen to needs, questions and take care of him in a way that best suited his circumstances within the system’s capability.
A service man’s uniform tells a lot of things about him, his rank, his speciality, where he has served, his campaign ribbons, but there is still much that is written in the face and in the eyes. Once you have looked into the eyes of a combat veteran you quickly understand that combat changed him and left an indelible mark. I learned to recognize these men. Most often their needs were ordinary. As a rule it required opening and reading the man’s military record. I learned to swiftly scan the recorded information, double checking my evaluation. Thus within in 60 seconds I had already learned more about him than he would ever guess. I always strived to give each man the best service. For the combat veteran the extra mile for his needs became my honor and my duty.
It has been almost half a century now but I recently learned some things from a 1st cousin of mine who served in the Navy in the same time frame as I. He went on to become a police officer who went into the army to become a helicopter pilot, got out and served the US Border Patrol until he retired. His parents divorced and his mother returned to Kentucky where he was raised in poverty similar to that as Sgt. Hack’s as a young boy. At the age of 13 already starting down the wrong road his maternal grand mother contacted his paternal grand mother who contacted his father. His father traveled back to Kentucky, and returned to the west with his son. My cousin went into the Navy right out of high school. Having myself been divorced under less than ideal circumstances I had an understanding of how things can work so that a father can be forced to be cut out of the lives of his children. I had a special affection for this uncle, a WWII veteran who returned from Europe to quickly marry and quickly divorce. However, my cousin confessed to me that he still carried anger, bitterness, and resentment towards his now departed father.
Reading Sgt. Hacks biography touched a lot of tender places for me. Having looked deeply into the eyes of combat veterans of ground war, of air war, and sea war I have an unending appreciation of the sacrifice of so many so that the many more could live in peace.
My father, four uncles and a grand father all veterans, three combat veterans, and in recent ancestry research found a family tree filled with veterans, and a few villains. In 1917 my paternal grand father’s younger brother took his place in the draft and died in combat in France at 11:00 AM, November 11, 1918. I’m confident Sgt. Hack would find the same truths in his family’s history.

Helping Vietnam Vets

It is often said that it is important to give back.  SFC David Hack wounded twice in Vietnam, realized the importance of helping his brothers that served.  He felt that sharing his life story could help those that have struggled since coming home. 

 Sgt. Hack spent a year in the Ireland Army Hospital at Ft. Knox Kentucky recovering from severe wounds in Vietnam.  He truly believes the time he spent with his fellow Vietnam Vets helped him overcome the horrors of war and make it easier for him to assimilate back into society.

In its 2015 edition, The Life of a Warrior tells the story of a Sgt. Hack  from his humble beginnings in Sunfish Kentucky to his role as CEO of US Wings.  It is an inspiring story of rising from poverty to serving his country in the Coast Guard and then the United States Army in Vietnam.  Most importantly he relates his success, his failures, and being able to start over from the bottom.
