Sgt. Hack’s 1st Division Vietnam History Interview

SFC David D. Hack (US Army, Ret.), CEO of US Wings, was selected to participate in a historic project for the Cantigny First Division Oral History in  July of  2008. The Cantigny First Division Oral History project was developed by Ball State University.  Stories from the BIG RED ONE, the United States Army First Division, whose motto is :  “No mission too difficult, No sacrifice too great— Duty First”, are recorded.  Sgt. Hack relates his experience with the Big Red 1 during his volunteered deployment to Vietnam in 1968.
The Cantigny museum is home to the McCormick Research Center, for use by authors, scholars, teachers and students. The Center’s archives contain more than 10,000 works on military history, including works on various battles, campaigns and wars.  The museum also has exhibits and artifacts chronicling the First Division’s service history beginning in World War I up to the present day.
The Cantigny First Division Oral history project resides in Ball State University’s Library Digital Media Repository. The museum is built on the grounds of the Robert R. McCormick estate.  On display outside the museum is the area’s largest collection of tanks and artillery pieces. The collection includes vehicles from World War I to the present day used by the Big Red One.
