Sgt. Hack and the Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary Vietnam War

Sgt. Hack and US Wings are ardent supports of the Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War.  Appointed a Partner by the 50th Anniversary Commission, Sgt. Hack  has provided The Life of A Warrior, his book about his life and experiences in Vietnam free to Veterans Hospitals, VFW’s, American Legions, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapters and many others.
Vietnam had a profound experience on Sgt. Hack.  Wounded twice, the second time severely, Sgt Hack spent over a year at Ireland Army Hospital at Ft. Knox Kentucky.  He feels this time spent with his fellow wounded veterans helped him transition from combat back to the world.  The Life of a Warrior recounts his time spent in Vietnam in 1968 from his arrival in March until his medical evacuation in September.
The Life of a Warrior is in its 9th printing and has been given out to over 100,000 people around the world.
 After serving several months as a Career Counselor, he was selected to be the NCOIC of Protocol for Major General Keith Ware, acting as his bodyguard.

Ordered by a young Lieutenant September 13th, 1968 not to accompany General Ware and instead travel overland via convoy, Sgt. Hack was ambushed by the Viet Cong and severely wounded.   A rocket-propelled grenade destroyed General Ware’s helicopter while in flight saving Sarge’s life.  Sgt. Hack was the only survivor of the ambush of his company.

To this day, Sgt. Hack has been involved in helping veterans in a multitude of causes and events.
 Most recently, partnering with the Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War to promote awareness of the 58,220 Heroes who gave all, and the millions of surviving solders who have never been recognized for their sacrifices.
