A Short Biography About Sergeant Hack

By Nita McKinney

Sergeant Hack was raised in a rural town in Kentucky and later moved in another town called Louisville. He joined the US Coast Guard in the year 1957 at an early age of seventeen and served for at least four years. In the year 1964, he enrolled in the Army and volunteered for Ranger Training. He prepared through different recruiters until he reached the Ranger Department at Fort Benning, GA. In the year 1965, he was placed on track for Ranger School Training. He was then assigned to serve as a Harbor Craft Boatswain at the Eglin Air Force Base, FL.

He was able to support twenty Ranger School training cycles for 21 days and a month for two years and still believing that his own start date would come. However, his desire to attend his dream took second place because of the needs of the Army. Sergeant Hack loyally served the Army by preparing young soldiers and officers for combat in Vietnam.

In his 24 months designation as the support for Ranger preparation, he was not able to finish it and never wore his coveted Ranger Tab. He became disappointed because he was not able to get his desired schedule for his class. Also, he was not given the chance to have a Tab. Though, he was able to realize the value of his responsibilities in training and became proud to be part of the brigade in two years.

Sergeant Hack joined to First Infantry Division later on where he served as the sergeant in the Big Red One in a place called Lai Khe, Vietnam. In 1968, he was given the award of Purple Heart for having battle wounds that ended his career in military. He got many injuries for two varied occasions.

He was sent for a year in a hospital for the Army in the United States and was later extended for another three years where he was ordered for medical hold. When he finally recovered, he was made as the recruiter for various towns such as Tallmadge, Ohio and in Akron, Cuyahhoga Falls. He became recognized nationwide as the best recruiter.

His distinctive recruiting tools will include a shirt, a custom jeep and a custom painted Corvette. This made him the number one recruiter from the years 1969 to 1973. The jeep that he used is still on display at a museum in Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

After many years that followed his retirement, he served in Hudson Township Police Department. He was also assigned in the Summit County Sheriff Department. He ended his police career as a Chief of Police in Sebring, Ohio.

In the year 1985, he founded the US Wings together with his wife. This is a family operated company that is located in Boston Heights, Ohio. They supply bomber jackets and aviation gears to different branches of the armed forces.

He was given various awards and recognition later on. Sergeant Hack was awarded as a Veteran of the Foreign Wars in the US, the First Infantry Division, Ohio Association of Chief of Police and a Lifetime Beneficiary of the 101st Division. He was also given the the Vietnam Service Award, Purple Heart and the Army Recruiter Emblem. Congressman Steven La Tourette also held a ceremony for him in Ohio where he received honors.
