The Hackmobile was one of Sgt. Hack’s most essential (if unorthodox) tools during his days as the nation’s #1 US Army recruiter* in the early 1970s. Determined to be the #1 Recruiter in the nation, Sgt Hack began with a custom painted 1960 Corvette and then added the Hackmobile which began its life as a military jeep attached to the 101st Airborne at Ft. Campbell Kentucky. Sgt. Hack was the Recruiter of Choice for the 101st Airborne and painted the Hackmobile to represent the 101st.

*Before retiring, Sgt. Hack was an Army recruiter in Ohio and won the title of the nation’s #1 recruiter from 1969-1973, using a customized Army jeep and a custom-painted Corvette as recruiting tools. Sgt. Hack’s jeep is one of only two jeeps to ever be displayed in a US Military Museum, the other belonging to Gen. George S. Patton (whose jeep is displayed at Fort Knox, KY). Since being acquired by the museum, Sarge’s jeep has only been driven once… by Gen. William Westmoreland, who drove it in a parade.
