Check out Sgt. Hack’s Veteran’s Day Interview on Fox News.
He was interviewed by Fox News Channel weekend anchor Arthel Neville and the interview was broadcast live at 5:50 PM ET. Sgt. Hack talked about how US Wings got its start and touched on various aspects of running the business. Check out the video here.
SFC Hack volunteered for Vietnam in 1968, joining the 1st Infantry Division and was serving as a sergeant with the Big Red One in Lai Khe, Vietnam, in 1968, when he was awarded the Purple Heart for combat injuries that ultimately ended his military career. He actually suffered injuries on two occasions, taking shrapnel to the leg, arm, face, back and side. He spent a full year in a U.S. Army hospital in Fort Knox and was three years on medical hold.
The Department of the Army asked SFC Hack to be a recruiter, and he was assigned the Akron, Cuyahoga Falls, and Tallmadge, Ohio area.
He gained nationwide recognition as a top Army recruiter. His distinctive recruiting tools, which included a “Sgt. Hack Wants You” T-shirt, a custom Army jeep, and a custom-painted Corvette, helped make SFC Hack the United States’ No. 1 US Army recruiter (out of 12,000 recruiters) from 1969 to 1973. The jeep he used is on display at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, home of the 101st Airborne Division. The only other jeep ever to be enshrined in a U.S. military museum belonged to GEN George S. Patton, whose jeep is enshrined at Fort Knox.
