    My name is Sharon Hack Moore. I am looking for any information on my brother LCP Benny G. Hack. He was WIA at Hiep Duc RVN on November 19,1965.Was evac to 85th MedEvacHosp Oui Nhon RVN, later ecav to Clark AB Philippine Islands,resulting in his death on Novenber 25,1965. From what I understand he was in the vicinity of Chu Lai Republic of Vietnam. He was with the VMO-6 MAG-36 1st MAW FMF Pac FPO SFran.

    If anyone knew my brother and is willing to talk to me about him I would really appreciate talking to you .

    The catalyst for my becoming a Marine

    Sharon, You won't likely remember me, but I met you (and Benny) when he was home on leave from "Boot Camp" in Waco, in the summer of 1964. I met you both (and Benny's twin brother, Lynn) through a mutual freind, Freddy Spiegel. Benny was truly one of those 'larger-than-life' characters who had an impact on everyone around him. The startling changes in Benny, mentioned by everyone who'd known him before he became a Marine were impressive, and the sort of changes I needed to make, as well. I never served with Benny, but his death was one of the main reasons I left the Naval Reserve in 1966 and joined the Corps. I've written a bit about him and the effect he had on me, that I'd be glad to share with you. If you'll look elsewhere on this website under Prose & Poetry, you'll find a poem entitled "The Wall revisited...." Benny is listed in the dedication. I hope you and yours are well.

    Semper Fidelis,
    Curt "Sully" Sullenberger
