I have read about Gunny Hathcock and his exploits in Nam over many times. The book is an excellent read. I suggest that every Marine and Soldier, young and old read this book and revel in the grit of a true warrior. I just found out the Carlos Hathcock recently passed away on 3/1/99 and i'm sure there is a place for him in that section of heaven where good Marines are found, probably on duty at the gates. again great book.
