"Newsweek fired Hackworth"
I am going to remove this phrase until someone who has knowledge of this incident can clarify a few things:
1.) Was it firing for cause or a layoff(i.e., simple failure to renew a contract.)
2.) If firing for cause, reason for the dismissal. Was it due to misconduct (or allegations thereof) in his investigation of the Navy officer mentioned? Or were there other issues?
2.) Sources for the above.
It would be nice if anyone could provide promotion dates. I have seen it claimed that he was the youngest O3 and the youngest O6; promotion dates would seem appropriate to help evaluation such claims. ~~
Doesn't he describe his battlefield commission as occurring before the Wolfhound Raiders were formed? Harvard yarrd
- I revised & extended the relevant section of article. Harvard yarrd
"No references" ?
The article has a tag: "This article does not cite any references or sources." Yet, reading the article, there are references. Much of the bio material is probably pulled from his book About Face -- at least, it agrees with it. Harvard yarrd
What is this?
"and his exploits at the time were rivaled only by the loyalty of his troops and the growth in his leadership skills and style."
What the heck is this - it's supposed to be a biographical statement? I can't believe that the person who wrote this ever spent a day in military service. This is terrible writing; overwrought crap. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 09:41, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
