In June 1919 he was a Reserve 2nd LT but because of the downsizing after world war one he was turned inactive and re-enlisted as regular enlisted. He wasnt really stuck in Haiti, he wanted action and he found it there, good job though Poolee Parrish. I just finished another book on him.

" There have been many marines. And there have been many Marine Marksmen. But there is only one Marine Sniper-Gunnery Sgt. Carlos N. Hathcock II. One Shot-One Kill. "...Im pretty sure he recieved it from his commanding officer.

My recruiter was telling me about the guy who cuts his hair. His hair cutter guy is a former Marine, who made it all the way up the ranks to Master Gunnery Sergeant, until some General decided that he was officer Material. so he then gets all the way up to fullbird colonel. Apparently, the General who felt he was officer material, was none other than "Chesty". Also, on that Marine Corps sniper, i believe he had 93 confirmed kills, was famous for his long stalk of an NVA general, and single handedly eradicated a NVA company over the course of about a week i think. Not completely sure however...

yes your both right if you would like a great book about him the name of it is "93 confirmed kills" it is a great book to read, i couldn't put it down an i hate reading

He didn't single handedly take on a company of NVA, it was him and his spotter. Between the two of them they took out most of the company and finished them off with a napalm strike I believe (it was either that or with arty). That story is also in the book "One Shot, One Kill", along with the stalking of the NVA general.
