Very well told story about Sgt. Carlos Hathcock, a Marine veteran and hero during the 60's. Packed with action and adventure. I'm glad we have people like him.

However, it does return me to questions regarding the moral ambiguity of what must be done to defend our nation.

I finished Charles Henderson’s Marine Sniper an excellent first person account of Carlos Hathcock service in the Marine Corp, primarily as a marine sniper and shooting instructor.

Carlos Hathcock made him self the preeminent sniper in Vietnam who would take himself to legendary staus through his work. He would go into the bush for extended missions who led by example not from a desk.

Among his deeds were taking the shooting of a Chinese military officer and his legendary long distance shot in enemy country of a NVA General.

I read this over 30 years ago and I couldn’t believe all that I forgot.

A prime focused read on a man who gave his all to country and Corp and in his last mission while deployed rescued fellow marines at the cost of significant 2nd and 3rd degree burns across his body and later in life he was diagnosed with MS.

A worth read.

When you think Valentine, you think soft, sweet, and cuddly. Jack Valentine may have some of those elements, but he has a thirst for revenge and justice that lands him before a judge who gives he a choice, go to jail or enlist in the marines. He could be a poster boy for the marines. Loyal, relentless, physically fit, and an expert shooter, he becomes a sniper that must kill so that others may live. His newest assignment finds him back in the Middle East tracking down al-Qaida terrorist. His childhood sweetheart, FBI agent, Liberty is threatened and Jack is missing in action. This is a story of faith, misguided trust, treason, and redemption. Author Henderson does a fine job describing the complexity of terrorism, fanatics, and the thin line between living one’s beliefs and using other’s belief for selfish reasons.

I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway. Although encouraged, I was under no obligation to write a review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
