About Jack Hawkins

Born in nineteen hundred and fifty-five, putting 'Black Jack' Hawkins formative years right there, smack dab in the middle of the turbulent Vietnam Era. One of the four hundred students at Mercersberg Academy, in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania, when the National Guard shot and killed four students at Kent State, in Ohio.

Then in the late seventies and into the eighties 'Black Jack' lived the expatriate adventurer lifestyle in Central America, defending truth, justice and the American Way. Following the philosophical trail blazed by Smedley D.Butler, Major General, USMC, (ret). The players changed as the years marched on, but the song remained the same.

There were years spent in the Sierra Ancha mountains of Arizona. Riding horses, roping wild cattle and living the life described by Edward Abbey and Zane Grey. Out back of beyond in the Arizona wilderness, around Pleasant Valley, which is where they had the war. That is another story, all together, well told by Zane Grey in ""To the Last Man".

Spent a lot of time reading, not much writing.

Learned about 'Bounty Hunting' by happenstance, long before 'Dog' made it a television show. Discovered it was kind of fun, suitable for an adrenaline junky.

The truth is out there you just have to go find it.
