Also while in Korea, Hackworth was put in charge of Fox Company. After seeing the horrible conditions the soldiers were enduring, Hackworth knew something needed to be done.
Hackworth rebuilt Fox Company: reconstructing barracks, teaching soldiers new fighting techniques, etc. The battalion was renamed to Fighter Company and grew into one of the most effective fighting units in Korea.
