After the military record of a Hudson mayoral candidate was questioned last year, a federal agency has apologized and admitted to the errors it made when releasing David Hack's records.
The Beacon Journal reports records sent by the National Personnel Records Center to the POW Network incorrectly stated that Hack was retired as a specialist. He was actually retired as a sergeant first class.
To set the record straight, Hack paid for a full-page advertisement in the Beacon Journal on Wednesday featuring the apology from the agency.
Hack's attorney recently dismissed the defamation lawsuit against those who challenged his military record including WKYC, reporter Eric Mansfield and Hudson Mayor William Currin.
Hack lost the election to William Currin in November.
