Charlie's mother (Elizabeth) died when he was 6 years old. He, his brother George, and his sister Louise attended a Catholic boarding school, St. Francis Academy, in Columbus, NE.

He was a Corporal in the U.S. Army during WWI. Sister Connie saved his letters and postcards in her scrapbook. His date of entry in the service was October 3, 1917. His basic training was at Camp Lewis (now Fort Lewis, near Tacoma WA).

From Barbara ECKROAT WILD: Uncle Charlie worked in the Bremerton Navy Yard until retirement. He commuted from Seattle via ferry all those many years! We had all his wonderful descriptive letters from the front line (fox holes) in France and Germany. He served under General Pershing.

From Robert WILD: Uncle Charlie was in WWI and kept his old helmet in the basement. It had a bullet hole all the way through. The bullet grazed the top of his head which left a scar. As a kid this was very fascinating!

Charlie and Lola were married in Chile, although Lola was of Polish descent. He and Lola had one child who died at age 6 mos. They lived in a small house in Seattle.
