Many thanks to Charles' cousin, Jerry, for the biographical information.
Charles' original headstone had been broken off the base and was leaning against a tree in the old historic area of the cemetery. After researching and finding a family member I worked as liasion between the family, cemetery staff and the Veterans Administration and it was an honor for this biographer to procure a new military headstone for Sgt Hollingshead in 2008. djg
