Birth: unknown
Death: Nov. 13, 1942, At Sea

Son of Charles William Bailey, Sr. who resided in Rye, New York.

Charles served as a Seaman First Class, U.S.S. Juneau (CL-52), U.S. Navy during World War II.

He resided in Westchester County, New York prior to the war.

Charles was declared "Missing In Action" in the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal during the war.

The Juneau, in the early morning hours in near pitch darkness, was first struck on the port side by a torpedo causing a severe list. The Juneau, once dawn broke, then tried to return to Espiritu Santo for repairs along with the battle damaged U.S.S. Helena and U.S.S. San Francisco, when the Juneau was again hit by a torpedo from Japanese I-26 causing her to sink.

He was awarded the Purple Heart.

Chuck (as he was known to my grandparents) was a friend of both of them back in Rye, NY. They never forgot him. They talked with us grandkids about him up until their own deaths.
