Chuck proudly dedicated 20 years of his life to military service of this country. He achieved the rank of CW3 Warrant Officer as a helicopter pilot and flew countless missions during the Vietnam War, receiving numerous commendations including the Bronze Star and the Distinguished Flying Cross. After his retirement from the U.S. Army, he began a new fifteen year career as an electrician until retirement.
