Charles served as a First Lieutenant and Co-Pilot on C-47A #42-23870, 54th Troop Carrier Squadron, U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II.

He resided in Androscoggin County, Maine prior to the war.

C-47A #42-23870 took off, with a crew of 4 & 5 passengers, from Cape Field, Fort Glen, Alaska on a transport mission to Shemya Island, Aleutian Islands, Alaska. They were last heard from by radio as being approximately 30 miles west of Fort Glenn. After that radio contact they were not seen nor heard from again and believed to have crashed at sea due to severe weather turbulence in the area.

Charles was declared "Missing In Action" in this crash during the war.

Service # O-827730
