" This record is a Cenotaph In His honor ! "

Charles, who resided at 218 West Seventeenth Street, Wilmington, Delaware, served as a Technical Sergeant with the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II.

He was born with the name " Charles Kenneth GOLDSTEIN " however when he and his brother, Gordon Morris Goldstein, joined the Army they " both " changed their last name to " GORDONI " more than likely due to possibly being captured by the German Army during the war since " Gordoni " was an Italian name instead of a Jewish name.

His brother also changed his " entire name " from " Gordon Morris Goldstein " to " Don Maurice Gordoni ".


He enlisted in the Army on November 7, 1942 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was noted, at the time of his enlistment, as Single, without dependents.

He was "Killed In Action" while serving as a radio operator in a bomber over Flensburg, Germany.

He served with the Air Corps for nine months at the time of his death.

His brother, Gordon Morris Goldstein, was also "Killed In Action" during the war.

Son of Nathan Goldstein and Lillian Abramson Goldstein.
