His duty assignments included Alaska, Korea, Vietnam, Germany, New Mexico, and both Maxwell and Gunter Air Force Bases. He retired as a MSgt in August 1974.

He worked tirelessly on many political campaigns for conservative candidates who favored the people of these areas and their interests. A loving, caring, sharing person, Charles had a unique flair for making everyone feel welcome in his presence. Regardless of how a person met him, the result was often a long-lasting friendship. The epitome of the Good Samaritan, a friend could always count on Charles. Well done, thou good and faithful servant. . . Matthew 25:21
