He would pick up wounded soldiers and medevac these soldiers out of Vietnam. Charles would fly them to safe areas to get treatment or to hospitals. He loved flying and more so loved his job in Vietnam. Charles was a true warrior, very patriotic and a very charismatic man. He was most kind and charitable. He also had a wonderful sense of humor. His laughter and his jokes were impressionable. He was also very witty when it came to discussing politics. He arrived at Fort Bliss around 1980, and was a helicopter instructor at Fort Bliss. Charles met his soon to be wife, Consuelo, nine years later in El Paso, Texas. Charles and Consuelo married in the Fort Bliss Chapel. After retiring from the Army, Charles resided in El Paso, Texas with his wife, Consuelo, before succumbing to the effects of Agent Orange in 2013.
