As many of us know, Chuck first experienced combat in 1963 Vietnam as a B-26 Navigator and was awarded the Purple Heart during one of his 51 combat missions. Later, at Phu Cat AB, he flew the F-100 as Misty 75 and was awarded a Silver Star and several DFC’s. His third combat tour was with n the 55th “triple nickel” F-4 squadron he flew in the Christmas bombing for 12 days as an F-4 counter-air pilot (looking for MIGs) and providing protection for the B-52’s.
After retiring, Chuck owned a Beechcraft light and flew for various executive Jet companies in Las Vegas as a Learjet Pilot until December 2020!
Please keep Chuck and other members who are having health issues in your prayers. We know that there are a number of members who have received their COVID vaccinations and we hope that the rest of us are able to get our shots within the next few weeks.
