He then followed his long-time dream of joining the US Military as a Marine, where he proudly served as part of the decorated 10th Marines Artillery Regiment. He served in the First Persian Gulf War in the amphibious forces. Charles enjoyed writing with a specialty in military strategy, and additional interest in WW2 history.
