He and his son were living in a tent for several months before receiving help from Unhoused Humanity. Charles had a steady monthly income from The Department of Veteran Affairs for his time served in Vietnam. All he needed was help with the upfront costs of moving back into a home (security and utility deposit).
Charles is from Vernon, FL and is 60 years old. He is an extremely kind and humble gentleman. Charles absolutely loves classic rock and his favorite song is “Green River” by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Charles believes that music is all about the memories that are associated with it. He says the song was playing in the helicopter as he landed for the first time in Danang, Vietnam. Charles does suffer from PTSD but is doing all he can to move forward and keep on pushing.
