Charles Van Ark

Per Charles request his personal information has been removed. For contact information please call John Quintrell

The guys affectionately called Charles “Hedgy”. He got that name because he had a habit of walking through hedge rows while on patrols. We always warned him he was going to step on a booby trap and as luck would have it he tripped one on the night of January 1, 1969. None of us will forget that night as the medivac came in to pick Charlie up, We were all scared that the NVA would RPG the chopper ot that the chopper would set off other booby traps in the area. Charlie is an independent contractor for General Motors and he programs the computer systems that runs GM engines, So…if you are disatisfied with your gas mileage call Charlie!!
