Personal History:

     Having been born 3 months after the death of his "namesake" oldest brother Charley has spent all his life hearing "you are our second chance", "you need to be more like Paddy", and "you have to live up to him." from his mother. Charley  was doomed to rebel. The military arms of the marines seem the perfect juxtaposition of the professional academics preferred by his mother and Steven, and the scientific fields chosen by his father and Jeff. Since choosing to attend the Cape Fear Military Primary, to Horror and dismay of his parents, Charley has striven to forge his own path. As reported from the dean of students at Cape Fear. “Charley has been an average student, and average cadet, with no real disciplinary problems, just a few misunderstood pranks. Charley has excelled at sand table problems, and proven to be very effective with platoon and company size units.  Balancing this out is the fact that many, many hours of tutoring were needed to give Charley the ability to pass physics and quantum mathematics. Charley was on the school soccer team for 4 years, it cannot be said that he was an outstanding player, but he is a solid team player that will be missed after graduation. Charley has been close friends with Cadet G.A. Roessel and Cadet R.J. Kantowski, teammates from the soccer team.” Contact with parents has been limited and non-existent with his brothers since leaving home.
