    During World War II, Charlie was a warrant officer with the US Army, with a combat engineer MOS. While stationed in England, he was given an office on the second floor of this garage in Chipping Norton, where he worked until his unit joined the invasion forces going into France and Germany. After that, he worked to rebuild the bridges that the Germans were destroying during their retreat back into Germany.

    When we visited England and Wales in 2002, he asked us to find the garage in Chipping Norton and see if it was still standing, and take a picture of it if we could find it -- which we did.
