Charles is retired from the U.S. Army where he served as a Chaplain – serving as a supervisory Chaplain for several major commands having responsibilities for thousands of troops. As a minister, he is considered as “self-employed.”   He also has an earned doctorate specializing in correct conduct, emphasizing a word often lost in conversation, “ethics”.  While not mentoring Veterans in business, he is set to offer advice which will help answer such questions as “what should I do and what should I not do – how can I make adjustments to a civilian world and it’s demands and what is the correct response?”  Often the environment of the civilian world is totally different  from the military world, and being able to make the correct decisions may determine the success or failure of the business venture
