Profile: What Can One Person Do? Meet Charlie Black

By Remy Benoit

    You won't find Charlie on the shelf with Hemingway, or Proust, or Joyce, or Wolfe.

    You will find Charlie at Silver Spurs - A Troop, 3/17th Air Cav - Special Feature
   The publisher of the Ledger-Inquirer of Columbus, Georgia, a World War I Colonel named Maynard Ashworth,gave Charlie a round trip ticket to the war, and $500.

   Charlie was told to stay in Vietnam as long as the money held, and to explain to the folks back home what he saw; what was happening to our people in country.

   Please see Chicken Soup for the Writer's Soul and the story about Charlie by Marvin J. Wolf.Chicken Soup for the Writer's Soul.

   You may see some of Charlie's articles at Charlie Black.
