    This was a boyhood friend of mine from long ago "1940's" i wanted the people on here to see what he accomplished and he did it all on his own, I grew up with his whole family in The Cambridgeport section of Cambridge Ma (greasy village) he was as we used to say "a good kid"

    I had to bump this, this guy did this all on his own and he will probably go down somewhere in a history book, I hopped trucks with him, I swam naked with him off the BU Bridge Trestle, I am very proud of him as were all the guys on our corner he was one of us we were all poor, we were all on welfare together during the depression, we all went home to cold apartments and ate corn flakes for sunday dinner, I knew and hung around with his brothers, Charlie never whined or blubbered he did this all on his own, he sat at my table and ate with my family shortly after I was married, then he took off like rocket, nobody handed Charlie anything for nothing, he wouldn't have taken it anyway.
    RIP Charlie (you know who)
