You are not forgotten and remain in the hearts of many after all these years. Thank you Charles for being who you were and for all you did. We live in freedom to this day thanks to heroes like you that answer the call to duty.
You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor Charles.

Remembering An American HeroPosted on 11/7/13 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear WO Charles Edward Sellner, sirMORE
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
