  • Remembering Chuck from college days

    Posted on 3/29/16 - by Jim McMillan
    Lt. Charles W. Sharman, III was known to freshmen at Presbyterian College in Clinton, S.C. as "Chuck". He was on the Freshman Control Board and hard as nails on the freshmen being initiated into the student population. We had a lot of fun during the two weeks of "Rat Season". I remember when we were informed of Chuck's loss in Vietnam! I will never forget him. Thanks Chuck for serving your country.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear 1LT Charles W Sharman III, sir

    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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Though I was born well after Chuck had been killed...he has lived on through my dad's stories. He and my dad were best friends and college roommates and if any of you that served with him happen upon this site - please e-mail me at
    Though I never had a chance to meet him, I know him through the memories that have been shared. I know he was a fine man and a fine Marine! Gone but NEVER forgotten!

    I was there on that fateful day. I have never been able to contact Bill's family to tell them that he was the best Officer I ever had. To this day, all those that survived, remember him as an Officer of Honor and Distinction. He was a leader and a friend that I will miss till the end.
  • Thank you Lieutenant Sharman

    Chuck Sharman was one of the finest young men in 1st Reconnaissance Battalion. He was highly respected and admired by his men and fellow officers. His potential for contributions to his country were unlimited. His loss is America's loss.
