CHARLES TANK IN HIS EARLY YEARS

The newspaper picture of a young Charles Tank being awarded with a model rowing boat from the Ecorse Mayor of that time, came from The Detroit Times, circa 1950. The caption for the clipping reads as follows:

Ecorse Mayor William Voisine showing Charlie Tank 6, the model shell that builder Jim Cameron made for him as a homecoming gift from Ecorse Boat Club.

The news article was submitted by Ecorse area author Kathy Warnes. Kathy pointed out that Charles' younger cousin Philip Tank also died in Vietnam. The Ecorse rowing team had championship years in the 1940s. The fathers of Charles Tank, Philip Tank, and Kathy Warnes, all belonged to those teams.
