Born and raised in Macon, Georgia, Charlie joined the U.S. Navy at the age of 19. He completed the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL course Class 176 and checked into his very first SEAL Team, (SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team-2) where he underwent 3 deployments, and eventually served as a SEAL Delivery Vehicle Instructor.
Shortly after receiving orders to SEAL team 5, Charlie and his wife were involved in a tragic car accident where his wife was killed, and he was badly injured. Due to his injuries, he was offered medical retirement and was told he wouldn’t be able to perform duties as a SEAL ever again. But despite the upsets and challenges, he never lost courage and hope.
He overcame his injuries and became the Leading Chief Petty Officer of Sniper School. He went on two deployments as part of SEAL Team-5, and ultimately received the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Sailor of the Quarter, Sailor of the Year for all SEAL Teams, and Runner Up for PACIFIC-FLEET SOY.
Charlie served as the Operations Leading Chief Petty Officer of the Naval Special Warfare Unit-1 and was in charge of 14 Southeast Asian Countries. Later, he served as SEAL Team-1 Troop Chief and retired as Senior Chief Petty Officer in 2015. Since his retirement he opened Charlie Mike Precision, a Tactical Force Company Specializing in Long Range Rifle Shooting, Pistol-Carbine Courses, and Elite Expeditions.
