Charles L. Templeton

Charles Templeton was born in deep East Texas in 1946. So deep, they had to pipe in the sunshine. His parents were nomads in the Mojave Desert in the fifties where Chuck Yeager taught him how to crush beer cans on his forehead. After being dismissed from the Copyle Lincoln Therapeutic Boarding School for Miscreant Teenage Girls, he attended Sherman High School in Sherman, TX. He was admitted to Austin College after promising to bring back all of the furniture that had disappeared from the office of the president. As the president of the college predicted, Charles found himself in the Marine Corps in 1967. Charles went aboard a Caribbean bound helicopter carrier with his squadron in the Spring of 1968 to prevent the insurgent Cuban communist guerillas from invading Florida. His squadron was so successful that Charles was promoted to corporal and received orders for Vietnam shortly afterward. Charles served as a Marine Corps helicopter crew chief in HMM-265 in Vietnam in 1968 – 69, where he earned his Air Crew wings and flew over 150 missions. He was promoted to Sergeant and received orders for the Presidential Helicopter Squadron when his squadron was ordered to stand down in 1969. Charles completed his B.A. at Austin College in Sherman, Texas, in 1973 and M.ED. from North Texas State Univ. in 1974 after paying off his excessive parking fines. After a career in education in Texas and becoming a hundredaire, Charles retired. He moved with the love of his life, Sandra, to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Charles has three adult daughters and five granddaughters who continue to bring joy, love, and headaches from laughter into his world. Charles still enjoys Bleu de Hue brownies, a Templetini, and listening to music from the Vietnam era. Life never seems to grow old, just his knees. Charles is still a voracious reader and lover of the written and wakes up every day, thankful for the gifts he has been given, and looking forward to whatever adventures the day brings. Knowing that whatever happens, it beats ‘shovelin’ shit in the south China Sea.
