Friday was our sons, Charles O Palmer II, 46th birthday. Happy
Birthday Son. We moved to Manteca 1979, Charles was 8 years old. He
attended Shasta Elementary, then on to Lincoln Middle School, and on to Manteca
High School. Charles liked to be involved with sports: Track and Field, weight
lifting, wrestling, and more. He was proud to have been on the MHS Football
Charles was a member of Students in Prevention (SIP). He went to Camp La Honda to assist the disabled while “camping” for two summers in a row. Additionally, he was in the MHS Band. Getting to go to Hawaii to play with the band at the Pro-Bowl Football game.
Based on the comments from students and friends that also attended MHS, Charles was well liked. But then, he felt called to do something bigger than himself, so he joined US Marine Corps 1992. During his first enlistment, Charles was sent to Kuwait during the Gulf War and when he left active duty, he stayed in the reserves until his friends were being sent to the Middle East in the War on Terror. Charles signed up to go back to active duty. He was 36 years old when he went to Iraq. KIA 5 May 2007.
Many have sent Birthday wishes to us for Charles. I know that our son would be touched by the out pouring of caring. The Palmer Family would like to extend our Thanks for remembering Charles – Never Forgotten at 46.
