It is with deep regret that we announce that Colonel (Ret) Charles L. Brindel one of our regular members passed away on April 4, 2018 at the age of 88.
“Charlie” was a loyal and active member of our chapter for many years, having served as its President in 1980 and as the Personal Affairs Officer for three years (2010-2013). He was a strong patron of the chapter’s ROTC Scholarship Awards Program, and an avid participant in its annual fundraising golf tournament.
Charlie served on active duty for 32 years to include combat service in Vietnam where he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross. Charlie was inducted into the Infantry Officer Candidate School Hall of Fame in 1971. He will be interred at the Sandhills State Veterans Cemetery with full military honors on April 11, 2018.
The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, that donations be made to the Cape Fear Chapter, MOAA ROTC Scholarship Fund. Checks should be made payable to: “CFC, MOAA” and mailed to: Cape Fear Chapter, MOAA, ATTN: Brindel Memoriam, P.O .Box 53621, Fayetteville, NC 28305; donations are tax-deductible.
Our heartfelt condolences are extended to the extended Brindel family during their bereavement.
