I have known Charlie as long as I can remember. He always seemed to do things his own way but I can't remember him ever giving up. I think that many people didn't understand this and they gave him a hard time. He never let it get to him. I can't remember him saying anything mean or fighting back. He took anything that was thrown at himself and used it to become a strong person. I am proud of all he accomplished, and Charlie and his "family" will remain in my thoughts.

I don't pretend to know what to say or do that would bring you peace in your time of sorrow, but I will offer my heart felt condolences. I also offer you my prayers that in time the pain will easy and the memories of your HERO will carry you through each day and night. I want to thank your HERO, for his/her selfless act of becoming a member of the armed forces, his/her willingness to defend the United States of America, all that we hold sacred and for the sacrifice that will forever be etched in the memories of all those who knew him/her. Though tears can never bring him/her back, we hope that our tears express our gratitude for the sacrifice that he/she made and our sorrow at his/her passing. I believe for every fallen HERO there is a star shining brightly up above to remind us of the precious gift we were given.

Your mission on earth is complete and you are now a member of GOD’s Heavenly armed forces. Stand down brave warrior and take your rightful place in Heaven with all the HEROES who have passed before.

I made a special promise to LE RON A. WILSON (KIA on 07/06/07) on the day he was laid to rest as I touched his coffin, that I would never forget him nor would I forget those that gave their lives for our country before him, with him and after him and so when I came across www.legacy.com, I thought what a great way to keep my promise to Le Ron, so I will continue to leave tributes in each guest book until the day there is no longer the need to leave these tributes to a FALLEN HERO.

REST IN PEACE, HERO, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!

My Deepest and Most Heartfelt Sympathy goes out to the family of Pfc. Charles T. Heinlein, with a Multitude of Thanks for this Brave Young Soldier's Courage, Dedication and Service to our Country and for Freedom.

The price Charles and his family have paid, Will Never Be Forgotten. May he Rest Safely, in God's Care and may the Peace of God be with the Heinlein family.
I am the Sister of such a young hero, who made the Ultimate Sacrifice in Vietnam, many years ago

"Surely He hath borne our grief,
and carried our sorrows."

May you find comfort and strength, in the beautiful memories of times spent with Charles and quietly and gently, may healing come, with each new day.
You are in my thoughts and my prayers

I remember all the times that Charlie visited in our home. He never came or went without giving me a hug and a kiss. He called me "mom" and that was fine with me. There was something about him that just touched my heart.

Charlie was truly a multi-facted personality. He could try the patience of a saint with his love of arguing "just for the sake of arguing" and then make you laugh with his quick wit and ready smile.

I will always remember the way that Charlie used to come up behind me in the grocery store (or wherever he would see me) when I didn't know that he was there and give me a hug and a kiss. He would laugh because he surprised me. But it got so that I wasn't even startled and would just know that it was him.

When he told me that he was going to join the Army, I tried to talk him out of his decision. I wanted to make sure that he had really thought hard about the path that he was choosing. For every reason or argument that I came up with to try to dissuade him, he had a counter reason or argument. Ultimately he convinced me that he had made his decision with his eyes open and was determined to go forward no matter what.

Charlie had determination and the courage of his convictions. He was not easily shaken in his beliefs. I'm proud of him for that.

I will miss him and always remember him with love.
