Not sure what to say?

I went to school with Chuck in Ninilchik, Alaska. Practiced basketball with him. He was a little older than me. Always a gentleman. Visited with him years later when I was living in Manhattan, Kansas, and he was stationed nearby at Fort Riley.

Charles "Chuck" F. Hawkins

I met Chuck Hawkins when he was stationed at Fort Riley. We went skiing at Winter Park in Colorado and hunted pheasants many times in Kansas. I will miss my friend.

Was a close friend from early 1960s, many hours together in college classes, slogging through Florida Swamps in Army Ranger School, serving together after our time in VN and ultimately as defense contractors all across Asia. Chuck was a great soldier and a finer man. He cut a wide swath and is missed.
R.I.P. Warrior!

Bless you old friend. May you rest in the arms of our Lord.

Chuck was a giant among men. Lived next to me in Manhattan, KS in the mid 70s. I visited his homestead two or three years ago and fished. Great guy with a broad view in things China. Will miss him. Chuck Jones '68

Carla and I had a great time staying with you on the Homestead in Ninilchik. We will always remember you. Joe Henry '68

Currahee Brother! We salute you for the leader and inspirational person that you are. You will be missed at our reunions and Ft. Campbell events. Job well done! Rest in peace Bro, you earned it.

Sad to hear of the passing of Capt. Charles Hawkins. He battled through the siege of FSB Ripcord in 1970 and was an inspiration to the men under his command. As a Vietnam Veteran and former member of the 101st Airborne Division, I salute this fine gentleman. Rest in peace.
