Like the many thousands of brave, young Americans who served during World War II, Pfc. Charles Williams, Jr. made the supreme sacrifice for his country and for those who could not fight for themselves.

He was killed in action on November 8, 1944 near the small German village of Schmidt and was subsequently laid to rest in Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery and Memorial in Belgium.

As a personal remembrance of his life, his military service and his untimely death at the age of 23 years, his nephew, Kevin D. Klump, produced a moving documentary for his family in Charles’ honor.

Now, nearly 67 years after his death, Charles’ story will be told to millions of viewers. “Charles - A Tribute” not only pays homage to a fallen family member, but it also remembers ALL families who lost a loved one during one of the most tragic and poignant times in our country’s history.

Please join me for a touching look into the life and death of a young man who fell in defense of his country and the freedoms of others.... my Uncle Charles.
