LTC Charles (Chuck) Whitzel

LTC Charles (Chuck) WhitzelWhitzel- Baghdad

I served 26 years in the United States Air Force. During the last five years of my military career, I had the distinct honor of serving in Joint environments with amazing professionals from each service. It was during this time that deployed to Mosul, Iraq, to provide support to the 2nd Infantry Division. I consider serving with Soldiers in a war zone the highlight of my military career. After retiring, I began work with the Joint IED Defeat Organization and later the U.S. Army Rapid Equipping Force. Both positions gave me opportunities to help mitigate threats experienced by deployed Soldiers allowing them to operate in hazardous areas. I consider my time with and in support of Soldiers a distinct honor. I remain an Airman proud to serve our nation’s Soldiers. (Return to “Why my brick?” Testimonial Page.)Whitzel- Mosul
