Charles’s parents received a postcard in the mail for a free uniform and a week of taekwondo lessons…and he has stuck with the discipline ever since. He made the Junior National Team in 2013, and had won the USA Taekwondo and AAU National Championship by the time he joined the Army. His WCAP experience has included continued high-echelon success, including a first place finish at the 2017 USA Taekwondo National Championships in Detroit.

The Army has given me the opportunity to do the sport I love. I am very grateful.
