Hero of the Week

Charles Ardinger, US Navy

Charles Ardinger

My Military Hero is my husband.  He has been in the US Navy for 27 1/2 yrs and has dedicated his life to serving his country.  He is currently the Aircraft Handling Officer on the USS Enterprise, which just celebrated 50 yrs, and is going on its last deployment in March for 7 months.

No matter how hectic sea life gets out there he always makes sure that thanks and praise are given to his team members and not just himself.  He has many many friends in the Navy family and for as long as I have been with him I have never ever heard anyone say anything but great things about him.

He always makes sure when he deploys that I am well taken care of by his friends here and his own family that lives in Iowa.  He is a very caring and loving man and always tries to make everyone happy and will go out of his way to help someone in need.  His smile and personality can light up a room and he is someone that you will never forget.  He is my soulmate, my best friend and my military hero!!!
