We welcome Charles Sterns, who is a relatively new resident to The Arbors at Hauppauge community. Charles is a veteran and served in the U.S. Air Force. Apart from the strategic Air Command, Charles flew B52s and worked with KC135 tankers during the Korean War. Charles was born and raised in Athens, New York. It was here where his passion for flying started. His family owned the local airport in Athens, so Charles was surrounded by planes as a child. After graduating flight school, Charles became a flight engineer and worked at Lockheed Aircraft and then Air Research Aviation for 18yrs. Charles has traveled all over the world and partnered with a friend to start a airplane maintenance business in Johannesburg, South Africa. Charles wed his highschool sweetheart Anne and settled down in Dix Hills with their 5 children. Thank you Charles for your service.
