CHARLES J. WESCHLER, LT, USN
Charles Weschler '32
Date of birth: July 9, 1909
Date of death: January 16, 1945
From the 1932 Lucky Bag:
Charles was Regimental Sub-Commander.
Charles was lost while a Prisoner of War… but it is unclear exactly when or how. The Manila American Cemetery and Memorial and this list have him aboard the Brazil Maru POW ship, perishing on January 16, 1945. However, this other list of POWs has his date of death as December 15, 1944.
The April 1, 1941 Navy Directory lists his station as the 16th Naval District, Cavite, Philippines.
The great cabin aboard SSV Oliver Hazard Perry is named for Charles.
