Boy Scouts Honor Whitesboro Hero Charlie Baum
“Life is good. I do not harbor any animosity for the things that happened to me. Would I do it all again? Yes, I sure would. We’re the luckiest people on earth. You’ve got to go through something to appreciate it.” ~~ Charlie Baum
These words seem surprising coming from the man that enlisted voluntarily in the Army Air Corps, endured the 100 mile Bataan Death March, survived forty-two months as a prisoner of war, and weighed eighty-six pounds when he was freed. Whitesboro native Charles Baum, World War II veteran, was the epitome of honor, courage, valor, and fortitude. Lest the sacrifice of this hero be forgotten, a local Boy Scout is on a mission to create a lasting memorial to Mr. Baum.
