Charles "Charlie" Edward Ziehl - August 4, 1941 - March 13, 2017

It is with deep sadness that the NASAA board announces the passing of long time board member "Charlie" Ziehl.    He passed away at his home in Tawas City, Michigan after a long illness.  Full military honors took place at the memorial service after the funeral ceremony on Friday, 3/17/2017.  Charlie served in the ASA from 1959 to 1962.  In his own words he recounted that "after being given the "ASA speech" I was "Volunteered" into the ASA. We shipped out to Frankfurt, Germany, where we stayed a couple of weeks, and then we were assigned to ASA Units throughout Germany, I and some others were sent to 507th USASA Gp in Heilbronn, Germany. I worked in the Message Center, sending and receiving hard copy material; I moved to Baumholder in the summer of 61, and was OJT'ed as a 980 then as a 982 . . . or at least given the MOS! I returned to the USA in August of 62.  Civilian life brought a list of jobs: glass cutter, construction laborer, cement finisher, and finally, meat cutter for Kroger Co. I quit there in 73 to work with my father and mother in the Greenhouse/Landscaping business. In 1992, my wife and I purchased the business."  Charlie is survived by his loving wife Diane, two sons and four grand children.  He will truly be missed by so many who had the honor and privilege to know him over the years.

The NASAA supports the Veteran's Welcome Home and Resource Center.  Mission Statement:  "This center is a non-profit organization, incorporated in South Carolina. The center is not affiliated with any government agency, including the Veterans Administration. Sponsored by VFW Post 10804 (Little River, SC), the center was established for the sole purpose of providing veterans with much needed assistance in learning about and applying for benefits due to each individual veteran."  "Any veteran, from any era and branch of service will be welcomed and receive services."



The ASA did NOT die in 1976. The US Army Reserve kept ASA alive and well (and wore the ASA patch) until the late 80's. The USAR even continued to fly ASA type aviation missions.
