Charles J.Ingerson aka The Old Rusty Knight (ORK):
Chuck has been many things in this life - sailor, soldier, writer, teacher, hunter, athlete, speaker, business owner, Contracting Officer (Dept. of Navy), and much more.
He began writing poetry and prose in the mid-1950's, as well as drawing and designing new trends in clothing, and
developing potential entrepreneurial business ventures.
Despite this wide-ranging creativity, he felt the desire to serve his country and joined the USN in
1962 and has served his nation in the world of Intel ever since. He completed his
active service in the US Army Reserves serving ten years as a Senior
Instructor in the NCO Academy, specializing in leadership and NBC warfare, helping to train the next generation of
NCO's with several Instructor Specialties.
Wildlife photography is a hobby that he spends much of his time with now. Often he combines his
favorite photos with his writings.
Currently, Chuck lives in Coastal South East GA with his beloved bride of 40 years, Joyce, and enjoys the many spontaneous visits from both of their sons and their
families while they pursue further university educations.
