The reason is simple: From 1945 to 1949, Charlie—a former Omega Health Care patient—served in the Army’s 4th Armored Division in Germany, where he met and married his wife of 42 years, Greta. She was a German nurse returning from a prisoner of war camp in Russia after the war when Charlie met her, and what a meeting it was. Charlie actually saved Greta’s life by shooting a Russian soldier who had wounded her and was attempting to kill her.
