Chief Warrant Officer 5 Charles Petrie, an Army officer who has given almost 30 years to his country and is now terminally ill, watches as Soldiers, retirees, and civilians help him and his family move from their large rental home to a smaller home they recently purchased. Petrie was diagnosed with sarcoma in his sinus -- one of the rarest forms of cancer and in the rarest place, according to his wife, Terri. Despite multiple, large radiation treatments that shrank the tumor, the cancer is growing again. After being contacted by someone close to the family, U.S Army W.T.F! Moments took action by posting a message to their Facebook audience of more than 328,000 people. Approximately 100 Soldiers, retirees, and civilians showed up to help a fellow soldier in need, Sept. 27, 2013, at a home in Fayetteville, N.C.
