Charles ?Chuck' Baldwin (left), a member of the Delaware Commission of Veterans Affairs, presented a check for $2,700 to Dave Skocik for the Delaware Veterans Trust Fund on Nov. 21. The check represented the initial proceeds of his recent book "Carrier to Classroom," which details management lessons learned during a 28-year career in the U.S. Navy followed by years of experience in education management. Mr. Baldwin, a retired Navy command master chief, served as the top enlisted man on the 5,500 member crew of the nuclear powered aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69). He later served as principal of Wilmington Charter School and in 2003 founded the Delaware Military Academy, a charter school whose students participate in Navy Jr. ROTC. In 2011 Mr. Baldwin served on the founding committee of the Delaware Military Academy, whose students participate in Marine Jr. ROTC. His book is available on Amazon.com. The check represented the amount earned as of Nov. 21. Mr. Baldwin has pledged to contribute the ongoing proceeds of his book to the Trust Fund, which was created in 2013 to assist Delaware's veterans in financial emergency with a one-time, hand-up grant. It has prevented cut off of utilities, repossessions of property, evictions, and sometimes put food on the table. Contributions are tax deductible.
