In Memoriam: Chuck Schantag

Unto the members of SOCNET:

I bring sad news. Chuck Schantag, former Vietnam Marine,
Purple Heart Recipient, and CEO of Pownetwork.org has
passed away today.

He was out doing a shooting activity when he suffered
a fatal heart attack. The LifeFlight paramedics were unable
to revive him when called to the scene.

The Schantags were relentless in ferreting out military
frauds and phonies. Their website has been THE go to place
for getting reports on phonies published. Their dedication to
the cause of preserving the honor of military awards were
admired by many and earned the ire of phonies and frauds
the world over.

Chuck will be missed. Semper Fi! Let the guards of the
gates of heaven stand aside and announce another
warrior has joined them who served our country
with honor.

I will post more as I talk with Former Navy SEAL Steve
Robinson as he keeps me informed.

Respectfully,
Esquire
Former Navy ET2

Very sad news. He does great work to protect the honor of all Military Man who have earned it.

Thank you for all your hard and good work Mr. Schantag. Now back to drinking with your long lost Brothers-in-Arms in the Great Hall- especially the one who causes you to start your important crusade of POW network.

Respectfully,

I contacted the Shangtags concerning a very close friend of my fathers (at age 17) regarding his status as a POW during the Korean War and was pleasantly surprised he was very much the real deal. What a great service and legacy they/he has provided. My father and his high school friend are now in continual contact. It was assumed he had been "missing in action" but was really "missing" in California instead of his home in SC for the last 5 plus decades.

Repatriated after the war. RG

RIP Sir
