Charles registered for the draft on 1 July 1941 in Los
Angeles, CA. He was inducted into the Army on 5 December 1941,
just 2 days prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor.
On 5 August 1944, Pvt Burr was transferred from the 82d
Airborne Division Leicester, England to Company F, 508th PIR.
Remarkably, just 5 weeks later, on 13 September he was
sent back to the 82nd and did not return to the regiment.
He was discharged on 15 December 1945.
