Freedom Fighters: Charlie Chef

Posted: Updated:
TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Charlie Chef volunteered for one of the most dangerous raids of World War Two. 

The mission is called "the Raid at Cabanatuan" in the Philippine Islands. Five hundred Allied prisoners of War and civilians who had survived the brutal Bataan Death March were freed in a thirty minute, coordinated attack.

Chef considers helping to free the prisoners was "the best thing he ever did."
