Charles met his death almost instantly from direct enemy action while in the performance of his duty in Northern Italy. His death was caused by gunshot wounds from enemy small arms fire. He has been properly identified and, buried in one of our United States Military Cemeteries in Northern Italy in an accurately marked grave.  One of our Catholic chaplains conducted burial and commital services for him at the grave.  Charles was held in high regard by all members of the command.  He was a splendid soldier and of outstanding character. His loss is deeply felt by his many friends and associates. May God keep and rest his soul and help us to carry on the fight for him.  While there is no earthly compensation for the loss of your husband, we trust that our mutual faith in God and our way of life shall sustain us in our hours of bereavement. All the officers and men of the battalion join me in extending sympathy to you for the tremendous loss you have suffered.  May Almighty God in His infinite wisdom grant us victory so that such brave men as your husband shall not have died in vain."
Pfc. Bullick entered the service December 4. 1942, and took his basic training in the Signal Corps at Camp Crowder, Mo.  He arrived in Africa May 11, 1943 and was sent to Italy March, 1944.
