SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. Shepherds-town, W.Va., resident Charles H. Freeland didn't have a flight plan for his desire to become a pilot. But history had a hand in his achieving his dream. Sure to be drafted into service during World War II, Freeland got his mother to sign off on him joining the Army Air Corps at age 19 so he could pursue his dream of flying. Freeland's fascination with flight ranges from witnessing a U.S. Navy Zeppelin pass over his Cumberland, Md., home when he was 4 years old to flying cargo planes through combat zones during World War II. Often, friends, family and students asked Freeland about his experiences, telling him he should write them down, said Freeland, who taught education and media at Shepherd College.
