Charles served in the U.S. Army during the Spanish-American War, both in Cuba and in the Philippines. He served as a member of the Manila Police Department for several years after his honorable discharge from the Army at the rank of Sergeant.
A religious man, he joined The Salvation Army in San Francisco, California, and remained a faithful soldier of that organization all his life. His headstone reads, "Sergeant Major Charles Sholin," which is a Salvation Army non-commissioned offer rank.
Charlie had his own manufacturing business at which he made wooden goods, such as scrubbing boards, folding chairs and ironing boards. He designed and built some rather elaborate equipment for that business, including crimping machine for the metal part of his scrubbing boards. He even obtained a patent for his invention of a mountable scrub board.
Unfortunately for him, the washing machine was just coming into use at that time, which did away with the need for the mountable scrub board. Still, his capacity for building things himself and coming up with new ideas was evident in this patent and the equipment he put together for his own business.
