Remarks Erwin Derhaag provided me with several newspaper articles about Private First Class Schaube that can be seen below. Private First Class Schaube was a baseball player and he is listed at the website www.baseballsgreatestsacrifice.com. Quoted from that site:

Charles H. Schaube was born in Denton, Maryland in 1917. An outstanding young first baseman, Schaube had a tryout with the Dover Orioles of the Eastern Shore League in 1937 but was beaten out of the first base job by Paul Swoboda. He went on to play semi-pro baseball in the Mar-Del (Maryland-Delaware) League with Goldsboro, Greensboro and Denton. Over three seasons with the Denton club – 1940 to 1942 – his batting average was around .300. Schaube was working at Goldsborough Farms near Goldsboro, Delaware, when he entered service with the Army on October 15, 1942. The 25-year-old trained at Camp Lee in Virginia, Camp Atterbury in Indiana and Camp Breckenridge in Kentucky.
