During World War II, Lindberg rose to the rank of Brigadier General in the U.S. Army Army Corps and later augmented to the USAF with that same rank. During WWII, Lindbergh specifically requested Pacific Theather assignments only, since he had been a large supporter and admirer of Germany in the 1930s.
His eldest child, 20 month old, Charles Lindbergh, Jr. ("The Eaglet") was kidnapped on the night of March 1, 1932, near Hopewell, New Jersey.
