c++ - iostream trouble

I'm writing a very basic io function one for loading and one for saving.

Load:

   fstream infile;

   infile.open (szFile, fstream::in );

 // All variables go here

infile.getline(szName,40) ;
infile.getline(szRace,30) ;
infile.getline(szSex,10) ;


Save:

   fstream outfile;

   outfile.open (szFile, fstream::out );

 // All variables go here


outfile << szName  << endl;
outfile << szRace   << endl;
outfile << szSex   << endl;
outfile << szHandeness   << endl;
outfile << szBirthCircumstance   << endl;
outfile << szLegit   << endl;


The problem I have is that szName loads properly, but the next variable
(szRace)ends up loading the string for szLegit minus the first character!

What the heck am I doing wrong?

Thanks
