  • Final Mission of SP4 Kendall H. Clark

    Posted on 8/19/17 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On February 22, 1968, A Company, 1st Battalion, 16th Infantry, 1st Infantry Division, was conducting a search and destroy mission out of Di An in and around Phu Loi, Thuc Duc and Lai Thieu in Binh Duong Province, RVN. During the operation, A Company made contact with the enemy on several occasions. Near Di An, the company became engaged in a firefight with Viet Cong insurgents which resulted in five members of A Company being killed and three others wounded. Twelve Viet Cong were killed in the encounter. The lost Americans included CPT Loyd M. Wilson, 1LT Edward L. Worthington, 2LT David J. Cavis, SGT Theodore Coaxum, and SP4 Kendall H. Clark.

    SPC Kendall Clark,

    Sir,

    Although we never met, I must share with you the positive, profound impact you had on my life. I am a 1975 graduate of our beloved EHS Pirates. I knew of you heroic story from your family and decided to join the Army following high school. I retired after 29 yrs of service and think of your sacrifice to your country, home town, family and friends often.

    Stand at ease soldier, your mission is over. Job well done. Rest in Gods loving arms.... you've earned it.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 Kendall Hanson Clark, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
