    Dear Sp5 Jack Clemmons,
    I hope your photo is put here because this is a wall of faces and yours is missing. Thank you for your service as a Flight Qualified Infantryman with the 1st Cavalry. December has begun, along with all the preparations. It is so important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

  • Final Mission of SP5 Jack E. Clemmons

    Posted on 5/13/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    SP5 Jack E. Clemmons was a crew chief on a C&C Huey. The helicopter had landed in a quiet area so that COL Mertel and his staff could spend some time with the troops while the aircraft went to refuel. While the aircraft was on the ground, the crew was asked if they would take a wounded soldier back with them to base. Jack had gotten out of the aircraft and was helping the wounded man when the enemy opened up on them from a hill about 200 meters away. He was hit in the back in the initial attack. Though the helicopter was taking many hits (28 were counted later--one through the combustion chamber), the crew remained on the ground while some soldiers put Jack into the helicopter. Unfortunately, Jack was dead by the time they could get to the nearest aid station. (Information supplied by R. Ehmann, aircraft commander on the mission) [Taken from flying-circus.com]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP5 Jack Elliott Clemmons, 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

  • NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

    Posted on 10/14/03 - by Chris Spencer cws71354@bellsouth.net
    It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
