wonderful friend

sometimes you have the privilege of becoming friends with someone very special. Corky was one such person. We met after I moved to Steger from So. Chi Hgts at 14 years old. We went through Bloom High School together; played some ball at local parks; sat around and just talked. We always enjoyed each other's company. I thonk of Corky often. He was the kind of person you always were happy to see. Never had a cross word or anything close to that from each other. I thank God for our friendship and his service. I will see him again and that makes me smile through the sadness of missing him. God blessed us with Corky sharing his life with us.

A Really Crazy Guy

Corky & I graduated from Bloom THS in Chicago Heights, IL in 1966. He lived in Steger, IL & I lived in South Chicago
Heights, IL which was the first community north of Steger.
We both served in the Vietnam War. Corky made me laugh as much as anyone that I've ever known, & was an original in so many good ways. I can't think of him without a smile surfacing. I'm a disabled veteran while Corky paid the ultimate price. I know that God is taking good care of him, and that all of those who are around him in heaven are enjoying his presence. May God continue to bless you Corky. You continue to touch those who knew you & love you.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CWO Clark Russell Pedersen, 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

Remembrance

Clark was the only son of my parents. The only brother to my sister and me. The years have passed since we last saw him but his memory and our love for him will forever live within our hearts. His proudest day was when he graduated from flight school and received his wings. He was now an 'Army Aviator'. 'For those who have to fight for it, life has a flavor the protected will never know.'
