Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Cecil James Clack, 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

FATHER, BLESS THIS BRAVE SOLDIER

PFC CECIL JAMES CLACK, USA
1st Battalion, 35th Infantry, 4th Infantry Division

Jimmy, it is, and was, with deep heart felt sadness that we accept your loss.

A grateful nation weeps and mourns for you and your soul and thanks you for your unselfish service that was devoted to keeping all of us free.

We honor your service to mankind which you demonstrated through
dedicated efforts at liberating oppressed people around the World.

WITH BOTH GRATITUDE AND GREAT SADNESS WE SALUTE YOUR ULTIMATE SACRIFICE given on 1 January 1969 while crossing the Seesan River in the Province of Pleiku, South Vietnam near the Cambodian border.

For those that fought for it, freedom has a taste and a meaning which the protected will never know.

We pray that God is with you and with your family.


Jimmy, down through the years I have wept many tears over your loss and will continue to. Those who have served understand, those that have not try to.

I still remember the days of our youth spent mostly in your back yard with you, Rachael, Jerry Darby, Tommy Clack, John Moody, Jimmy Bailey, Terry Paul, and I doing those crazy things that only the young and innocent do while living and growing. Man, did we have some fun during that period of our lives in which we felt invincible. Jimmy, those of us younger than you looked to you for guidance and inspiration in everything that we did.

But too soon you were taken from us and those who knew and loved you did not get to see you grow past that young and innocent age. And now, we do not have you physically in our lives to sit and talk with in our later years.

But Jimmy, know this, you are still with us and always will be with us.

Senior Chief Cryptologic Technician Technical R.D. Chuck Starnes, USN (Ret)


THE ARMY SONG

First to fight for the right,
And to build the Nations might,
And The Army Goes Rolling Along
Proud of all we have done,
Fighting till the battles won,
And the Army Goes Rolling Along.

Then its Hi! Hi! Hey!
The Armys on its way.
Count off the cadence loud and strong
For where eer we go,
You will always know
That The Army Goes Rolling Along.
