Army PFC Roosevelt Clark Laid to Rest after 62 Years


The Bakersfield Californian tells the tale.

“My aunt and uncle are up in heaven, ecstatic that their son is home now,” said Leticia Maiden Carter, Clark’s cousin. “It’s a blessing from God.”

PFC Clark died when his company of the 35th Infantry was overrun by Chinese Communist Forces near Unsan in November of 1950.   His remains were identified in December, 2012.  Now, he is home and has been laid to rest with the honors befitting an American hero.  Most importantly, his family has closure, upon which no price can be placed.

You were not forgotten, and now your sacrifice can again inspire.

Hand Salute. 

Ready TWO!
