“You are Remembered”
Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. "He which hath no stomach to this fight let him depart. But we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless You for your Sacrifice!!!

Neighbor
I was a neighbor to Clydes wife Jenny. I met him after he and Jenny married. He was a great guy. I was stationed at Ft.Sill and had just received my orders for Viet Nam and called home to tell my parents when I found out Clyde was KIA. We must never forget the ultimate sacrifice he and others made. God bless you my brother in arms

I Remember
I remember Clyde. Clyde was the husband of my niece, Jenny Lyn Johnson (Lawrence) (Diaz). I first met Clyde not long after he and my niece were married, and perhaps visited with him on one or two occasions before he entered the service.

I also had the sad honor and privilege of being the military escort for Clyde when his body was returned from Vietnam to Oklahoma City. I was stationed at Chu Chi, South Vietnam with an aviation unit at the time of Clyde's death.

I rememember Clyde as being a very serious, articulate, and patriotic young man who was interested in world and national affairs, and who enjoyed discussing my military career and experiences. Although I did not serve with Clyde in the Army, I know that he was a dedicated and professional NCO who gave his all for his soldiers and country. He would have done no less. God Bless him for all eternity.
