Fighting for our freedom since high school

  • 'Momma salutes your bravery, loyalty, and patriotism'
  • Daughter cries when she 'kisses' picture of her father on the computer

Sergeant First Class Bryon Kelley Clark is the youngest of three boys. After graduating high school, Clark decided to enroll in the army. He’s been fighting for our freedom ever since.

His Mom writes:
"There have been many situations in the past 19 years when we would not see each other for three years or more. He has had to watch his daughter grow up in pictures and cry as she would 'kiss' his picture on the computer.

His family thanks GOD that he has returned from three tours in Iraq. He has recently been in various state bases training National Guard and Reserve Soldiers on how to survive in the stark conditions of the Middle East.

His family and friends know him by his middle name which is Kelley---so Kelley, your Momma SALUTES your BRAVERY, LOYALTY, and PATRIOTISM. All of your family, including your 90-year-old GRANNY, miss you so much and are looking forward to your retirement and coming HOME."
