Rest in peace brother. I will truly miss you and your friendship. Clay and I attended Officer Candidates school together as well as Armor Officer Basic course in Fort Knox. Clay had such a great personality that he is one that you would never ever forget no matter how brief your interaction was with him. He was a true leader. Always willing to stand up and take charge of a situation. Loved by his troops and peers alike. I am going to miss him so much. I am so proud to say that I was a friend of Clay's. I love you man. Rest in peace!!"

"If you are able, save them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go. Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own. And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind.( "Major Michael Davis O'Donnell 1 January 1970 Dak To, Vietnam.") America has been built on the blood of Heros and Brave Men of Honor who answered the call. A fellow veteran wants to thank this hero for his service, and my cherised freedoms. May you rest well in Gods loving embrace brave hero, and may God bring comfort to your loved ones for their sacrifice. You shall never be forgotten by a grateful nation.""
William Darby Taylor Jr. of Bonita Springs Florida
