"I have the honor to say Iíve known Army Staff Sgt. Clinton T. Newman since he was just Clint. I had the pleasure of watching him and his brothers grow up from little kids to men. Sgt. Newman along with his brothersí sense of duty to serve was no doubt instilled by their father who I had the privilege to serve with in the fire department for 15 years. I thank you all for your willingness to serve and to tell you;
After my son saw what all went on in bringing Clint home, he wrote Clintís name on his home jersey and played the rest of the season in that fashion.
Thanks to great people like Staff Sgt. Clinton T. Newman, my son is now playing college basketball and enjoying a carefree and FREE life. If youíve never had a serious athlete in your house you may not understand what it means and or takes for them to write on their jersey or shoes like that."

"Clint was a good buddy of mine, both in and out of the Army. We were deployed twice together to Afghanistan. He was the epitome of a squared away soldier, and one of the greatest guys and best buddies that I have known. I looked up to him, and could always count on him for advice. It was an honor for me to have him to pin on my rank when I was promoted to Sergeant, because he was the type of non-commisioned officer that I aspired to be; hopeful, dependable, and fearless. He will live on in my memory and that of all who had the honor of calling him a friend. We will never forget him."
SGT Chris Moore, 321 CA of Paktika, Afghanistan
