To Clark Walker's friends and family of which there are many ...

Clark is and will always be my friend and brother. I am the brother Clark laid down his life for that fateful day so many years ago. If it had not been for Clark's bravery that day I would not be writing this memorial in his honor today.

Clark epitomized the Vietnam soldier, young - 19 years of age, all-American ... the kind of person anyone would be glad to call a son, a brother, a friend. Clark loved his family and talked about them often, when we had time to sit and talk. If Clark had not been so devoted to his principles he would have left me that day when I asked him to, but he didn't ... he laid his body between me and hostile fire that day and I thank Clark every day for that.

I would like to close this memorial to Clark by using a quote from the Bible -

Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.
- John 15:13 -

Thank you, Clark Walker, from your Brother and fellow soldier,
James Jones

Clark L. Walker
My Brother

Clark was my little brother, my friend, my playmate, my best pal.
I was four years older than him. My job was to watch over him.
To keep him out of trouble and safe. There came a time in our
lives when I could not be there beside him.

It does not surprise me that he would lay down his life for his
brother in the service. He would give all he had and he did.
I know that he was loved by his fellow service men and I know
that he loved them.

Someday I will see him again.
We will once again be together

From his sister,

Clark was a brother anyone would have been proud to serve with. His untold bravery is something I will never forget. You are always with me, my brother.
