  1. I recently purchased the wonderful shirt memorializing Clay. I had ordered it even know I didn’t know him because he fought and died for my freedoms. My son lost ten comrades within a few months of each other in Kunar Prov, Afghanistan…so, I have seen the hurt and pain of others. Clay will not have the chance to grow old and have children, so it is up to us to remember him. I recently wore it while I was eating at a restaurant and the very young waitress asked about his shirt and if it was my son. After explaining, she began to cry and tell me how her Marine brother was having a tough time returning after a long deployment. Everyone has a story….we give each other hope and courage. Thanks to Clay and his family for the ultimate sacrafice. The waitress and I agreed that the way to thank him is to live our lives the best we know how. Rest in Peace, soldier!
