Al Clark

Retired Col. Alan Clark and wife Shirley of Estill Springs enjoy the United States Army Field Artillery Ball held recently at the Lakeside Club at the Arnold Engineering Development Center. The annual event, usually held in Chattanooga, was held at the Lakeside Club for the first time since 1989. Five members of the First Battalion, 181st Field Artillery, were inducted into the Honorable Order of Saint Barbara, the patron saint of artillery. The St. Barbara medals which hang from the red sash around Clark’s neck were sanctioned by the United States Field Artillery Association at Fort Sill in Oklahoma. Clark was inducted in 1992.
