“My name is Clark, and I am a Soldier.”
Well-known and respected by fellow Signaleers, Dr. Tom Clark has worn many hats, but the one he’s most proud of is that of a United States Soldier – and he’s quick to let others know it.
Born in Danville, a borough in northeastern Pennsylvania, Clark enlisted under the Delayed Entry Program on June 19, 1979. The following year, he completed training as an antenna installation specialist (36D), earning him a place in the Signal Corps. For the next 32-plus years, Clark would climb the ranks, travel the world, lead thousands of Soldiers, endure combat, and reach milestones he once previously overlooked.
