A Soldier's Story: Specialist Beverly Sue Clark

Specialist Beverly Sue Clark was born on May 21, 1967, in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. She attended United High School in Armagh, where she played basketball and graduated in 1985. She enlisted in the US Army Reserves shortly after and would also work Seasons All Industry to pay for college. She had hoped to be a teacher upon completion of her reserve contract.

She was assigned to the 14th Quartermaster Division, handling clerical work for the unit. On February 19, 1991, Specialist Beverly Clark deployed to Saudi Arabia for Operation Desert Storm / Desert Shield and the Gulf War. Six days later, on February 25, a SCUD missile struck the barracks of the 14th Quartermaster, and she was one of the thirteen soldiers killed.

Specialist Beverly Clark rests at the Bethel Cemetery in Clyde, Pennsylvania.
