Clark ’63 Establishes Combat Faith Channel
Retired Captain Allen B. Clark has established a Combat Faith YouTube channel. It is dedicated as an encouragement and education platform for active duty military and veterans, who desire to strengthen their spiritual faith and address issues related to Combat Operating Stressors from deployments to combat zones. He will also add in the future, messages on patriotic topics.
The channel on You Tube is available at https://tinyurl.com/CombatFaithChannel. Clark requests those interested to access the channel and click on "Subscribe" for the opportunity to view videos. On selection of "Videos" there are other videos on the channel, where he has been taped in past interviews, including an interview on the Larry King show. There is no charge to subscribe and subscribers will not be messaged when new videos are posted.
Clark, the founder of Combat Faith lay ministry, served in Vietnam in covert operations assigned to the 5th Special Forces Group. In an early morning enemy mortar attack at Dak To Special Forces Camp on June 17, 1967 he sustained extensive mortar shrapnel wounds, necessitating amputation of both his legs below the knee. He was hospitalized for fifteen months at Brooke Army Hospital to include a fourteen-week period in a closed psychiatric ward in 1968. Many succeeding years were spent healing from his extreme bout with what some would describe as Post Traumatic Stress. He has been a guest speaker at many Army Warrior Transition Battalions as well as veteran meetings and has mentored many combat veterans from all our wars.
