Here He is: Master Sergeant Clarence "Gypsy" Martin

The great thing about memorializing historic figures in this blog is connecting with their survivors.  Accordingly, we proudly present a geniune photo of MSGT Clarence "Gypsy" Martin of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. This image was taken at the end of World War II, when he was still a private, albeit highly decorated. He would later serve in Korea, where he made the ultimate sacrifice on April 25, 1951.  MSGT Martin was a remarkable personality on top of being a valiant soldier.  In fact, his family seeks for him a posthumous award of the Congressional Medal of Honor.  Check out his story here in this blog.
