I write you from Epinal in France because since yesterday have got the certificate of adoption for the Captain CLARY Cecil T.. Now, I'm responsible of Captain for the US Memory Grand Est France Association. At each event which will honor to all those who have paid with their lives our freedom, I'll be in charge to make the honors to Captain Clary Cecil T..This is for me a moral and emotional responsability that I share with my wife and my three daughters. Also, I would like to find as much informations about Captain Clary and his family. Can you help me, please? Thank so much for your backs.

Captain Cecil T. Clary
Division Headquarters and then CO of B Company of the 92nd Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron (Mechanized)
from Paris, Tennessee
KIA on 8 March 1945 near Grand Roselle
The mission was accomplished under constant mortar and artillery fire. It was under one of these mortar attacks that Capt. Clary was almost instantly killed by concussion.

Hello, Thank you for caring for the grave of Capt. Clary.
Here is where you can read something about him.

Enter the following into Google:

After action report 92nd Cavalry Recon Squadron Mechanized 12th Armored Division, Jan thru May 45.

Then go to page 33. You will read of Capt. Clary's heroism on the date of his death.
This is his citation for the Silver Star.

This website has a history of the 92nd Cavalry Recon Squadron. Look to the left column. Click on
Books and Written Experiences. Find the memoir
on the Squadron History of the 92nd Recon. Go to the
chapter on Troop B. There is a history of what they did
and where they went. Capt. Clary was highly respected.

I have learned that Capt. Clary was with Division Headquarters , I think in Service Co. He was reassigned
to the 92nd Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron sometime
early in 1945. I will try and find out more.
