WWII veteran honored for heroism after 66 years
After Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (left) learned of Carl Clark's heroism aboard the USS Aaron Ward -- actions that saved the lives of fellow crewmen and in all likelihood prevented the ship from burning and sinking -- she sought out and secured the testimony of one of the few surviving officers of the ship, leading to the commendation ceremony for Clark on Tuesday (Jan. 17, 2012).
