Biography

Ted Clark (VN) is a Project Member of Military and War Project.
Ted Clark (VN) was awarded the Bronze Star Medal.

I was born in Bacon County, GA, attended school in same county and graduated from Bacon County High School in 1955. Shortly thereafter I joined the USAF, with Basic Military Training at Lackland AFB, San Antonio, TX, following this, moved on for Basic Electronics & Ground Radar Maintenance Training at Keesler AFB, MS and made it a career, retiring in 1975. I served in the following countries England (Shellingford Air Station), Germany (Birkenfeld Air Station), Libya (Wheelus AFB), South Vietnam (Ban Me Thout Air Station), and the following US States; Texas, Mississippi, South Carolina, Georgia, Washington & Michigan. After my retirement from the USAF, I worked for a short period as a Licensed Insurance Rep. for Mutual of Omaha, but I did not enjoy the hours of work, so I began working for Union Camp, a paper mill as a lab tech. Once again this was not the line of work I saw myself in years later so I applied for a job at Grumman American Aviations Corp andI was hired as an Quality Control Inspector by Grumman American Aviation Corp., which became Gulfstream American Corp. in Savannah, GA and retired as Manager of Quality Assurance in 1997. It was during this period of employment that I renewed my efforts toward a college degree & I completed all the requirments and graduated in 1979 with a BA in History. I had been interested in my family lineage for sometime and over the years I was semi active in my research, but became active during the 1990's. Most of my data is from family members, tombstones, info from family generated histories and from data presented online.

Hi Ted,

I believe you have misunderstood the intent of my last comment here. The template for your bronze star is probably where the error lies. If you edit your biography and type in Bronze Star Medal instead of simply Bronze Star, the error will be corrected. (See the red category at the bottom of your profile. This category is incorrect and does not group you with other Bronze Star recipients.) Thanks, Natalie

Hello, Ted,

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Military and War Project, and we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

If you wish to remain, please let us know how you have been contributing to the tasks and goals of the project or any of its sub-projects recently, it would be very helpful to the leaders.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things and remove you from the project. You will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you,

First, we want to thank you for your past participation in the project. We appreciate your desire to honor your ancestors for their service to their countries, or even for your service, wherever in the world. We hope that your membership has enhanced your WikiTree experience.

Please let me know, by commenting on my profile or sending a private message, if you are still active in the project, and if so, in a general sense how you may have contributed to the main project or any sub-projects within the last couple months.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hello Ted,

I am not asking you to keep adding Southern Colonies families if you have already added them. I am merely asking if you feel you are still interested and active in US Southern Colonies. It is the main project of which Southern Pioneers is a subproject moving forward as the ancestors began to move westward as Pioneers to settle.

Many projects are polling to see if the members are still active.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding whether keeping your badge or joining Southern Pioneers.

Thank you so much for your response. I look forward to the next answer.

Ted,

On behalf of the US Southern Colonies Project Leaders, I am doing a six-month check-in with members to see if you were Active in US Southern Colonies?

1) Have you joined other Southern Colonies Subprojects, such as Southern_Pioneers Project. Or other projects?

2) Your activity in Southern Pioneers Project. Do you want to retain the Southern Colonies badge?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Ted,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,

Susie
