Synopsis

THOMAS M. WHALING Attorney at Law You will r emember Forest Gump's ability t o turn u p just i n time for the great events in history. Clyde Childress is not Forest Gump, but instead a driven, disciplined genius. Clyde Childress is both a Marine Aviation Warrior and business tycoon with a special gift for turning up just in time for events that made history. His life has been a thrill a minute and seems to grow more entertaining and exciting with time. An Outstanding read! JOE WADEL Colonel, USMCR, ret “FORKS” is an excellent book about the life adventures of a highly decorated Marine Corps o fficer. It candidly depicts difficult circumstances from Clyde’s early years that reveal his dreams and expectations; his early passion for flying as Virginia's youngest licensed pilot and his distinguished career as a Marine Corps aviator evident throughout his book. H is account of actual combat experiences are both captivating and spellbinding events that, few people will ever experience in a lifetime. It is a true miracle. TED KOOPMAN, CDR USN, ret Clyde O Childress, Major, USMC ret. is one of the most remarkable men I have ever met. He is a true and genuine Patriot who l oves America and has served gallantly in combat. Clyde’s patriotism continues with his on-going efforts to help veterans, especially those who have suffered in action. His story is one of the most remarkable I have ever read because of his unique ability to overcome obstacles that stop most people cold. Clyde is an inspiration to everyone who meets him. His 'never give up' attitude and willingness to go out of his way to help anyone proves that gallantry exists both in and out of combat. Major Childress' candid story also proves that the American Dream is alive and well, and "Forks" provides the reader a rare, personal glimpse into the life of a rare individual . PAUL GALANTI, CDR, USN ret. Commissioner, Dept of Veterans Affairs Commonweath of Virginia
