Tom Jung/Daily Journal

Congresswoman Anna Eschoo, D-Palo Alto, congratulates 95-year-old Navy veteran Carl Clark, the guest of honor at the Herby Dawkins Freedom Fund Banquet and 88th Anniversary of the NAACP, San Mateo Branch, held on Sunday, March 16 at the Elks Lodge in San Mateo. Clark received the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with the Combat Distinguishing Device in a ceremony at Moffitt Field on Jan. 17, 2012, more than 60 years after his actions helped prevent the sinking of the Destroyer USS Aaron Ward during the Battle of Okinawa in May of 1945.
