Christopher Clark, Naval Petty Officer 2nd Class, stopped to visit the first-grade students in Peggy Austin's class at the Cameron Elementary in Gladstone. Before Christmas, the first-graders had written letters to Clark while he was on a nine-month deployment. While home on leave, he stopped in to thank the class and brought a sailor hat for each student.
Petty Officer Clark demonstrates to the students the proper way to salute. Clark is the son of Keith and Laurene Clark of Gladstone.
