Clark C. McClelland, ScO

$1,500 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 34 people in 1 month
In 1958 Clark C. McClelland was assigned to the national space program at Cape Canaveral, Florida, and helped launch or viewed 997 rockets and spacecraft. In addition to being an Aerospace Engineer and Technical Assistant to the Apollo Program Manager during the Apollo moon landings, McClelland and other Space Craft Operators did extensive technical checkout of simulated flights and mission objectives of the various shuttles to assure orbital success and the personal safety of the astronauts.

Clark has held important positions involving such manned projects as Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo lunar landings, Skylab, the Space Shuttle and the Space Station. He was assigned to the cockpit of the Space Shuttle missions as a Space Craft Operator (Ground Test Astronaut). McClelland’s name is on three commemorative monuments of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions – His name will also be on the Space Shuttle, International Space Station and the Deep Space Missions monuments in the future.

Presently, Clark is surviving only on his Social Security. In September (2018) he will turn 83. Few people have helped him and with the daily expenses of life, he is desperate for funds.

You all have been great people for helping Clark in his situation. If any of you out there can sustain a monthly donation (like I have done), that would be very nice of you. Otherwise, this was a better month for him. Either way, my thanks as you have shown kindness. This world really needs more humanity. Happy 4th of July ...

Hello Everybody:
I'm on a fixed retirement income and have been sending funds to Clark, who I befriended last year. He receives a monthly automatically generated ($125) check(s) from my bank. He has received additional funds when he needs it but, I can only give so much. I am working to possibly get him his well deserved NASA (government) pension. We were both screwed by the "System" but, I managed to get a partial pension and got out of my position, only to receive about a 7% retirement! So, one can see how I'm limited.
I most humbly thank you.
Sincerely,
Carmine

You people out there that I have had the pleasure of being contacted because of Clark are wonderful.
Please read the Updates. So many generous people like you helping an American hero (to me) with a moment of kindness. On behalf of Mr. McClelland, may I say: "Thank You!"

I spoke to Clark and he was thanking me! "It's not just me! All I did was to get the ball rolling! There are so many fantastically wonderful people out there. Fellow Americas who believe in the advancement of the Sciences AND "you" are (were) a part of it!" I replied!!
It's been a team effort. What a great team you all are!
Thank you so much ...
