Soldiers' Angels Mourns SPC Clinton Upchurch

From Cathy of the Soldiers' Angels Living Legends Team:

We have a fallen SA hero, Clinton Upchurch.

Spc. Clinton R. Upchurch, 31, of Garden City, Kansas, died in Samarra, Iraq, on Jan. 7, during patrol operations when an improvised explosive device detonated near his HMMWV and enemy forces attacked using small arms fire. Upchurch was assigned to the 3rd Special Troops Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, Fort Campbell, Ky.

He is survived by his parents, Greg and Cindy Upchurch, of Garden City, KS.

Thank you for supporting our heroes.

Angel Hugs,
