Introducing First Lt Clebe McClary, III, USCMC, Retired
Fall Meeting Course: Being A Leader: Giving More Than Getting (1 CE)

First Lieutenant Patrick Cleburne “Clebe” McClary, III, USMC, Retired, is an American hero. During the Vietnam War, the South Carolina Lowcountry native was serving as a platoon leader in the First Reconnaissance Battalion. On the Battalion’s 19th patrol, the unit was attacked by the Viet Cong. Lieutenant McClary was seriously wounded, losing his left arm and left eye, yet he continued to lead his men. The numerous surgeries and long recovery period that followed could have taken a bitter toll, but he faced his rehabilitation with characteristic determination. In the years since Lieutenant McClary, now an author and keynote speaker, has become a symbol of courage and hope to the many audiences around the world with whom he has shared his story.  

“Clebe is a genuine American hero with a convincing message that will inspire, encourage, entertain and offer genuine hope.” — Zig Ziglar
