“I am grateful for the opportunity to become a CW5, this has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. Finally reaching this dream is surreal,” said Clark in a news release. “Life is hard, we all have challenges but keeping positive throughout those challenges makes all the difference. I am excited to try and make a difference in our organization and look forward to this new phase in life. Being ready isn’t enough, you have to be prepared for any challenge. Here is to being prepared.”

About Clark

Clark joined the military in 1999 at the age of 17. She was sworn in by her father, retired Col. Joseph Clark. Since joining the military, the Ogden resident has become a pilot of both the UH-60 Black Hawk and LUH-72 Lakota.

During her military career, Clark has been deployed to Kuwait on two different occasions. The first was from July 2001 to February 2002 as part of Operation Desert Spring. In 2008, she was deployed to Kuwait as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Additionally, Clark was also deployed to Iraq in 2009 and again in 2014. She also served a peacekeeping mission in 2014 in Kosovo. 

According to a news release, the chief warrant officer 5 is the highest warrant officer rank in the U.S. Army.
