The certificate cited his service as president of The Artillery School Board and later as director of the Combat Development Department. 'In these assignments,' the certificate states, 'Col. Clay was responsible for developing new artillery doctrine, organization, and equipment for the future. To this exacting and important task he brought extensive combat experience gained in two wars, a comprehensive knowledge of field artillery, and the wisdom to evaluate new developments and to correlate the new with the old. Through his dynamic leadership, organizing ability, professional attainments, and selfless devotion to duty, the research and analysis performed under his direction constitute an important, long-range contribution to national security.' Col. Clay served overseas 24 months in World War II, taking part in five campaigns beginning with the invasion of Normandy. He commanded the 18th Field Artillery Group...He also served ten months in Korea, participating in the spring offensive, the UN summer-fall offensive, and the second Korean winter campaign...Col. Clay was awarded the Silver Star, the Legion of Merit with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Bronze Star Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster, the French Legion of Honor (Chevalier) the Croix de Guerre with Palm. This morning Col. Clay will be awarded the Order of St. Barbara at ceremonies in the commanding general's office.

Biography: The biography of Susan Clay Sawitzky from The Kentucky Encyclopedia follows:

SAWITZKY, SUSAN CLAY. Susan Clay Sawitzky, poet and art historian, was born in Frankfort, Kentucky, on July 21, 1897, to Col. Charles and Mariah (Pepper) Clay. Great-granddaughter of Henry Clay, she was raised in her grandmothers' Victorian homes and on her father's horse farm. She attended Miss Ella Williams's School, then briefly Sayre School, Transylvania University, and the University of Kentucky. Her early poems and stories appeared in Town and Country Magazine and the New York Times and in local publications, and in 1923 the book Poems by Susan Clay was published in Chicago. On May 5, 1927, fleeing family interference, she eloped with Russian-born New York art dealer William Sawitzky. Only one poem was published after her marriage, appearing in Poetry: A Magazine of Verse in 1941. From 1927 to 1947 she helped Sawitzky conduct pioneering research on early American art, research she continued after his death in 1947. Sponsored by the New York Historical Society, she published articles on Reuben Moultrop, Ralph Earl, and Abraham DeLanoy. Susan Sawitzky wrote poetry for over sixty years and a short collection was published posthumously by the Kentucky Poetry Review in 1984. Her collected poetry speaks poignantly of her struggle against family and community for the right of self-expression and of the tenacity of traditional Southern values well into the twentieth century. Sawitzky died on July 11, 1981. Her ashes were scattered near a millpond at Stamford, Connecticut. See Woodridge Spears, ed., "The Circling Thread: Poems by Susan Clay Sawitzky," Kentucky Poetry Review (Jan. 1984).
