Big D To Honor Fallen Solider During ACM Awards
April 17, 2015 at 8:31 AM (PT)
As he accepts his ACM AWARD this weekend, BIG D from the "BIG D AND BUBBA SHOW" will be wearing a dog tag that honors fallen MARINE, LCpl LANCE CLARK. CLARK was killed on SEPTEMBER 7th, 2007 in AL ANBAR, IRAQ, during his second tour of duty. He was 21 years old.
BIG D got the idea when he and BUBBA visited EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE in PALMDALE, CA. They were both presented with a dog tag honoring a fallen soldier, made by a non-profit group called DOG TAGS FOR KIDS. BIG D was so impressed that he decided he wanted to wear a dog tag honoring a fallen soldier from his own hometown during the "ACM AWARDS" this SUNDAY (4/19).
“It was such an honor to meet them,” said BIG D after meeting CLARK’s parents this week, “and they were so thankful that their son has not been forgotten.”
