Since Micah's priorities give little attention to "telling his story," we offer the following on his behalf...
The personal convictions that led Micah to form "Camp Patriot" are steeped in his exposure as a young man to the terrors of war and the work of Jesus Christ in his heart.
Micah's Camp Patriot vision developed during a reprieve of fishing with his father, Bill Clark, near their vacation home in Libby Montana. While relaxing in these beautiful surroundings, his mind continually reflected on the numerous buddies not as fortunate as he, to come home physically unscathed.
He felt intensely that this pleasure needed to be shared with his fellow soldiers that had lost hope of ever again enjoying the great outdoors. Through outdoor adventures, they COULD recover their lives and regain hope in a future.
It might be said that regardless of "physical well-being," no veteran of war returns home unwounded.
Micah was a Navy Corpsman. He became a Corpsman for one reason - to become a SEAL, as that was the billet they needed most. Although Micah was and is fully capable of the physical and mental rigors of special operations, it was discovered due to a birth defect he could not dive without life threatening reactions to his in-ability to equalize.
Micah then served as a Corpsman with the Marine Corps and developed a love for the soldiers on the ground and their plight. He has continued to stay connected with the special operations community.
Micah served with Blackwater Corp. in Afghanistan and has trained various specialized teams in Europe and the US in special operations shooting techniques including sniper training.
Micah solicited the help of his father, Bill Clark, in founding Camp Patriot in 2005.
The beauty and intensity of Micah's heart and convictions have attracted the hearts and souls of highly capable board members to come alongside in accomplishing these goals.
Micah lives in Richland WA, is unmarried with no children, and since August of 2008 his efforts have been solely committed to the development of Camp Patriot.
