Pirate Day - Admiral Joseph Clark
Today we’re grabbing our maps and eye patches to go on an adventure! We know we can’t travel right now, but the sea is calling so we’re gonna find a way to make this day an adventure filled one. Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Admiral Joseph Clark. His hometown is Pryor, Oklahoma. Now Admiral Clark wasn’t a pirate, but he did spend his career on the open seas! He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1917 and his military career took off. Admiral Clark, also known as Jocko, became one of the most renowned admirals of World War II! He even had a ship named after him in 1980: USS Clark. You can learn more by reading Admiral Clark’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.
