I'm glad you want one of mine and it is enclosed herewith, [not present] with my best wishes for you and your family for a Merry Christmas and a happy and successful 1970. Sincerely," Mark W. Clark (1896-1984), who assumed command of the Fifth Army in North Africa in 1943 and commanded the Fifth Army in the invasion of Italy in 1944, became a Four-Star General in March 1945. He accepted the surrender of German forces in Italy and Austria and, from 1945 to 1947, was the U.S. High Commissioner in occupied Austria. In 1953, as Commander in Chief of the United Nations Command, he signed the military armistice between the U.N. Command and the North Korean Army and Chinese People's Volunteers in Korea. That year, he also began his 12 years of service as President of The Citadel. Clark is buried on the campus of The Citadel next to Mark Clark Hall. Slightly creased.
