I dedicate this page to my son,Jr, and all the fallen
soldiers who have left this earth unannounced. On 8/14/08, my son
Captain Clayton,son Hayes "Trey " Clayton, III,was 2 years old. He was only 4
months old when his father was killed. He has brought lots of joy and
love to our family. My grandson is not alone having to grow up without
one of his parents, during the Operation Iraqi Freedom. We count it Joy
to have a part of our son with us everyday. I say to the rest of Our
Fallen Soldiers Families,let's work together to help other families fine
peace within themselves.  We cannot bring our love ones back, but, we
can keep them alive in our hears.  I believe truly in my heart, that
God does not make mistakes.  Each one of us have a limited time here on
this earth.
Let's make the best of it.

Captain Hayes Clayton Jr. is my brother and although I
was very saddened by his death, I am very, very proud of the path he
chose.  My brother did not die at the hands of some street thug or drug
dealer. Nor did he die in some random car accident or genetic disease.
My brother died wearing his uniform and serving his country.  We prayed
and prayed that he would not be deployed and for 2 years he remained in
the states.  He then asked us to stop praying for him to remain in the
States and not be deployed, so that he could do the right and
honorable thing.  We answered his request then he got deployed and died on
Christmas day. Do we regret this decision? NO, because God has a day that
we all will be called to death.  The question is, when you die, What
Will You Be Doing?
