Birth: Sep. 8, 1903
Oklahoma, USA
Death: Jan. 16, 1968, USA

Born in Oklahoma, the 1910 Census lists him as the son of Elizabeth B. Beeler (born ca. 1882), who was then widowed. She also had a daughter Sibyl [sic], born ca. 1902

In 1930 Clay, then age 26, was a boarder in Oklahoma City, OK and was employed as a machinist for an electrical company.

Clay enlisted in the U.S. Army and volunteered for parachutist duty. He was amongst the very first to qualify as a paratrooper. In October 1943 he was selected to be a member of the Cadre group who would train the newly formed 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment at Camp Blanding, FL.
