I knew Frank professionally. We served together at Hill AFB as Instructors, and most rewardingly at Headquarters, Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Service (ARRS) Scott AFB, Il. We were StanEval Flight Engineer Evaluators. Frank was a “Heavy Lift” helicopter Flight Examiner, and I was a “Light Lift” helicopter Flight Examiner. I am Tommy Kitchens.

To the family of Retired U.S. Air Force CMSgt. Frank Clubb,

Every American’s flag should be at half-staff in honor of your loss.

Each and every breath of fresh air that we take for granted is made possible because of the sacrifices of warriors like CMSgt. Frank Clubb.

Although your loss is filling your heart with sadness at the time, know that his fellow warriors most sincere condolences are being sent to your family and friends of this American Warrior.

It is because of his willingness to serve in harm’s way that allows us to live free. He served as a defender of OUR freedom. Now may he rest in peace with God, his mission is complete. The stars of Heaven are brighter because CMsgt. Frank Clubb is in Heaven standing watch over all of us.

We pray that the Lord above lay his healing hands on the family and friends of this Warrior, and comfort them during this emotional time. Give them the strength to carry on while remembering their fallen loved one evermore.

I first met Frank when I reported in to the 1550/1551th Wing at Hill AFB in Ogden, Utah in the early 1970s. I was 27 years old at the time and was a new student to the USAF Helicopter community. I had just enlisted in the USAF having 10 years in US Navy helicopters. Frank and I got along well due to us being almost the same age. I was born in Oct. 1943. I will miss Frank. He was a figurehead in the early Jolly Green/Dusty helicopter Flight Engineer A431X0/A113X0 codes. Fair Winds and Following Seas Frank. We will be together again in near future. Say hello to Frank Deck, Woody Rumbaugh, David McLeod, George McMullin and all the other Flight Mechanics you taught to ready them for Vietnam. Thank you for your service to our country “That Others May Live”.
