Though I know this is a difficult time for the family, my hope is that you will be comforted from God's inspired word the Bible. John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:3,4 gives hope of a future resurrection and the complete elimination of death, pain and mourning. May the sure promise of a resurrection, comfort and strengthen you in the days ahead, knowing that the One who promised, "cannot lie" (Titus 1:2) Please accept my deepest condolences.

My tribute to Clarence "Chick" Sorenson:
On January 26th Chic passed away due to a long illness. I first met Chic in boot camp Feb 1966 at Camp Pendleton CA. We went through boot camp and then Vietnam in Sept 1966 where we were Fleet Marine force, landed at the base of North and Sound Vietnam DMZ which as then near Don Ha. We served in I Cor which was near and around Khe Sanh. We served with K Co. 3rd battalion 26th marines. All the time I knew Chick he was always a close friend and never let you down or left you behind.

For example, on January 8th 1967 our 1st patoon was ambushed and I took a round through the thigh, from the enemy automatic weapon fire . Sorrenson crawled up beside me through the enemy fire, and we both returned fire until we had no ammo left.

After sometime, it seemed like hours, Sorenson put me on his shoulder and carried me .5-.75 mile to the company post. Sorenson exchanged with to carry me with another marine that I recall which was Bob Corsa. He got us back into some what of a safe area for medical help. I'll always remember Chick Sorenson as a very dedicated Marine "always faithful" and will never be forgotten.

Chick was awarded numerous metals including a purple heart.
