Appearing last Thursday in a webcast sponsored by the Jewish Federations of North America and the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, US Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz acknowledged that the Iran nuclear deal will increase global terrorism. The same type of terrorism that killed Patrick Farr’s son Army Spc. Clay P. Farr.
“He loved defending his country. He was very patriotic,” his father Patrick Farr told The Bakersfield Californian. “When the war first started, he was in high school. If I would have let him enlist at that age, and the Army would have taken him, he would have gone right then.”
Farr graduated in 2003 from Centennial High School in Bakersfield. Although he will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery, a casket of mementos will be buried next to his fiancee.
“He would not have been happy doing something behind the lines. He’s the type that wanted to be right out in the action,” his mother Carrol Alderete told the newspaper.
May Clay Farr rest in peace, he died a hero.
