Pfc. Clarence Wolf Guts
86 years old from South Dakota
1924? – June 16, 2010
When the towers of the World Trade Center fell on Sept. 11, 2001, Clarence Wolf Guts asked his son to call the U.S. Department of Defense to see if the country needed his code talking abilities to find Osama Bin Laden. Wolf Guts was in his late 70s at the time, so his son did not make the call, but said the request personified his father’s love of country. “He still wanted to help. He was trying to still be patriotic”.
