I met Clint in 1982 while stationed in Austin Texas. We were close in rank which put us together in a lot of situations. He used to call himself Dazzy D. He was my best friend. Clint left the military to go back home and join the Port Authority. Hell we were kids when we were stationed together. I thought the port authority has something to do with working on the docks. As with all things military, I moved around the world and thought Clint was have a fine life. It wasn't until a year or so ago that I found memorial while searching for him. Thought I could show up on his doorstep and give him some crap about being old. I will miss you my brother in arms. So, here's to you Clint from the 67th Security Police Squadron, A Flight. We love and miss you.

I did not know Officer Davis, but have continued to remember him and his sacrifice. I pray for that his family knows that, 15 years later, his sacrifice has not been forgotten. May God bless and comfort those who knew him and loved him. I hope his children know the heroism of their father will never be forgotten.

To the family, friends, and fellow police officers of Officer Clinton Davis:

I extend my deepest sympathy to you. Officer Davis, along with the other officers, firemen and EMS personnel lost their lives on 9/11 while trying to save lives. Their act of bravery and sacrifice will always be remembered by people in the USA and around the world.

I wasn't able to do much, but I thank God that I was able to raise money for Officer Clinton Davis's family to send them to Great Adventure Park for one day. That was the least that I could do for his family. I spoke to his sister Caroline Winston Davis via phone, but I never met them in person. I would love to meet them some day. My thoughts and prayers are with Officer Davis's family, friends, and fellow police officers. God bless you!

I am the founder of a group that goes out to nursing homes, homeless missions and hospitals to visit and give hugs and stuffed animals to the sick, handicapped, homeless, and elderly at the facilities. My group is called the Angels of Mercy. My mission is to continue reaching out to the elderly, sick, handicapped, homeless and to spread the message of peace and love in the USA.

Never Forgotten...I had the honor of bringing Davis and Houston home, as a Member of FEMA Urban Search & Rescue Task Force 8, San Diego, California. "Greater Love hath no man then to lay down his life for his brother." Officers Davis and Houston were making a difference in lives everyday of their lives...not just this day.

To the Davis family,
I did not know your father. However, my husband and I began fostering a lab puppy back in March for the Transportation Security Administration. The dogs born into the program are fostered out to families to raise and socialize for the first year. After that the dogs will begin training to become bomb dogs to work at airports. Every dog born into the program is named for someone who died on 9/11. Our dog's name is Clinton Davis, but he goes by Davis.
I was curious to know what kind of man Mr. Davis was so I decided to look him up. It is evident that he was a valiant and heroic man. When I saw that he was an officer and paid his life to save others I thought it was absolutely fitting that our dog be named after him. He, too, will hopefully be saving lives soon. Davis is beautiful, intelligent, loyal, hilarious, and strong. I just wanted your family to know that your father is remembered. I hope our Davis makes your family proud.

Dear Clinton:
My reflection to you is long overdue, but nonetheless, I made a promise to each of you to have your own reflection from me, so here, sir, is the recognition I give to you;
America's first and last line of defense is her police officers. Anyone who doubts that, is a damn fool. Your dedication and sacrifice is to be remembered for all time, as we, your brother officers, will not accept anything less. Some say that the death of so many officers is a tragedy in of itself. Some Americans say that the carnage of 11 September 2001 taught us a nation, to open our eyes to the very real threat of death and mayhem by a group of sick fanatics. While that is all true, the larger event of that horrible day, is that in exchange for your life and that of all the rest, 25,000 innocent people were spared. In every horrible event, there is always a hero who comes out of nowhere to do the impossible. That hero, Clinton, is you. You were that bright sun of life bursting through the black clouds of death that day.
But my words of gratitude and pride in your behavior and sacrifice, is only words. The real reflection is that EVERY American, every peace loving person in the world, remember ALWAYS, what you did. I pray that those folks who were spared, now EARN, everyday, what you and all our fallen officers gave them...life. Earn it by doing something constructive, by helping to keep America safe and strong.
Rest in peace brother, our sacred blue line has held. May Almighty God hold you close to Him, and grant your family peace and comfort. We will forever be your debt. God Bless you, your family, our police officers, and God Bless America. Amen

To the family and loved ones of Officer Clinton Davis and his fellow officers with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department and most especially to Clinton:

Mere words seem insignificant to honor your heroism and courage which will never be forgotten. On this the fifth anniversary week of the tragic devastation wreaked upon our nation, those brave men and women who lost their lives safeguarding others are remembered and revered.

May your spirit continue to soar and your memory continue to inspire.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect and gratitude for the distinquished service Clinton gave to his community and country, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on Septmeber 11, 2001.

There are but two persons who protect the sinful human race from destroying itself. One is God's Holy Spirit. The other is the Peace Officer. Without them, we would all perish at each other's hands.

You were called into this profession and our Lord and Savior has blessed you because:
According to Romans 13.1-5...
God ordains the Peace Officer’s profession.
The Peace Officer is sent by God.
The Peace Officer is vested with God's authority to enforce the law.
A Peace Officer's badge is to be honored by us, because God honors it.

You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for your fellow man, while serving, defending, and protecting others in your community.

Thank you for your service to America. Your efforts saved thousand that horrible day.
My thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends. You will be in our hearts forever.

I tried to attend as many funerals as I could during these darkest of days as my way of showing respect to families and coworkers of all of my brother and sister Officers and Firefighters. I cannot find the words to say how sorry I am that we have lost these great heroes. I cannot express my thanks enough for your bravery and sacrifice. My prayers are with you and all of your families......................AC

Shortly after the tragedies my mother purchased a bracelet at our church, ours with the name Clinton Davis. The purpose was to wear the bracelet and pray for that particular victim and their family as often as possible. For months I have said his name over and over in my head, and prayed for him, and the family that Clinton Davis has left behind. Until today, 8/23/02, I had no idea what he looked like. I found his picture on this web site, and am so happy to now also be able to picture his face. I thank Clinton Davis for giving his life. God bless his family, and may they have peace and rest in their hearts and always know that he died a hero.

My Prayers are with all the friends and family of all the officers who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
I lost my brother tragically, Det. David Taylor, Greensboro PD, On August 7, 2001. I was in NY for my fiancee's Mother's funeral the first of Sept. I was stranded there for 3 weeks due to this atrocity. As I watched the events on TV, I cried for all those who lost their lives. But was especially emotional about the Police Officers and the Firefighters and their families, as I had just recently suffered a tragic loss myself. As I walked through the streets in the days following the attack, I cried with pride as I saw the officers on duty on all the corners in the city. I knew how hard it was for them, knowing they had lost their friends. On the Sat. following the attack I was at St. Patrick's for mass. The last 2 people to go up and take communion were 2 NYPD officers, again I cried. I hope all of you are getting the support that my family and I got when we needed it, from the Deparment. I know the comforting words and even the funny stories the officers tell us about my brother helps. I know that our loved ones who are gone from here, had a higher calling and are happy and at peace in Heaven. Hopefully we can all feel that same peace one day! God bless All of you! And God bless America!
