Last Known Activity

Captain Alan Fulgham Clark

Captain Alan Fulgham Clark, USNR, of Birmingham, AL passed away Saturday, March 19, 2011 at the age of 80 after suffering from Alzheimer's disease for several years. Mr. Clark was a graduate of Ramsey High School and attended Marion Military Institute until he was old enough to attend the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. Following his graduation from The Naval Academy, Class of 1952, he served 5 years active duty in the Navy, including service in the Korean Conflict. He continued to serve our country in the U.S. Navy reserve for the next 32 years. As a reservist he was most honored to have served 2 years as Team Captain and Chief of Delegation for the United States joint service team that participated in NATO's Interallied Confederation of Reserve Officers' (CIOR) annual competition, a type of military pentathlon. Later he completed both Army and Navy Airborne training. He served a number of years as a blue and gold officer, recruiting young people to the Naval Academy, and was very active in the Naval Academy Alumni Association.

He retired from the U.S. Navy Reserve in 1983.

Other Comments:
TThe Interallied Confederation of Reserve Officers, commonly referred to by its French acronym CIOR, represents the interests of over 1.3 million reservists across 36 participating nations within and beyond NATO, making it the world’s largest military reserve officer organization.

Founded in 1948 by the reserve officer associations of Belgium, France and the Netherlands, CIOR is now a NATO-affiliated, non-political and non-profit umbrella organization of member nations’ national reserve officer associations.

The CIOR meets twice a year – in the summer and winter – and they work through committees that examine issues and provide analysis relating to reserve forces.  Typical issues of interest include the contribution of reserve forces to international operations, the re-integration of reservists within their respective communities following deployment abroad, the law of armed conflict, the impact of NATO expansion on the Reserves, and employer support to reservists.

In addition to their roles as reserve officers, many individual delegates of CIOR are highly accomplished business and industrial leaders, public servants and academics.  They are therefore in a unique position to contribute to a better understanding of security and defence issues in the population as a whole, as well as bringing civilian expertise and experience to the tasks and challenges facing reserve forces in NATO.
