He made the courageous choice to serve his country and enlisted in the United States Navy where he served being the only man of color in his crew, until being discharged with honors. Not long after being honorably discharged from the Navy, Clifford joined the traffic division team working for the City of St. Louis. His outstanding work ethic and amazing citizenship earned him the utmost respect from the Mayor of St. Louis on the day he retired. Clifford enjoyed the simple things such as walks, sightseeing, sitting with fellow veterans sharing stories about his time in the Navy, and the things he got to see, he was a very wise man, he believed that although no man is created perfect in the eyes of GOD all men were created equal.
