Faribault Native Honored as Camp Lemonnier Member in the Spotlight
Petty Officer Second Class Clifford Bentley is a 1991 graduate from Faribault High School and he has been honored as a Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, Member in the Spotlight. Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti is a U.S. Navy base in the Horn of Africa.
Master Chief Bruce Forester, commander master chief of Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, had this to say about Petty Officer Bentley:
“I am extremely proud of Petty Officer Bentley and congratulate his on his nomination as the Camp Lemonnier Member in the Spotlight. It’s not easy being deployed from home to an environment like the one we have here, but Petty Officer Bentley exemplifies the Navy’s core values of honor, courage and commitment and is an outstanding representative of our command and our nation.”
Clifford credits his wife for the success he's had in the Navy and the sacrifices he's had to make to earn this nomination: “There is a lot of time spent away from my family to accomplish some of the goals and demands I have committed to. I know this sacrifice is one not only given by me but, is also one they have given.”
His family has been and is currently involved in a variety of military services. He says, “My grandfather, nephew and niece served in the Army, my father served in the National Guard, and my daughter is currently serving in the Air Force.”
