It was an overflow crowd of friends, Rotarians, and well-wishers that assembled at a recent Littleton Rotary Club meeting to honor COL Gerhardt C. (Clem) Clementson in celebration of his 100th birthday. A member of Littleton Rotary since 1988, Clem was awarded Lifetime Honorary Membership in recognition of his commitment to the club and the ideals of Rotary.
His active military career included flying the famed P-38 Lightning during WWII, teaching math and computer science at the US Air Force Academy, and ultimately retiring from work in numerous projects at NASA. 
Enjoying the celebration were over a dozen other military veterans who are members of the Rotary Club of Littleton. All were presented Rotary lapel pins recognizing them as US Military Veterans. Rotary Clubs throughout the US support numerous local and national programs aimed at providing assistance and support to military veterans and their families.
Happy 100th Birthday to COL Clem Clementson! God bless all our veterans.
