CPT Christopher Clark was born in Thousand Oaks, CA in 1986. At the age of eight, his family traded the oceans of California for the mountains of Montana. He grew up in the “Malting Barley Capital of the World” (Fairfield, MT) where he graduated high school prior to moving on to his secondary education at Montana State University - Bozeman. While in college, he enlisted into the Montana Army National Guard as an Infantryman. After returning from his basic and advanced trainings, he contracted with the Reserve Officer Training Corps, Bobcat Battalion. Upon completion of college, where he earned a degree in English Literature, he commissioned as a Quartermaster officer and attended the US Army Logistics University (ALU) in 2011. After graduating from ALU, CPT Clark completed his initial leadership roles as a platoon leader and executive officer with the 639th Combat Service Support Company based out of Havre, Montana. In 2014, he was promoted into the operations section of the 495th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion. The 495th mobilized to Afghanistan in support of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel in 2018. The mission of the 495th, while deployed, was to sustain operations of all US personnel in Afghanistan while also training the Afghan Security Forces to operate efficiently. While overseas, CPT Clark was promoted to Commander of the headquarters and headquarters company (HHC) for the 495th. Upon returning home, CPT Clark jumped at the opportunity to become part of the Carroll College family. He is excited to be sharing his experiences while teaching the future leaders of our communities, and our military, by now fulfilling the role of Assistant Professor of Military Science for Carroll ROTC.
CPT Clark shares his life with his loving wife, Bobbie, and their two kids, Fisher and Willow. When not wearing the uniform, CPT Clark likes to spend as much time in the water as possible. Snorkeling, surfing, scuba diving, boating, hot tubbing, floating and kayaking are a few of the ways he figures out how to enjoy the water year round in Montana. He and his family are also active members of Narrate Church where they share in the church’s mission of volunteering within the community as a means of bettering the lives of those around them.
