Eagle list[edit]

User:Gadget850 reverted your addition of Clarence to the Eagle list. For at least three reasons I'm sure: Clarence W. doesn't have a wiki article, and there is no record known to us of him being a DESA, and "eagle" is not mentioned in the ref you provided. Now I do note you have the same name as the Bill J. McKown listed here. You are new to wiki and if you can provide info for an article we can help you make an article on Bill who is a DESA and if you can find info and refs an article on Clarence. Is he a DESA recipient too? RlevseTalk 13:03, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Clarence W McKown Jr. is on the DESA list, class of 1969, listed just after Bill. In order to maintain a high quality article, we require that each entry have an article that meets the notability standards. As Rlevse noted, if you can get us information, we can help to draft an article. ---— Gadget850 (Ed) talk 13:21, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Noted, Clarence is on the list too. RlevseTalk 13:26, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
