Grave markers for Clyde M and Louise C Dillender in Section 35 Site 69 of Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington (Arlington county), Virginia.

Clyde was commissioned as a 2nd Lt, Infantry Reserve on 19 May 1937 after graduating from the University of Missouri.

A neighbor liberally "dropped in" to see Richard S. Bradley, of Mexico, left, recently.  Bradley, touring military installations as a member of The Defense Department's Tenth Joint Civilian Orientation Conference, "ran into" his neighbor's son-in-law, Lt. Col Clyde Dillender, right, during a mass parachute drop at Fort Benning, Ga. The colonel, a battalion commander in the 508th Airborne regimental Combat Team is the son-in-law of Ray Carroll, of Mexico.  He "looked Bradley up" after seeing his name on an official guest list.  [Mexico Ledger, Mexico, MO, 8 Nov 1951, Page 12]
