Clarence was drafted in August 1943. After his basic training he was sent to the European theater in July 1944. It wasn't until 11 Aug 1944 that he was transferred from the replacement depot to C Company 116th Infantry where he was to serve as an ammunition handler. PVT Mosbey apparently went missing in action but it was determined that he had been killed in action on 25 Aug 1944.
PVT Mosbey was repatriated and is buried with his wife and one of her daughters in the Broad Top International Order of Odd Fellows Cemetery in Broad Top, Pennsylvania.
His father, Allen, was a veteran of the Spanish American War. Half-brother, Chester Allen Gates, would die in 1952 of complications from injuries suffered in 607th Engineer Company when a truck rolled on top of him in Germany in 1945.
