After entering the service James was sent overseas. James was already a CPL when he was transferred from the replacement depot to B Company 116th Infantry on 13 Jun 1944. He was again transferred from B to A Company 116th Infantry on 15 Jun 1944, likely to help in replacing the many men that unit lost on 6 Jun 1944 in the D-Day landings. On 30 Jul 1944 he was seriously wounded and evacuated to a hospital. CPL Clark died of his wounds on that same day.
CPL Clark is buried in the Normandy American Cemetery.
