Clark II sea tours include assignments on board Batfish (SSN-681) as a division officer and Combat Systems Officer, during which time he was named Batfish's 1988-89 Junior Officer of the Year; Navigator and Operations Officer aboard Dallas (SSN-700), after receiving the David Lloyd Award for Tactical Excellence while attending the Submarine Officer Advanced Course; Submarine Operations Officer for Commander Cruiser Destroyer Group EIGHT (COMCRUDESGRU 8), including support of an emergent deployment to Haiti as part of Joint Task Force 120 (Operation Support Democracy); and Executive Officer aboard Grayling (SSN-646) and Hampton (SSN-767).
Captain Clark commanded Connecticut (SSN-22) from August 2001 through September 2003. Under his command Connecticut completed two operations under the Arctic ice pack (LANTSUBICEX 1-02 and 1-03), as well as the ship's highly successful inaugural deployment to the North Atlantic. During his tour, Connecticut was awarded consecutive Submarine Squadron FOUR Tactical "T's" in recognition of tactical and operational excellence in 2001 and 2002, several Retention Honor Roll awards, and back-to-back unit awards recognizing Connecticut's performance during operations of significant importance to the National Security of the United States while deployed to the North Atlantic and Arctic. Of note, these were the first unit awards presented to a Seawolf Class submarine.

The Seawolf-class fast-attack submarine Connecticut (SSN-22) struck an object while submerged on the afternoon of 2 October while operating in international waters in the Indo-Pacific region. The safety of the crew remains the Navy’s top priority. There are no life threatening injuries.
The submarine remains in a safe and stable condition. Connecticut's nuclear propulsion plant and spaces were not affected and remain fully operational. The extent of damage to the remainder of the submarine is being assessed. The U.S. Navy has not requested assistance. The incident will be investigated.
In this photo, the Connecticut arrives at Fleet Activities Yokosuka for a scheduled port visit on 31 July 2021. Connecticut is conducting maritime operations in the U.S. 7th Fleet to maintain a safe and open Indo-Pacific.
