Jim Davis, Kokomo, IN, SRA, 3rd LE Squadron, 1990 - 1991
I was at Clark during the Pinatubo days. There from start until one week before the flag went down. Was a member of the regulators. Whatever happened to Cpt Doogie Howser? Better question, who cares? If there is anyone reading this there when I was, e-mail me.

Looking for folks stationed at Clark from 1965-66 and assigned to the 405th FMS. I'm looking to get a hold of John W. Richards.
SSgt Joe Monday, 3rd Supply Sq, 83 - 87
My name is Joe Monday and I was a SSgt stationed at Clark AB from 83-87. Those were then, and will always be, the best years of my life. I've returned to AC almost every year since I left with plans to take another trip this summer. I would like to get in touch with anyone who was assigned to the 3rd Supply Sq during the time I was there (military or civilian). I worked in the Bench Stock Element with Brian Schultz, Clark Frymier, Jun Laquindanum, Beth Lapus, Frank Calhoun, Rick King, Calvin Daniels and others. Also anyone interested in hooking up for a return trip this summer shoot me an e-mail. There's safety in numbers.

Don Marksberry, Det2 57th WRS, 604th MASS, 1967 - 1968
My name is Don Marksberry and I was stationed at Clark in 1967-68. I was assigned to Det2 57th WRS and also worked out of 604th MASS. Have many good memories of Balibago. When I was there balibago and Angeles City were segregated, have never seen this mentioned on any site. One bar I recall was the Creatures Crypt and a girl named Emma Villanueva. I lived with her a short while and had a ball. Anyone that remembers me can E-mail me. When I was there not much was happening on Fields Ave except the Billie Boys. All the action was on on the main road in Balibago. I also remember the Binjo ditch that ran thru town.
Mike Dizney, 1971 - 1972
My name is Mike Dizney. I was at Clark in 71, 72. Looking for anyone who knew me. Please e-mail me.
Benjamin F. Willianms Jr., 1966 - 1967
Hello. I was an E-4 assigned to the 605th TCS from 2/1966 to 7/1967. Actually I spent most of my time TDY to Vietnam and Thailand. I would love to hear from anyone who was there at that time.
Sgt. Mike Tompkins, 608th TAC, June '69 Aug. '70
I just found the site so haven't explored as yet. Bearing that in mind, anybody from SEATOC around? That was the Southeast Asia Tactical Orientation course given to those going TDY in those days. I worked at the site with a group of guys setting up parts of the compound and running supplies in from the main base. Had an interesting TDY to Pingtung Taiwan. Long shot if anybody would remember that. Also flew "in country" once. At least that's what they told us. Maybe more on that later.
So anyhow, I'm going to explore. Maybe somebody from that group and/or era has already been here. Oh, almost forgot. I flew into Clark on a PBY when I was a dependent kid while my dad was in the Navy stationed at Subic. I had need of the hospital facilities and in those days they were the best. That was in 1954.
Looking forward to exploring the site. With fond memories for that time and place.
Ed Hurter, Sgt., 3rd AGS (Weapons), 1979 - 1983
Great Site! This site brings back a ton of memories, Softball, on and off base, hangin' out at ALL of those bars! Holy City Zoo (Wild Bruce), Old Rangoon's (Jerry). Pistol Pete's, Crazy McCabes,Murphys, O'briens, 8-Ball, Stardust Lounge, I could go on and on! Ballute' Not Me!! Pandasal (little breads) a GI favorite, and BBQ Stands pork sticks.

Vito "Cap" Lumetta, Sgt., 604 MASS "Hump till you Drop", 1972 - 1973
Looking for those that knew me then. Have been in contact with Doug "Pete" Peterson for years. We "humped" a lot of freight next to the Passenger Terminal. Was there when POW's returned. I have some photos I will send when I can get them scanned. One of our favorite bars was called the POW (Pearl of Wisdom). Would be great to get ahold of Tom Armstrong (one of my old roomies), J.J. Bates, Paul Sloan (another native Detroiter), and Ron Braun (stood up at his wedding there, and we were stationed together at Wright-Patterson). The winter of '72 I made it back to the states by attending the 22nd Air Force NCO Leadership school (I believe that was at Edwards AFB in San Bernadino, CA). The entire experience was wonderful! I hold dear the memories and experiences. Thank You for opening up an important part of my past.

A1C David Lunde, 374th Aerial Port Squadron-Fleet Service, Oct 1975 - Jul 1977
Mabuhay! Just wanted to throw something up on the wall here to see if any of the problem drinkers I worked/ran with wanted to get in touch. I lived in the Santa Maria subdivision with Dean Duke and Randy West for about a year. I never took a hot shower the whole time. It would have required actually starting a fire under the water heater. Favorite bar? The Midnight Special. Others I worked with whose names I can remember are Chuck Hill, Roberto Alicia, Larry "Midge" Hill, Mike Platt, Tony Hanes, Tim Collins, Dave Clermont, Terry Cheever. The years spent at Clark were one of the best times of my life. I still think about them often and am glad there are web sites like this that keep the memories alive.

We (a group of 10 ex-airmen) have a get-together each year and we are always looking for others who served about the same time. Also, noticed a picture you had posed of General Lee's birthday party. He arrived, I believe, sometime in early '52 and was AG of the 13th AF. I was working the night the message came in confirming his promotion to B.General. I think that was one of the first official acts by Eisenhower was the recommend his promotion. Gen. Lee was demoted by Truman sometime in the 40's for slapping one of his secretary members.

Harold J. Patterson
Looking at my old APR's, Orders, etc. There seems to be several different designations but the most prevalent is Hq. 13th AF. Under that, of course, were many different directorates, but I can't see any reason to list all of those. Myself, I was in the LGM directorate which dealt with Aircraft Maintenance. Thank you for the email concerning this.
