Ted Burt/AB to A1C/3rd LES, 1983 - 1986
ted6516@yahoo.com

Hi, my name is Ted Burt/AB to A1C/3rd LES.  I was stationed at Clark Air Base from 1983 to 1986.  My squadron of assignment was the 3rd Law Enforcement Squadron.    What a wonderful time for all of us. Without question the best assignment in the Air Force.  I separated from the Air Force after 9 years of service in 1992.  The past 12 years I have been working in civilian law enforcement, and really enjoy my work.  Anyone who remembers me, please drop me an email.  Finally, a big thanks to the developer of this site.

Richard "Dennis" Shows, II, {(M)Sgt-Now}, Sgt
3rd Component Repair Squadron (CRS), 1988 - 1991 (Pinatubo)
rdshows2fam@yahoo.com

I was stationed at Clark as my first assignment right out of Tech School.  I heard the stories, but as most do, did not believe them.  I soon found out they are true and loved every minute of it.  I would love to hear from anyone that was in the 3rd CRS with me.  I am married to a Philippina cutie, nearly 15 years now.  My oldest daughter was born on Clark.  We got a chance to go back in 1997 and 1999 while stationed at Yokota AB, Japan.  The base is looking okay, for the most part.  My old dorms by PSC 1 are now a barracks. The old Officers club is a casino, golf course and Chambers Hall is now a golf resort- Memosa (sp?) and a Holiday Inn.  Commissary is now a duty free store, which are all over the place. Off base has changed a lot of course.  Most of the old bars are gone, but new ones have popped up.  Still have good places to eat--pork & chicken stand right by 'Genesis" hotel.  Nepo mart is still good for shopping.  Dau is still Dau, can still find equipment from on-base with the PMEL sticker on it.  I have kept in touch with a few guys-- Mark Hess (Ret), Bobby Gouge, Steve Sparks, Jim Burton, Rodney Krause, Joe Grant, Frank Tisdale (Capt now), Mark Vanderveer(Ret), and a few others.  I have know someone from Clark at every assingment since.....the last two names I ran into here at Tinker in OK!!!  I really miss the ole place.

Hi. I had a hell of a tour. I am hoping someone may pick up on this and email me. I was recently in the PI and freaked out on the use of Clark and it's present condition. But then again how would I remember, I stayed drunk for most of it!

TLegalEagles@aol.com

Hi, my name is Ted Burt.  I was stationed at Clark Air Base from 1983 to 1986.  My squadron of assignment was the 3rd Law Enforcement Squadron (3rd LES).  All of have is great memories and friendships during that time.  A big hello to some of the peace keepers: Mike Della Russo, Menelio Fuentes, Chuck Trim, Robert Minifield, and many more.  We were all young airmen; some of us already married with children, others single enjoying the off base festivities. Without question the best 3 years of my life!! I left the Air Force after 9 years of service in 1992.  The past 13 years have been in civilian law enforcement at a sheriff's office in the Washington D.C. area.  Looking to reconnect with old friends who might be interested in retiring over in the Philippines and starting a business.  Take care to all.

William P. Consani Sr, MSgt, USAF (Retired), 1950 - 1951, 1953
billconsani@webtv.net

I transferred to Clark AB in May 1950 from Kadena AB, Okinawa with HEADQUARTERS, 2D RESCUE SQUADRON (later 2nd Air Rescue Squadron) upon relocation of the Headquarters.  I was at Clark until November, 1951 when I returned to Camp Stoneman, California.  I was married on February 1951 to Maria Cuenca, who came to the states a couple of months before I returned.  We returned to Clark in July 1953, with our daughter Betty, who was born at Camp Stoneman. I was assigned as NCOIC of the Headquarters, 13th Air Force Pipeline Unit, where I processed and shipped several thousand Korea vets home for discharge. In November 1953, I was reassigned to the Legal Office (JAG).  On November 2, 1953 my wife had our second daughter at Cark AB Hospital.  On 22 May 1953 my wife Maria was killed in bicycle accident at Camp John Hay.  She is interned at the Church of The Bamboo Organ, in Las Pinas, Rizal, PI.  I returned home, with our two children after her funeral. I remained in JAG until my retirement on July 1, 1971. I would like to hear from any of the people that I knew or that Maria knew.

5 years of my life was spent at Clark, where I was able to have fun regardless of what else was going on in country.  I worked in CRS, spent time taking class through CTC, and spent every weekend I could out diving around the area.  Would be interesting to hear from anyone who may or may not recall me.

Dennis Price, A1C, 3rd SPG, 3rd LES,
Traffic Police Motocycle Unit, 1982 - 1985
drprice9@bellsouth.net

I can close my eyes and still see the sights and detect the aroma of the local cooking fires. I sorely miss all the personnel of the 3rd SPG from former Col. Allison and Col. Plummer to the AB who worked the gates. What a great bunch of folk. Looking back it was the best time of my life. We worked hard, played hard, struggled together, laughed and cried together. My first two of three children were born in the PI. I would love to hear from all of the former 3rd SPG, 3rd LES, and 3rd SPS and would like to put together a reunion. Would like to especially hear from Tom Wollenhaupt, Neil Smart, Tom Loprete, Tony Perry, Richard Mace, Lee Darrow, "Bubba" Smith, J. Alaimo, Steven Davidson, Chuck Millard, Eric Pino, Crystal Ledding, Kelly Owens,  Steven Decker, Larry Saldi, Carla Kenny, and any regulars of the Peace Keepers Pub! Hope God has kept all of the SPG safe!

Julio Balolong, 1971 - 1972
whobejuan@comcast.net

Mabuhay…I’m a Filipino-American that was stationed both at John Hay AB (1970-1971) and then at Clark AB (1971-1972). At John Hay, I was assigned to the 1961st O/L Comm Grp and maintained the MARS equipment.  Then the Air Force decided that the station was no longer needed and so my tour at John Hay ended. I was hoping to “touch bases” with anyone that was stationed there at the time.  I can remember some of the faces but can’t put a name to them. Also, if anyone was stationed at Clark AB (1961st Comm Grp) between 1971-1972, I would love to hear from them too!  Thanks/Salamat…Former Sgt. Julio Balolong

I worked flight, armory and mobility (i think) With Perrry as your boss, there are alot of things that are a little fuzzy. Played ball in the downtown league for welcome inn and smut hut. I just wish I could remember it all! Played league ball on base too. Still living in Kansas City and probably always will. Anybody who remembers me, send me a note. ( I know, its hard) it will be good to hear from you.

Daniel J. Trudeau, AB to A1C, 374th OMS, July '82 - Jan.'84
heavymetal@tscnet.com

I noticed this sight does not have the 374th Organizational Maintenance Squadron. Hopefully it will be added now. I am hoping to find some friends I was stationed at Clark with. I was a C-130 crew chief there. I wish I could remember all the guys and gals I was stationed with. Randy Strother was stationed there probably when the mountain blew in '91. If anyone has any info on him it is appreciated. Here is a few other names; William "Bill" Henson, Willis Colpitts, Robert "Bob" Peoples, James "Jim" Nolan. I don't know if I spelled all of them correct. I would surely like to say hello to these people, it has been many years now. My tour in the Philippines was good, I met alot of good people there. I can say if I knew then what I know now it would have been different. I did go back there last Nov.('04) and again in Feb of this year. It was great. I am going back in June and in Nov. When I saw the base I was pretty disappointed. It surely is not what it once was (at least in my memory). Downtown is still a great party. Alot less GIs and alot of Euro's, Aussies, and other tourists. I can't say thats a good thing or not. I can say the PI is a great place.
