The hot air balloon festival in Clark field Pampanga is a whole day event so when I got bored later that afternoon I sneaked out to see the base cemetery. Clark cemetery site was established in 1950 and contains non-world war 2 related remains from the base and other U.S. cemeteries in Manila. It is the last active U.S. cemetery outside of the United States of America. The graves date back to 1900. All branches of the United States Armed Forces are represented as well as Philippine scouts, Philippine constabulary, and citizens of other nations. The cemetery contains 12,000 grave sites in an area encompassing 20.365 acres.
It says that graves date back to 1900 so I challenge myself not leave the place until that 1900 grave is found. Believe me, I found it and it was really nice being here. It was like I was transported into a different dimension. imagine 12000 graves dating back 1900…seeing a part of history is one of a kind experience.
and now…the oldest grave dating back 1900
