The Clark Veterans Cemetery 2023/04/19

A friend asked me to get the GPS Mark for the grave of Sgt. Philander Rodman. He wants to contribute that information to the website Find A Grave. A cemetery staff member helped me find the grave, it was at this location: Section C, Plot 1F, Grave 16K. I learned that the cemetery is outlined in three sections: A, B, C, and look at the map. I took pictures of the whole cemetery and established these two web pages in high resolution:

The Clark Veterans Cemetery is now in the hands of the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC). I like to thank all the dedicated individuals that helped convince the U.S. Congress to take charge of these veterans’ graves, some of them I know personally.

In the early 90s, as a member of VFW Post 11447 we helped the VFW Post 2483 in Angeles City to help clean and cut the grass in the cemetery several times. I helped bury here several comrades and shipmates in recent years. I would like to be buried there also, being associated with the U.S. Military and the Philippines over 60 years now. I asked the cemetery office staff member; in his opinion how many more decades can veterans to be buried here. He said several more decades veterans should be able to be buried there.
