Mt. Pinatubo

Post by OLDGUNNER »

It was said that this was 10 times the force of Mt. St. Helens. My son at the time was the NCOIC of the Com group at Clark and as he said he was in the last van that left the base...He turned the lights off and locked the gate. Well, there wasn't any lights. And that was it, the US abandoned the base.
Our apartment building was of poured concrete but the 4th floor roof was of wood and it just collapsed. I helped him and his wife get out.
