K9 (Dog) Cemetery on Clark -- Pending Eagle Scout Service Project
Everyone (Please forward this to any friends that might be interested or might be able help).
There is a historical site on base that is the resting place of military working dogs (K9). We are trying to find anyone who might have direct knowledge.
Can you help?
1. We are trying to find out if there are any veterans here in the Philippines or anywhere who was a Dog Handler who might be able to help us locate the Master Plan / Master List of Dogs buried at the ceremony. Each grave site has a market with marble top with either the dog's number and/or name (see photos attached). However most are fading severely. We did try last year the base museum on Clark and contacting the website in 2 below - but no success. We are trying one more time.
2. We also want to find any additional history. Photos. This website has been useful . http://www.clarkk9.us/index.
You can see there was a beautiful statue of a dog handler and his dog before Mt Pinatubo. Also the rod iron fence. Both are gone.
3. If anyone would be willing to help physically or financially on this project, please let me know.

This is a worthy project as there is a lot of history behind that K9 cemetery, a lot of love too. Whoever contributed to that statue disappearing should be ashamed of themselves.
