Clark Cemetery is located
on the main road inside the Clark Field (Clark AFB) complex. This 20 acre
cemetery contains 12,000 graves. Also known as Clark Field Cemetery or Clark AFB Cemetery.
Clark Cemetery was first established in 1900 as a burial ground for Americans that died in the Pampanga Province area or were reinterred here from elsewhere.
During the Japanese occupation of the area (January 1942 until January 1945), Clark Cemetery was disused as a burial ground.
During 1950, it was reestablished as a burial ground for American dependents and relatives
also Filipino burials including members of the Filipino Scouts and Filipino Constabulary
and citizens of other nations. Clark Cemetery was the last active United States Air Force (USAF) cemetery outside the United States. Disused after the June 15, 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo.
