The Philippines. While opinions from folks
stationed at Clark varied greatly when it came to many topics, one of the
things that most will agree to is that the Philippines is one of the most
beautiful places they've ever seen. While flying across the countryside the

Cordilleras to the north present a striking portrait. The sprawling rivers,
rice paddies and other bodies of water all contribute to the country's
beauty and uniqueness.
