Fairwell to the Philippines

by The Boatswain | May 30th, 2007

The trip to Pagsanjan Falls was our last excursion. Shortly thereafter, I was relieved of my command. The family and I were taken to Clark Air Force Base, where we loaded aboard a Military Airlift Transport and flew back to the States. We landed in Travis Air Force Base, north of San Francisco, transferred to another flight and flew down to San Diego. Once more our good neighbors, the Armstrongs, met us and drove us home to El Cajon.

Oh, yes, we had sold our good old Ford to a Filipino business woman, for a good price, and it was still running like a champ when we left!
