Thanks for the suggestions Kevin. I go down to Oxnard two or three times a year and on my next trip I will stop in at the Seabee base there Port Hueneme. It is very likely I will be able to find the information I am looking for.

On another matter. I need to thank you once again for suggesting the site The site has lots of information and articles on Subic Bay and those of us that had the pleasure of serving there. I still haven't had the time to read everything there.

David not sure on the clean up,I know they had a lot of SEABEEs stationed there, you might want to research who was there then and maybe with luck they have a page here.GOOD LUCK.

I left Naval Station Subi bay several years before the volcano erupted, but I was wondering if anybody could tell me how the military cleaned up our bases i.e. what was done with the ash, etc. And a related question would be how long afterwards was it before we started closing the bases and how long did that take? I have seen pictures of the base covered in ash, but nothing indicating how it was cleaned up. Thanks in advance.
