Clark AFB hospital in the Philippines

I was a patient in Clark AFB hospital when Francis was a patient there, due to a severe concussion from an accident on my ship, the US Camden (AOE-2), while in port at Subic Bay, Philippines. I visited Francis at his bed several times. The nurses would often change the dressings to his stomach wound from a shrapnel shell. Francis's hometown in Minnesota was Foley and mine was St. Cloud, about 15 miles apart, so we had close hometowns. I met Francis's sister at the hospital in Clark. She traveled all the way from Foley MN to visit Francis. Antibiotics in today's medicine would have saved Francis's life. I saw his name on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial while visiting Washington D.C. Once I heard Francis was buried near Foley. Never got to visit his grave but always wanted to locate the cemetery where he is buried.
