Stotsenberg instead of Stotsenburg?
I was stationed there in 60s, and remember it as "Stotsenberg," but memory is a fragile thing. The hits on internet searches find "Stotsenburg" mostly in Wikipedia. Others such as this one (http://www.sunstar.com.ph/static/pam/2007/02/11/bus/hotel.stotsenberg.opens.in.clark.economic.zone.html) or this one (http://www.pacificwrecks.com/airfields/philippines/clark/index.html) among a number of others use the spelling "Stotsenberg." One of the sites devoted to former AB also has it as "Stotsenberg": http://www.clarkab.org/history/index.htm. I suppose the only definitive answer would be in military archives, although the name of the soldier, identified in that web site as "Col. John M. Stotsenberg" might have some confirmatory value. Another site devoted to the former AB also lists it as "Stotsenberg": http://zcap.freeyellow.com/pix3.htm.
