  • Hello Mr. Jackson, Jr. My husband is a retired US Navy (retired on 1993 also) & worked as Civilian at Air Force/Army Base in Nellis, Las Vegas, NV & retired on 2012). I retired 2013 and we decided to settle in here in the Philippines. His former shipmate recommended us to use Space-A privileges since they have been doing it traveling around the world on Space-A (they are originating Space-A from any Military Station in USA). Since we are now living here in the Philippines, we should be originating from Clark Air Base. I read some of the do’s and don’ts re Space-A Travel and we would like to try it anytime from now. Maybe, if you don’t mind to give us some tips utilizing the Space-A Travel. Thank you.
