Is Barangay Patag really an acronym for Philippine Auxiliary Tactical Air Group or is it just plain flat land?

Philippine Auxiliary Tactical Air Group is the former name of the camp now called Camp Edilberto Evangelista (Read SOURCE). Coincidentally, its acronym is P.A.T.A.G. Shown above is a 1952 photo by Laurence A. Dondanville of Patag Airfield. Below is my best probable angle of the same site taken from google-earth.

Superimposing the 1952 photo revealed that the once airfield is now the golf course. I simply took notice the angle of the road leading to the camp which is still the same as of today.

Could Patag be derived from Philippine Auxiliary Tactical Air Group or is it just simply a flat land as defined.
