I was there on the USS Canopus she was homeported there. A lot of fun in that little town. There was a resturant out side of Rota that had the best Garlic Fried Chicken.

It was almost 40 years ago, so my memory of the exact years is not too great.  However, I served at ROTA for 2 or 3 USNR deployments while I was in VP64 out of Willow Grove, PA.  These occurred in the period from 1972-77, and it was a real adventure.

The American Bar was my favorite pub in Rota, Spain. I enjoyed Cruzcampo and San Miguel beer as well as the usual Rum and Coke. I enjoyed the country music and especially the women.

The American Bar, another one of my hang-outs.  Manly because it was one of the few places in Rota that had country music on the jukebox.

Benny's a great place to hang out back in the 70's-80's.  They had a pool, good food and of course cold beer

CTM stationed at FOSIF just after the move to Bldg 533 inside the Wullenweber array (bull ring) late 1972 and stayed in Rota until separation in March 1976.  Awesome duty station.  Our boys were born in the Hospital on base.
