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.

I was stationed in Rota from 1974-77 at the Naval Communications Station. It was my all time favorite tour of duty.

I arrived in Naval Station Rota, on my 21st birthday back in 1982. I was attached to Fleet Ocean Surveillance Information Facility (FOSIF) which was located in the "Bull Ring" Had a great time there... one of my favorite duty stations with a lot of great shipmates.
