Started by Vegas Vic Mar 24, 2016. 0 Replies

I'm doing some research and would appreciate feedback from those who were station dito at Cubi or SRF in 1990-91. Personally, I was there in the early 80's so much of my recollection is irrelevant…Continue

I was stationed as a mineman at Navmag from 86 to 89. I flew into Manila and had the worst hottest bus ride. In my blues!!! I met my first wife in olongapo at the solid gold club. Divorced in 91 but still chat on f b today. I learned a lot about my self and life by living in olongapo. I don’t regret anything.i was so proud to be an American sailor. Olongapo was considered commercial but barrio was the place to go.

who remembers the classes of busses class A,B,C,D. the Class A was subject to get robbed. We rode class D, wooded benches with folding tarp to keep out the rain, ordering food on the side of the road. A case of open San Miguel gave you unlimited passage on any road

no, only shore patrol and phillipine military were allowed fire arms. Firearms and weapons were only allowed in kitchens. These were real rattan sticks, because technically we were not stationed there. Our job was to protect americans during martial law. WE were there but technically never stationed there!!!

Comment by Adrian Hernandez on October 11, 2015 at 12:04am

Oh! Rattan sticks is slang for the ar-15.  Right on!  And what did the Philippine army carry?  I heard there was shooting too.  Yes?  I can't remember if the Mayor was reelected.  In fact, I don't remember the Mayor at all.

You had rattan sticks and the Philippine army personnel had...?  Heck, the bar guards downtown had shotguns.

Comment by john clark on October 10, 2015 at 11:19pm

we were the guys in the marine fatigues, flight boots, navy insignia pins and armed with rattan sticks and chaperoned by philipine army personnel. my chaperone joined the army because his recruiter told him to join before they would kill his mother

Comment by Adrian Hernandez on October 10, 2015 at 11:08pm

So it's true?  3 days!  Must have passed the time on Grande Island and Sampagita Club..  I wasn't sure.  Long time ago.  Thank you AFP for your protection.  And for keeping us safe and intact so we could go pick up where we left off.  

Now let's see, what bar did I start over at.  Um, a little help here again.
