Unfortunately, I couldn’t run fast enough. They caught up with me and didn’t release me until 21 years later. I miss those days!

Cheers!

I spent many hours in ‘Po City between ‘69 – ‘71. Pulled liberty with my brother one night and we both wrote home telling our folks that we had met there – although we left out most of the details – lol

When I came back from my last cruise, we manned the rail as we passed under the Golden Gate bridge. As we passed under the bridge, I yelled “THROW ME COIN” to the tourists watching us. There was a brief silence on deck, then near hysterical laughter. I heard later that the skipper was torn between fits of laughter and rants about a court martial for the SOB with the big mouth.

To explain that… kids would swim under the bridge from Subic Naval Base to Olongapo city… we would throw coins and watch the kids duck dive for them…the river was a sh*tty brown…funny at the time but sad now…
