Subic Bay History, Very Interesting!

Recommended Posts

Bastonjack's Midway movie review reminded my that I was going to post this.  There are several Wiki's about Subic Bay but I don't think I had read this one, or if I had, it has expanded a lot.  If you enjoy reading Philippine history and U.S. military history, it is an interesting read!

My first visit to Subic was in 1971 aboard a ship. Alava pier. 18 yrs old. Loved the place from the start. Had a ships party at Grande Island. That's why I'm here now. I love the laid back attitude of the Filipinos.:dance:

Grande Island is reopening soon!  I hope it is not too expensive!

Triple LIKE Don!  Thank you!  As a young and foolish sailor of US 7th Fleet, I was intimately familiar with Subic Bay and of course, my hometown of Olongapo City.  

Actually, that is where I finally got "de-virginized".  I mentioned this before, but I believe I was the only senior graduating from HS.....still a virgin.   After nearly two years of electronic tech schools, I made my first WestPac deployment.  Yeah, Olongapo was 7th Fleet "Fantasy Island".

I lost mine there too. I immediately fell in love.:tongue:
