Vietnam era Subic Bay was a thriving liberty area for those involved in the war. Lives were intertwined and what you did to survive was forgotten when immersed within the Olongapo fantasy. Every emotion a person is capable of comes in waves to the surface. Mixed inside the confines of this boiling liberty port are people on their way to war, coming back alive or making the most of a short R&R. The entire enterprise is populated by permanent residents determined to satisfy and profit. This exhilarating experience is shared in this book by someone who experienced the area first hand for nearly two years and would happily transport to the same time and place again if possible. The story is also for the thousands who caught a gimps of Subic Bay on their way to war and could never return. This intense immersion into life would have filled a void they would never have experienced again had they lived a long time. I know, I have lived another fifty years and have never come close to such wonderful feelings, very different from the joy of having a family and successful career. Open this book and sample a small taste of the sights, sounds and emotions available to the visitors of Subic Bay during the Vietnam era. Believe me, the thousands who were actually there and came home have never forgotten the experience, enjoy.
