Moonlight Bunny Ranch was a short enough ride from Pickle Meadows MWTC, and well worth it. It's the same one featured on the HBO show. Cheap back in the day. Does anyone know if the units are getting any liberty after training, or are they scared to let them out into Carson City?
Too much fun. "Yeah, Ma, I'm going to confession," ("Bless me Father for I have sinned, a LOT!).

Get Some at the Nippa Hut
I would definately have to say PI. We owned the Mariposa Bar on Magsaysay Blvd. From the Sierra Club Rock Bar to the R and B, Hip Hop bar the Florida Club. Grande Island drinking Margarita's in the middle of Subic Bay sitting in the crystal clear water. The bar was so close you didn't have to get up for your drinks. Green Beach Zambales PI. Mama De Bablyeon,the smart, funny, incredibly generous Mayor who treated the Marines on op there like her own family. While on a small operation for CSSD-32 in support of 1/9 put us on the beach for about a week. We floated from Okinawa to Subic on the USS St. Louis and that was the very first time I disembarked from a ship to a Mike Boat, over the side using a net was awesome! A coordinated WWII style beach landing (1st wave). We set up a perimeter and that's how we met Mama De Bablyeon. She cooked lumpia, adobo and succulent shrimp plus evey cold beverage you ould think of. Kids everywhere, even kids that looked suspiciously caucasian were out playing at he beach and jungle. I asked Mama if there were Americans living here and she said no.....Why? Because I said he kid over there has blond hair and blue eyes. She replied Ohhhh, that is American Souvenir. I couldn't help but laugh since I am pretty sure I knew what she meant. So back to the op, one of my radio guys was about to celebrate his birthday and I had an idea. I spoke with Mama and asked he if she could help me for a surprise birthday party. For six cases of MRE's she would roast a pig, unlimited Lumpia, shrimp, fried rice and cold drinks. As an unknown added surprise, even to me was the after dusk hum of the banka boat motor filled with a little adult fun. Needless to say this week long op was not to boring after all. The party went off without a hitch and it will be one of the most memorable times in my short career. Does anybody remember the Nippa Hut near Angeles? Even though I still have a fog in my head about this amazingly unreal party palace. There was no rank at this place. I was sitting with a group of Airforce Full Birds and their wives (no BS), drinking some concoction that was served in these huge bamboo cups with the clubs logo all over the outside. This drink was powerful. The show went on for a couple of hours with dozens of hot little filipina's putting on an array of different skits and prowness of the......Well you know. This is really hard trying to keep this thing PG. Regardless, this was an an amazing show cappe off with a volunteer from the audience. Does anybody remember the Nippa Hut? Since we were in PI for six months, many of the guys had g/f's which they had to pay a relationship fee for a day, night, week or month and these girls were your honest and faithful g/f's until you left or you dumped em. So many more stories i could tell you about this adult playland. maybe next time I will tell you the story of Bon Jovi taking care of the troops while on a layover at Clark airbase in Angeles. The Vampire Club.

BRISBANE, AUSTRAILIA. 1974, Fox Co. 2/3, 1st Marine Brigade, aboard the U.S.S. Tulare, HQFMF didn't want to mix us with the Battalion from Okinawa so they shipped us off to Brisbane. We were the 1st U.S. Marine Unit to arrive there since WWII and Half the City met us at the docks. A 100 member Military Band played "The Marine's Hymn" (****ed off the swab jockies, They never played Anchors Away). If you were not "Adopted by a Civilian Family for 7-days, you had to be back aboard ship for Muster @ 0800 hours and you were given Liberty for another 24 hours. (The only way we could stand up was by leaning against one another). I was Smart... SHORE PATROL. Anybody got arrested, I along with my Royal M.P. "Mate" Ian "Spud" Murphy, would pick them up at the local Hoos-Cow and transport them back to the ship to get some rest before more Party Time. Spud took me and a USMC 1st Lieutenant to "Patrol" all the the Best Bars in Brisbane (we had to remove our MP armbands and pull our Dress Greens out and over our Duty Belts. A lot of the Pubs did not have bar stools just "Belly up to the Bar" put your foot up on the polished brass rail and enjoy a Pint (or Five) I don't know how many of you have had REAL Aussie Beer but it's FIVE times Stronger than anything we have. We were probably the ONLY MP's to call a cab back to the ship because non of us were sober enough to drive (the steering wheel was on the wrong side anyway, it was confusing enough Sober) OH I forgot to mention, They were so PROUD of what the UNITED STATES MARINES had done for them during WWII against the Japanese, that No One would accept our Money. A word of advice Don't ever try to Out Drink an Aussie, You will wake up in your rack back aboard ship and he will still be bellied up to the bar waiting for you to return. On our last day we had our Company Football Team (BIG MARINES) play Rugby against the 1st R.A.R.... Half of our guy's went back to Kaneohe Bay in Body Casts. Oh yeah and use your own imaginations about their Outrageous Women.... I have to carefull, My wife might read this and we were Married then too. OPERATION KANGAROO I OOOOHRAA!!

When I was in the Philippines (Subic Bay 1974) , we had "Cindarella Liberty" either in someones home or back on the Ship by 2400 hours, or you became target practice for the National Police. I never really got use to Balutes or San Migel Beer. L8R.
