Best Friends Greg Steinmetz from Wisconsin, Bill Lucas from Indiana and Roy Seymour (not certain on his home state).
Worst Moment Having one too many San Miguel beers one night at the Breezeway Lounge (the Airman's Club). I heard the guys carried me back to my hootch bed - it was that bad. When I went to work the next day, I asked CMS Hansen, my NCOIC, if I could have the day off and he said no way. It was a hard lesson to learn.
Other Memories Taking the ferry to Cebu, drinking beer and laying in the hammock at Marigondon and Maribago beaches on Mactan and riding the back of a motorcycle (the one and only time in my life that I was ever on a motorcycle) with Bill Lucas through the hills and barios of Mactan. Making the MARS phone calls back to family in the U.S. were interesting, too short and challenging at times.
