... I'll help you.

Did you ever buy money meat from that dude who could palm a peso bill like a professional magician? We used to buy it from him just so we could watch him change a 10 peso bill. He'd count out change and then hand it to you and you'd count it and it'd be a peso short. No one could figure out how he did it.

Lucky for us we only stopped there overnight a few times to load 5" ammunition. It would really have sucked to be stationed at Subic.

Yeah, you got that right. When the Indy did an Indian Ocean det after I got out, a lot of squids from my squadron got into big trouble for missing ships movement from shacking up with cute Philippinas and going ua. One guy named Hertzler never made it back. I suppose he driving a Jeepney in Manilla for a living now. Poor sap.
