” Military Story “

5 veterans, and a military story, it was slow diving in, something serious, something fun, and no other

I think I will write about other, but what

👣👣👣

Capas Tarlac

infamously known as Bataan

was now about 10 years free of Vietnam fallout

the heat was the same, rainy seasons the same

the people were the same

NPA & Blue Shirts were the same, but less intense

The 2 women I knew on the base, one was a Navy Specialist who loved others who served, and her Philippine fiancé, she was very loving, I may have been the only one she did not love, not that she did not want to, but I was shy, but we loved each other as military family.

She was a young, intelligent, and a pretty 20 something, about 5.3 with short blonde hair, and lots of energy. She was also very kind and flirty, and always professional when on duty! What is her name… ?

Well, the other woman, she was a young woman of 16 maybe, and she made more of an impact on me. She was innocent, I believe she was at least, and she also had short hair, it was black, and we only talked a few times. She always wore shorts and a shirt tied at the bottom – and a hat, it looked kind of Chicago style, thin in the front and thick in the back. I don’t know what we talked about, maybe her dreams of school, and what her life was like – her name… it’s Marina
