Memories For This Unit

Best Moment
West Pac Detachment, Subic Bay, RPI

Other Memories
I was assigned as Chief Master at Arms for the detachment. Since our unit was small an E5 filled this position. I also served with the base Provost Marshall patrolling the Bay. I remember catching two Filipinos cutting into the fence at the Naval Magazine and turned them over to the Philippine Constabulary.
I also did a stint as Rear Admiral Price's driver.
