You'll have to forgive me for my OPSEC concern for US Military here. Perhaps I am overreacting from living here in the the 80's and experiencing firsthand the slaughter of fellow US Military by sparrow units. One incident, i missed being one of the assassinated by minutes, another I can still hear the gunfire of the slaughter from McDonalds, Dau.

As jetlag stated he is monitoring it and he will be the one to correct the situation. We (many if us) saw and heard things we wish we hadnt...we all have our stories and for my own...this isnt the place...ptsd affects some if us..we move on.

Roger that. I was there....whether NPA Sparrow units with single head shot, the contractors killed in ambush or Col Rowe killed by drug corruption in Manila...but never Subic (Thank you Gordon family!). It's my life.

I DEROSed from Clark two hours before all that went down. Landed and saw it on the news, was pretty shocking. Was the end of the AC party as we knew it then.

U.S. Marine Slain Near Base in Philippines
May 6, 1990
A suspected Communist gunman shot and killed a U.S. Marine sergeant outside the American-run Subic Bay naval complex, prompting officials Saturday to restrict travel by all U.S. military personnel in the Philippines as a precaution. The U.S. Navy identified the slain American as Gunnery Sgt. John S. Fredette, 34, of Buena Park, Calif. He was attached to the 323rd Marine Fighter Squadron based in El Toro, Calif., and was on temporary duty at Subic.

Actually it was a robbery gone bad by two.. trike driver and a blue shirt . I Know because WE worked the case (I'm not military ).... Personal friends then and now with the Agent who broke the case. We were deep into Bataan day after digging up info. Shooter was the "Blue Shirt" . GySgt was big guy and resisted and boom
They were charged, but as usual there, they just waited us out and by time we all left in 1992, the case died.

And I was personal friends with the Gunnys immediate C.O. as we had gone to TBS together. He stayed in flying and I got out and on to much more fun "things" with far less "rules". No I'm getting older and slower in a young man's game, so, set to retire Soon.
