What is Subic Bay?
Subic Bay meaning Philippines port also known as ‘Pubic Bay, the Asshole of the Orient.’ Was a major stop off point between South Vietnam and The World (CONUS). The city just outside the main gate of the Naval base was Olongapo City or ‘Po City’, noted for it’s night clubs and many agreeable women. Leaving the base a sailor had to cross over a bridge that went over a drainage channel, also known as ‘shit river’, because of the constant raw sewage and filthy conditions. Young children would tread water just below the bridge and yell at sailors to throw coins in the water, which they would dive for and come back to the surface with the coin in their mouth.
