i saw your video about alongapo and altough i am pleased for the local people at the same time i am saddened.i was in the navy and stationed on the uss midway in 1974-1977 and spent time in looked different back then and im sure it was much different then than it is now.i know the philippino people want mor modernization and commerce in thier city but i live in the united states and am completely surounded by commercial memories of alongapo without the commercail modernization was what held much charm.i hate to see to much modern world come to the beautifull city of's funny everyone in the philippines wants to move to america(not everyone)and right now i would love to live in the philippines.i am desperate for a simpler way of life and have grown very weary of the stressfull lifestyle here in the states.i payed $1.17 for one tommatoe in the grocery store the other day.

I spent 5 years in and around olongapo while abord the Enterprise. I will always remember all the bars. The Big E. The Jungle, the thrilla in Manilla. Bageo, Leyte Pier, what a trip to see the same place 29 years later.

I am so happy to see that Olongapo City has progressed so much since I was there in the late 1960s with the US Navy. One thing that hasn't changed is the beauty of its people. I have always had a place in my heart for the Filipino people. And hey...your boxers arent' too bad either!!!!!!
