Is that the Subic bay entrance ?

It looks familiar I served on the USS Ajax and did a 3 or 4 day R&R there back in 1980

after the first day the memories got a little fuzzy.......... ;)

Clifford, yes it is. Good eye! It has probably changed a lot since you were there last. The exchange is now a duty free store. Spanish Gate is still there. A bunch of restaurants, hotels, a mall and a casino are now located on what used to be the old Naval Base and it's called the Subic Bay Freeport Zone. The Korean shipbuilder Hanjin had a yard on Subic Bay as well, it's been shutdown since they filed for bankruptcy.

I thought so, and I probably wouldn't recognize most of it now I'm sure. 
Ajax was decommissioned in 85 and I have heard it is now an artificial reef.
 
            Getting Old Sucks  !!!!               B)

 

By the way is that a tin can yer on  ??   and if or not what is the name ?

if it is an older one I may have done some work on it as Ajax was a tender.............. B)
