"Where were you?"

I was in the Merchant Marine on a military charter. We carried supplies and ammo to all the American military bases (and some foreign governments too) on the Pacific rim.

I think the Thai port I was in was Satihip or something like that. Just going from memory here. I recall that it was maybe an hours cab ride from Bangkok. About all I can remember from the experience is that the beer was good, the girls were pretty, and I didn't see many tourists...
