My name is John Brown, and I'm retired Navy. During my visit to the Philippines in March of 1991, I met a girl who worked at the "Bayview Inn", out in Subic City, and her name was "Charito".. She & I got along very well, and I've often wondered about how she's been doing, especially since the base closure. Anyone knowing of her whereabouts please contact me.
Also, there was this girl at the "Cockeyed Cowboy" named Rowena, that I met in September 1986. She was very special to me. Anyone knowing of her whereabouts please contact me. Thank you.
P.S.: Anyone who's ever been to Subic Bay, I'm sure, hold some special memories of that place. I know I do.

Just trying to find anyone who knew a girl that was there sometime around 1990 or before. She supposedly worked for a Navy guy stationed on base. Her name was Adolor Lapuz.
I"m trying to locate a girl I met in Olongapo City in 1971. Her name is Virgie Cabal and she worked close to the river, where you came through the gate. She stayed with a cousin that lived off to the right of the river,but she lived about 40 minutes outside of Olongapo. If anyone knows if she is still around, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks, John.

I served at the Cubi Point Marine Barracks between 1973 and 1975. I arrived there as a E-4 and left a E-5. During my time in the Philippines, I fathered a child by a Filipino lady named ELIZABETH, she went by a nick name of LISA, which may have been spelled Liza. Have very little information to go on in my search, but hoped that maybe you could post my story on your site.
My situation in this search is kind've difficult since the lady I mentioned was married to a US Navy man who had left the Philippines in November 1973, unknown to me when I met Elizabeth in December 1973. She became pregnant by me during January to March 1974 and had the baby during 1974 at the US Naval Hospital. No doubt she tried to pass this child off as her then husband, but when he returned to the Philippines in July 1974 he abandoned her and the child due to he knew he could not have been the biological father, due to pregnancy dates, as well as the fact he was a black male and I am a white male.
I have been trying to locate this child since 1985 but had little to go on, and purchased a computer in 1998. I am attaching a photo of me taken during 1973 that would give anyone who knew me some recognition of me. Elizabeth may or may not even be in the Olongapo city area but she was 26 years old during 1974 time period and would be around 52 to 53 years old today. The child being born in 1974 would be between 26 to 27 years of age.
Since I am sure Elizabeth has just as little information on me as I had on her. We lived together briefly between Decemeber 1973 to April 1974 and I was angry at her for her deception of being married and not telling me. I really just tried to forget her. But the child was a innocent in this story. I am disabled and have a terminal illness and wish to find my child while I am still living and awknowledge them and help them in any way I can. Thank you for reading this.

My name and mailing address: Ralph
Hill, PO Box 2105, Quartzsite, Arizona, 85346 (updated 8-30-05)
My email address: firstname.lastname@example.org (updated 10-17-05)
I submitted a request to have my case posted on your site, I just today recieved a email from the mayor of Olongapo city which might lead me to discoverying my childs where abouts.
As I stated in my information, ELIZABETH, the lady I am seeking, with whom I fathered a child in the Philippines in Olongapo, was unknown to me married at the time we met in December 1973, she became pregnant between January 1974 to March 1974, this would have put the birth between August 1974 to maybe in January 1975 at the latest. Elizabeth's US navy husband left the Philippines in November 1973 and returned in July 1974. He found her pregnant and abandoned her in the Philippines. He could not have been the biological father.
This child mentioned by the mayor of Olongapo, based on a birth date of December 19th, 1975 could not have been my child unless the actual date of birth was falsified and it was December 19th 1974. This might have been possible very easily to have the Philippine birth records falsified especially when late birth registerations are quite common in Olongapo, but the US naval birth records would not have been so easily changed to reflect a different date, but this does lead me to wonder did Elizabeth knowing the date of her pregnancy and birth and the fact her husband was not physically in the Philippines during that time cause her to later try and fix the dates to more match a believable birth record for later use to gain US citizenship. It is an idea, since Elizabeth was not known for honesty, but I do not believe this would have worked unless somehow she could have changed the US base hospital records or hoped they would not be checked. I cannot imagine a US embassy investigation into a birth claim not checking the base hospital records unless the birth was not claimed to have occured there, but it seems the birth was listed there by someone either the mother or the US base officials.
It is worth me checking into because there could not have been many ladies with the first name of Elizabeth who bore a child at the US naval hospital during the time in question. I am attaching the email so if by any chance this Leslie Mae Dailey has contacted your organization in the past and maybe contacted her alleged biological father and been denied as to paternity this may be the child I am seeking. It is the closest I have come to anyone remotely possible as my child. The birth date is the key, if it is factual and correct as being occured in December 19, 1975, then she cannot be mine, but if by any remote chance the date was entered incorrectly by mistake or by intent and was really December 19, 1974, then she is a very likely candidate for being my child. It is worth me mentioning to you and anyone else I can. Any assistance in locating Ms. Leslie Mae Dailey is greatly appreciated. Thank you and may god bless you.

While I was visiting Subic in 1986, my seadad introduced me to two young ladies at the Midnight Rambler in the Barrio. Eleven years later I decided I married the wrong one. Hahaha.

I am interested in finding out how she is doing these days. Please write me. Thanks.

I married a Filipina during a Westpac, and lost touch with her. She was one of the "Toss me Coins" Queen outside the main gate. She went by JENNIFIER, but her true name was VIOLETA C. ALCANTARA. Her father, Simeon, used to live at 15 Otero Ave, Ext, in Olongapo. As I understand it, she had my child in 1978, but we lost touch due to her family's interference. I'd like to get hold of her, and see if its true, and just to see hows she has fared over the years. I have added the only photos I have left. Any info and any help you might provide will be most appreciated. Thanks!

My name is Phillip Kuhn and was stationed at Subic Bay from 1968-1970 attached to PSRD (Yard Tugs). The friend I'm seeking has to be at least in his late 60's or early 70's. His name is John (do not remember his last name) and he worked in the electronics shop repairing radios. Several of the personnel stationed there use to go to John's house on the weekend and we would buy spaghetti, sauce, and meat which his wife would cook, there was so much the whole town would come over and eat. John lived about a hour and a half bus ride from the base and the village was small. Just wanted to let him know he was not forgotten, as the letters sent were never answered nor returned as undeliverable.
Hi..My name is Louis and back in 1976 I was staioned in Subic Bay Olongapo City and I met a wonderful girl which worked in one of the clubs pretty close to the gate, whom I came to love very much, but when it came time to leave, I never hesitated. Like a fool, on account of my enlistment being up, I returned to the states, though now I wish I never left. I didn't re-enlist and I've missed her ever since. I don't even know if she remembers me but, I never forgot her. She use to call me HONEY-CO if anyone knows her please have her contact me. I WOULD BE SO HAPPY to hear from her after all this time. I can't remember the club but I met her 2 sisters of one was involved with a SGT and I of course forgot his name. I also met her parents back then. Gee I hope she still around?? I know before I left she had just moved, and the last pictures I have of her were on the upstairs balcony, but I never got her new address . How stupid could I have been??? Anyway, its a long shot but I'll be waiting to hear anything. Hope you remember AMY?

My name is DM Tony Newlin,1stSGT USMC retired. From Oct 1967 thru May 1969 I was a member of "Special Landing Force Bravo" USMC stationed aboard the USS Tripoli (LPH-10) and the USS Valley Forge (LPH-8). During this period I made many visits to Subic Bay/Olongapo between combat operations in Vietnam. I fell in love with a very special girl who went by the name Lucy Marino or Lucy Bulo. Lucy worked at the Birdland Club on Rizal Ave, she had red hair. She was my only girlfriend and I truly believe that we were in love. I last saw her in April 1969 as I was "forced" to the states in May. I returned to Vietnam Oct 1969 and I was suppose to go to the PI for R&R during April 1970. As luck would have it the PI was placed under Marshall Law and I was sent to Hong Kong. When I arrived in Hong Kong The USS Tripoli was also there. At which time my Navy Buddies told me that Lucy had given birth to my son. They had all seen him and said that he looked just like me. There was no doubt in their minds that the child was mine. I was medivaced to the States during June 1970 and when I arrived home in Philadelphia I was surprised to find a letter form Lucy telling me about the baby. After I was released from the Philadelphia Naval Hospital I again went back to Vietnam in Sept 1970. During this tour of duty I was assigned to a Korean Marine Corp Recon Company Operating in the Que Son mountains southwest of Da Nang. I received a letter from Lucy advising that she was in California and that she wanted me to come and get her. I was in no position to leave Vietnam and go and meet her. She called my family who was more than willing to help her, but we lost contact with her after that. In 1982 while stationed at Camp Lejune, NC. I met one of Lucy's aunts who was married to a marine. She told me all about my son and that his name was "Antonio". She gave me an address to write to him, but I never had the heart to send him a letter after such a long time. I lost the address. I retired from the Marine Corp in 1986 and have since retired from NJ Law Enforcement. I am married but have never had any children, so I asking anyone who can help me find Lucy and my son "Antonio". Let them know that I love them deeply. I will travel anywhere to find them.
I Brohmer, Ricky was a Ch-53 Crew Chief TAD with HMM165, in the summer of 1978. I was stationed aboard LPH 3 the U.S.S. New Orleans. My experiences in Olongopo were many and all good. I met so many wonderful people, musicians, bar girls, bar owners and fellow Marine and sailors. I was wondering if anyone knew the where about of a young women named Adelpha De La Cruz who was a hostess at the Friendly Bar II in Olongopo. I have thought of her over the many years and wonder if she was still in the Philippines. If Adelpha is still living in the Philippines, please let me know.
MY name is "Michael Powell", in 1975 I was stationed at the marine base in Olongopo where I fell in love and married a young ladie name "Amilia" I cannot think of her maiden name but I have missed her for so many years. I did her wrong after she lost our child by falling in a store. For a year and a half I pushed her away and would not answer her letters because mentally I could not accept the lost of my first and only child. I have searched for years for her but because I could not remember her maiden name no one could help me. All I know is that her frist name is "Amilia" and she had a sister that was in the hospital for a knee operation in 1975 and she had introduced me to some of her other family.When I frist met "Amilia" she was working in a tailor shop on the strip while I was walking shore patrol. If some one could please let me know some thing it would put my heart at ease.
