Dan Boatman of Tulsa OK. and Rick Palmer on liberty in Waikiki club in 1967. In Hawaii at that time the drinking age was 20 so we had a great time while there. The young lady was nice enough to sit and talk with us for a while. We certainly enjoyed her company, even for a short time. By the time we hit Pearl on the return trip I had turned 21. I spent my 21st birthday on the gunline off Cape Batangan South of DaNang. Ahh, those were good days.
Thanks to Ron Jewell for these two.
Note: If there is anyone unidentified and you know who it is please contact us. Thanks

Picture below  is from a boar hunt showing crew members with rifle and a killed beast with some local people around and kids no doubt in awe. I would be surprised if in todays navy crew members could still do this. Most countries have outlawed guns by law abiding  private owners anyway. I believe this is in Turkey.
