  1. I was looking at a picture of the “strip” outside the main gate when I remembered a night I was on my back to the base, and one of the men in my barracks/dorms had become quite intoxicated and climbed to the top of one of those trees just outside the “hori” restaurant. The AP’s arrived on the scene, but he wouldn’t come down until a friend of his challenged him to a fight by saying he would whip the guy’s *** if he would come down, and that did the job. When he jumped from the lower limb, the AP’s took him to the base. That was in 1957.
