As any Marine who has tipped a beer in one of the base clubs knows ANYTHING can and usually does happen at an Enlisted Club.

Went TDY to Hanson back in the early 60's. Wandered up to the club and was invited to sit down at a table that had a couple of empty chairs. The kid that invited up started getting louder and louder. Soon the club manager showed up and told him to quiet down or he would have him thrown out. Kid said he just came back for 14 mission in Vietnam (Where?). This was before it was well known. He said his job was demo and he would go in and blow up down helicopters and such. Don't know if that is really what he did, but this was 61 or 62. Later the band was taking requests, so we requested "Calif, here we come". Club Manager said he would not happen, because a riot would break out. When we left, some Marine was waiting for me outside the door. He dropped his packages and wanted to fight, because I was talking to his favorite waitress. I declined and we made our way back to the barracks.

One more while I am hogging the floor. While TDY at Hansen, a friend said he wanted to go up to Swab to visit a friend. He was in 3rd Recon before he came to us. Arrived at Swab to find out his friend was the Ham Radio Operator, so we spent the evening in his air conditioned shack while he patched phone calls to base. He placed a call to the "Hill Top Club" for some refreshments and a Staff NCO showed up with a bottle of Seagrams for us. Drank part of that while he finished up the patches. He asked if we wanted to go to town. We mentioned the curfew, but he said don't worry. We walked up to the Hill Top Club and arrived just as the Okinawan band was loading up to go downtown. We jumped into the back with them and off we went. Remember someone entering the bar and yelling there was a fight down the street. Everyone but me, my friend and out escort headed out to join it. Finally had to go back to base. Was not sure how we were going to get in the gate as the curfew was still on. He talked to the guard at the gate and we were waved in without problem.

When I was a Newbie in Iwakuni in 1978, Someone bought me a couple of shots of Absinthes as a Joke.
I went Totally Ape-shit Crazy and tore the bar apart. Woke up in an Ally the next day and got nabbed by Main-Gate MP's as I was heading back to base.
I explained what happened as best I could but couldn't remember a whole lot.
Anyway I ended up with a Capt's mast (Got Shit Details)and ended up paying for Mama-san's Bar that I trashed. She told me never to come Back after I apologized.
Oh well..You Live and Learn..

ACADAMA & Sun Torres was some of the worse rotgut brewed. Saki also.
We were warned that the Corps had this mess annualized and was found to contain urine, traces of lead and other impurities that I can't remember.
Just a sniff of that stuff was enough to cause my stomach to churn.
The Jap beer was mighty fine, some of the best.
I put away eight quarts one day and was still standing, not very well, but still standing.
HAW! I remember at Camp Hague the LUKES were digging a ditch by our roads and about half the Marine population had to walk across a makeshift bridge at least four foot wide.
On payday nights and a few days after it never failed, drunken Marines would try to maneuver across this bridge and several would fall off into the ditch and some were just to drunk to get out and gave up and went to sleep there.
It was always muddy and they would report in, chock full of mud, vomit and other disgusting oders following them.
BTW, it wasn't all that easy to walk a straight line across a four foot wide bridge.
Been there, done it.
