Is there anyone here that was on the Shore Patrol Unit for the 84/85 West Pac?  I would love to hear from some of my old teammates from then.

I was very lucky to be placed on Shore Patrol while Tarawa was in Dry Docks in Long Beach during the 1978/1979 time period. I had a lot of fun.

It was a good time, but for the 84/84 West PAC, we had a permanent Shore Patrol unit that when we made port, we were detached from all shipboard duties for the duration of the stay.  We were worked directly with the base police in Yokusuka, with the Thai police in Pattaya Beach, the British Royal MP's in Hong Kong. In Subic Bay we were attached to the Provost Marshall's office and worked for them, but patrolled on our own as duty Shore Patrol would.  We had a great time and it was a great team we had.
