Okinawa Prison (Part 10)

I remembered one night, a couple of weeks after my restriction ended I felt the need to relieve myself from the “oki goggles.” That being said those that know what I mean it is when you are confined to the Okinawa bases with very little females to look as as the majority of the populations were men. The women that made up the small percentage were most likely family members or spouses. Of the remaining females, the ones that looked good were always taken and people would do whatever for them. The remaining that were not taken were the ugly slut types that would have a different man every weekend. Eventually getting pregnant. While I was in Okinawa I took every opportunity I could to leave base. To do something. Anything. My usual outings were as followed: McDonald’s, Hoka Hoka Tei, CoCo Ichiban, Kokusai St, Mihara St, Naha, the arcade to name a few. I did what I could to “escape” the EGA even if it meant for a couple of hours.

One of the places I remembered very well was a place called Mihara St. or as many know it as “Whisper Alley.” Now those of you who have been there know what it consist of, rows and rows of hookers;bars and bars in between. I did not want to waste my time chasing tail on base so I did it the smart way and took a honcho out to the place of pleasure. Getting a libbo buddy to come out with you on a work day is very challenging but sometimes a little persuasion and some McDonald’s would usually do the trick so I would always go out on Wednesdays. One night I remember I went to the company’s shit bag room Lcpl. Nasti who was a funny dude to watch as he did not care about being on time to work, doing the right thing or following orders. This dude seriously did not give a shit and I kind of admired him for his bravery. I go knocking on his door and he comes out all drunk. “What up!?” he says. “Want a beer?” Is how I replied but I also implied that he had to come with me to Mihara so that I could get him a beer at the little hole in the wall bars while I did my thing.

“Mihara dori kudasai.” Mihara street please is what I told the honcho driver as he sped out of base. Lcpl. Nasti was burping and slurring in the back seat and I was speaking my Japanese to the honcho driver. We arrive in the zig zag concrete jungle at middle part of the island where all the apartments and condos end up leading you to this hidden hub of eutopia where you could actually have a good time drinking and look at some beautiful national women with out the repercussion of being in trouble of having a female in the barracks. I got Lcpl. Nasti some sake and some Orion beer and he was happy watching a base ball game on T.V. I went out to do my shopping and I did my thing for about 45 minutes. I get relieved of all the stress I had for the day and I go back to the (Izakaya) Japanese for little bar and I expect to see Lcpl. Nasti waiting for me to go back on base. What I saw was Lcpl. Nasti leading a little Japanese party with Japanese men and women in suits, eating sushi, beer in one hand, arms over each other while Lcpl. Nasti was standing up singing kareoke. I come in and he introduces me to the nationals and they bought five more bottles of sake for all of us to drink. Fast forward a couple of hours and Lcpl. Nasti is slapping me in the face and I am knocked the fuck out on the couch this time the T.V off, the chef cleaning up, the nationals gone and Lcpl. Nasti poiting to his watch. I look down and see that we have fifteen minutes to get back on base or else we get burned. We get a taxi and pay him extra to drive extra fast to get us back on base. We make it at 2356, four minutes before inferno time and we make it back to the barracks. I go to my room at around 0200 and pass out into a drunken spell. Two and a half hours later we get woken the hell up by Sgt. Nazi and all his Corporals and we are ordered to get our stuff ready for a stupid change of command ceremony that I totally forgot about. I get up, ground spinning, put my shit on and try to go out when my roommate points out that I am missing an alligator clip and motivatingly says he won’t “let me” get out of the room like that and he proceeds to get the NCO’s. They come in and start chewing my ass and telling me to find it but I could not find it as I did not have it. Finally one Corporal lends me a spare one and called me a “shit bag” for not being prepared.

Lcpl. Nasti also woke up late as he was drunk as usual and you saw a group of NCO’s gathered around him screaming to his face. He was just impervious as usual as he did not give a shit. We all finally get in formation after all our uniforms, LBV’s, canteens and rifle slings were inspected and we were waiting to stand by to march to the armory to pick up our weapons. The clouds were looking pregnant and we knew that there was going to be some serious rain to come and we waited inside in the first floor by the duty before we went out. “What that fuck are you doing motherfuckers!” Sgt. Burn said “get the fuck outside in fucking formation dick faces!” Is what he replied. We get outside in formation and just wait. We heard a thunder and “boom” is what we heard as it came with out a warning. The rain was hitting first a couple of yards behind us and the rain drops sounded like hail hitting the floor. We got soaked in 3 seconds from cover to boot and it was a rain that did not let up. We were getting so soaked that the bill of the cover looked like a little water fall falling in front of your face. All the Sgt’s were discussing inside what to do and decide who was going to march us to the armory. I guess a couple of them forgot to march or they did not do any Corporals or Sergeants courses. Anyways we were outside in this heavy ass rain for a long time while the Sergeants were arguing and had to call another Sergeant to march us to the platoon. As the Sergeant finally comes out I am freezing, miserable and sick to my stomach from last night’s escapade. As soon as I heard the “rrrrrrright, FACE!” I said to myself, “this is going to be one long day.”

    Yea Okinawa has sure gotten fucked up since I was there.. I love Okinawa hell I lived with my girlfriend off base in her apartment.. I kept my locker in the barracks squared away and participated in field day other than that I was not on base.. But they really fucked that up! Rape.. what fucking moron would rape anything in Okinawa? I thought to myself “you gotta be fucking shitting me” with all the free p***y on that island, it takes a real moron to rape anyone! I say cut their balls off and make an example..
    If your that hard up fucking buy some pussy.. GodDam fucking idiots.. Then I hear they are sending all the Marines out in the middle of no where or to Guam.. WTF is that! I’m telling you it is your Commander in Chief! Liberal Muslim loving Hippy bitch!

    • Billiam201

      So, somehow the president is to blame because some idiot jarhead raped a Japanese national?

      Explain that one to me.

      If love to hear it.

      • USMCLoveHateRelationship

        Never said the rapes are Obama’s fault.. I did say the rape is some dumb fuck jarhead not knowing how much free pussy there is on that Island! To elaborate on what I meant The duty in Okinawa sucks now because the present Commander in Chief Barrack Hussien Obama.. Closing bases and cramming everyone in rural areas where you have nothing to do but drink…

        • oldr

          “I love Okinawa hell I lived with my girlfriend off base in her apartment.. I kept my locker in the barracks squared away and participated in field day other than that I was not on base”

          Yeah right! I know the score about what its like to deploy, and be stationed on Okinawa, and your BS sounds a little too self serving to be true! Tell me how your command allowed you to have such freedom when they imposed so many other petty restrictions on everyone else!

          “Commander in Chief! Liberal Muslim loving Hippy bitch”
          that is far from an intelligent statement about Obama and his policy successes, and failures! You have a right to your own politics and opinion, but to blame Obama for every problem in the military is just asinine!

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            You ask how? Well Marine I was in Okinawa in 1991… Before all the Bullshit Marines have to put up with today!!! Believe it or not there was a time before Rapes that Marines of any rank could do what they wanted as long as they were back in Formation the next morning! or if Friday as long as you were in Formation on Monday ready for PT!

          • oldr

            Ok- my first deployment to Oki was in 1992, so now ( given my first six months on that island) your version of looser restrictions are a little more believable. The second deployment I did it got progressively worse! And you know as well as do that I don’t blame junior Marines now for having to put up with some of the petty and childish restrictions they have today!

            I’m not completely negative about the Corps, but don’t hesitate to criticize it when it’s due. I see it as a culmination of all the bad trends that were gaining momentum in the 90s and early 2000’s

            No, a cat doesn’t have possession of my tongue. On my end, sometimes it takes hours for a message to appear.

            My basic advice to young people today- be honest and realistic about what the USMC experience is like and reinforce the fact that there are alternatives. If they want to join- fine, it’s their choice but they shouldn’t be surprised when bad things end up happening!

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            Thank you! Semper Fi.. Now I agree with everything you just posted.. I know things got really bad for Marines on Okinawa after the 93 rape.. I was on Pendleton in 1st Mar Div when that happened.. But I knew it was a matter of time between 91-92 we got away with a lot!

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            I could tell some stories but better left alone.. Semper Fi! to any devil dog that put up with all those restrictions.. Okinawa would of killed me if I was not living with my girlfriend!

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            I really felt sorry for Marines who were confined to 3rd Mar Div.. I was chilling with 3rd FSSG 3rd LSB on Camp Foster.. and I Loved it!

          • oldr

            That explains a lot! I was with the 3rd Mar Div, and it was restrictive even in 92, but not remotely as bad as what it has evolved into today!
            In Okinawa, if your lucky to get FAP’d out to a unit that is more progressive about not overly controlling their Marines that makes your time on that miserable island more bearable.
            btw- how do you get your comments to post so quickly?

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            Not sure on post I made an account thru discuss

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            I wish every Marine could of experienced what i had.. I met my girlfriend thru a friend and it took a few moths before but i fell madly in love with her! It was destiny I was in before restrictions came down

            BTW I am still married to that Japanese girlfriend after 26 years

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            Also Brother.. The USMC experience is just that an experience! Now even though I Am a “Hollywood Marine” I do not fall for commercials or Science fiction! I knew the Marine Corps was not for P***ys.. I was a kid that needed that and I served Honorable until I was a Man! I do believe like the Japanese say you are not grown up until your 40’s! at 19 I thought i knew everything but in my late 40’s I know I did not know shit then.. Hindsight is a Mutha Fucker! Anyway Semper Fi! Great Conversation!

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            And No I do not blame it all on Obama.. I think it is also this Generation.. The internet generation… There was a time when Marines bitched about the Corps amount themselves and did not disrespect in an open public forums…

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            One thing I can tell you is that I do not Bullshit.. During my time we were not restricted! I was stationed on Foster so I was in Okinawa City.. I feel for anyone stuck in the boonies.. and my story would probably be different if I would have been stuck in Division!

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            Well whats up Marine? Cat got your tongue?

        • Billiam201

          The duty sucked in Okinawa during the Bush administration, too. That was when they came down with the asinine “liberty buddy” policy. I believe the closing of Futenma was agreed on around that same time, but I don’t remember that part well enough to say definitely.

          Regardless of the politics of the president, the marines’ policy of “punish the lance corporals regardless of the rank of the offender” is the issue. I (and thousand of others) were secured to the base because a Gunny got drunk and slammed his motorcycle into a Japanese national’s car after leaving the e-club, where he had been meeting his 19-year old girlfriend behind his wife’s back.

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            Wee Billiam, I don’t know where you were stationed, I was on Camp Foster 3rd LSB and I arrive in 1991 and left in 1992 and I Spent 9 months of that tour living with my Japanese Girlfriend and I did not have any or remember any restriction to base… Only lock down I remember was when a typhoon hit the island!

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            As a Matter of fact a Marine I served with still lives on the Island and I met up with him last year, when we revisited Oki.. I gotta say it has changed a lot since my time..

          • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

            Sunabe seawall is pretty much gone We could only find a small part that I remembered.. And Marines I spoke to were restricted told me they hd to be back on base by a certain time.. It just was not the same.. I remember the clubs New York New York & the Pyramid that was my time on Okinawa.. NO BASE RESTRICTIONS!

      • USMCLoveHateRelationship

        Quote “Then I hear they are sending all the Marines out in the middle of no where or to Guam.. WTF is that! I’m telling you it is your Commander in Chief! Liberal Muslim loving Hippy bitch!”

        • Master LCpl

          They need to be careful about Guam. Remember, Hank Johnson thinks if there are too many people there the island may tip over and fall into the sea.

          • USMCLoveHateRelationship

            LMFAO… You know it..

      • USMCLoveHateRelationship

        My best time in the Marine corps was spent on Okinawa..

      • USMC!Love!Hate!Relationship!

        Never said that… The rape is the fault of a dumb ass piece of shit! That was to dumb, ugly or insecure to know how much free pussy is on that Island! The closure of bases! and relocation to remote areas is the Commander & Chiefs Fault!
