36 Blue Star Club

Nancy the bar girl (on the left, behind bar) put up with a lot of rowdy crap from the Blue Star pilots. You can see the Viet Cong skull on the wall (beneath a captured AK-47). Our flight surgeon had boiled the flesh off, then a nice soak in, "Clorox. Clorox will give your skull it's whitest white," said Doc. This was where we enjoyed the posh high life at the Blue Star camp at Phan Rang. July 1966.
