Still hoping for an update on the chili cook-off on November 24th. The information on your home page only states the location as BLU WATER BEACH RESORT.

No time is listed and Google maps doesn't even show the place.

I am a service member living in San Juan, La Union and heard there's a network of veterans in that area. Can you recommend how I can get an RAO and where the closest one is located to San Juan, LU?

Many thanks in advance.

Good morning all!
Returning to Bauang after a few years hiatus, heard that the canteen is closed, gone forever! How sad!
Besides the paradise... where do you all hang out to share a cold beer or just some good conv?

If Emory Russell is still around there, tell him that "PJ" said hello. Used to fly with him in the 7th MAS.

Give him and his family our best regards.

Hello all,
I'm a 20 year Air Force veteran who will be leaving 1 Dec for the LA union area. I don't qualify to be a.member of the VFW but look forward to meeting fellow veterans. I plan on spending 4 months in the Philippines and then see from there what happens. Any thoughts or ideas on where to stay short term is appreciated.

I can't say that I'm surprised to read that La Cantina will be closing, a good experiment that just didn't end as planned. I was dropping by for lunch with my family on Saturday's whenever possible, we'll miss the ritual.

For those who made the effort to keep La Cantina alive a well done, you did a class job.
