    A friend of mine was telling some stories yesterday and revealed that when he was 5yo he and his family were evacuated from Negros by submarine mid-WWII, and taken to Australia! Evidently because someone in the family was a US citizen.

    He does't remember a lot of it because he was so young, but he was told later that there were DON'T TOUCH signs all over the inside of the sub.

    They met the sub near Bayawan somewhere, and were depth charged along the way to Oz because the captain of the sub was still hunting Japanese ships during the trip...

    The US didn't bill the family for that but they did charge them for the boat trip from Oz to USA 6 mos later..

    He's the guy that owns the building Pasta King is in. Some of you may know him
