|The Kitty Hawk by Darren Drake|
|At this date the USS Kitty
Hawk was stationed in Yokosuka, Japan.
When I was on the Kitty Hawk,
1977-1978, it was stationed in San Diego but we did have a chance to visit
Yokosuka, Japan for ten days.
The people here treated you well but
they didn't seem to really like American sailors, however, once I went
more than one mile away from the front gate of the base the Japanese people
were very nice.
Our country could take some lessons from the Japanese
I later found the reason why the Japanese people that
lived near the base didn't really like the Americans.
It was because
the drunks and trouble makers only went about a mile from the base.
This was a very bad representation of the American people.
