I had a layover on a MATS flight I was taking back to Lejeune. They put me up for a couple of days in a transit barracks and gave me a liberty card. We went down to TJ one day but I only went to the churches and gift shops!
Now France, and some other countries on the Med, is a different story. On my Med Cruise, I worked hard to meet as many people to show them how friendly American Marines were. If I remember correctly, I did meet a number of young ladies.
