I was stationed with the Army in Southern Taiwan( I was in the AF). One afternoon
a few us went over to the harbor where the ships were cut up for steel.
The ships are bought up fully stocked. One of the soldiers bought some sea flares.
About 2 weeks before a shanty area burnt down. 2 of the soldiers came back drunk around 1 am and decided to go on the roof and shoot them off. The first one just missed one's face- now they know how to set them off. They thought the flares were beautiful and then they started floating down with all the wooden buildings around. The next morning the Naval Police came by about the flares. The Police had a complaint from the Chinese Military because they were training with the US Marines who were on their way to Viet Nam. It sears the Chinese were using flares for troop movements and the wrong colors were going off. The guys got extra detail for a month- the Good Old Days.
