“We called them the Habu at the base, locally.”
I’ll bet there are few here that know the origin of that moniker.
Ever run into a real Habu while at Okinawa? Fast, aggressive and deadly.

Yes, I have actually. There used to be fights between Habu and Mongoose.

I do. I was a pre-teen Army brat in the mid-sixties, and lived just south of Kadena for some years. I once caught a baby Habu and tried to pickle it in rubbing alcohol. You wouldn't believe the stink when I opened that jar a year later .. LOL
