This home video captures moments of leisure for sailors of the U.S. Navy while in Olongapo City, Philippines during the holiday season - a Christmas tree in a busy intersection wishes passersby "Maligayang Pasko at Manigong Bagong Taon," Filipino for "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year." Footage incudes sailors posing in front of the Alamo Club, Filipina women dancing for the camera, and sailors jumping overboard for what the film box label refers to as "Kemper County Ocean Swim Party."
