Subic Bay Closes
November 24, 1992, in Marine Corps history.
On November 24, 1992, Marines lowered the flag at the Subic Bay U.S. Naval Facility in the Philippines for the last time. The lowering took place during ceremonies to turn over the facility to the government of the Philippines, ending almost a century of U.S. presence in the country.
