During the Reunion Luncheon, Stan Streicher told of a story that happened in 1969 when some of the Caspers went into town (Bong Son) and spent hundreds of dollars of Monopoly Money in the bars.  This took place on the day that the MPC (Military Pay Currency)  bill design was changed throughout South Vietnam.  Long story short, the MP's came to "Ghost Town" looking for anyone who was involved in this caper -- when questioned, Stan didn't know anything about it.  However, he just learned recently that several of the Caspers were involved.  So nearly 40 years later, we decided to play a trick on Stan and staged a similar event at a bar -- but he gets caught trying to pay the bar tab!
