June, 1968 Nakhon Phanom Royal Thai Air Force Base. It was home to the "Secret War" until it was exposed by the Washington Post. A stones throw from the Mekong River, Ho Chi Min Trail and bordering Laos. The base operations included special ops, ground support for missions and rescue of downed pilots. Jump off base for the "Son Tay" rescue mission of American pilots held in North Vietnam. Back then it was like a town in the Old West, dirt roads and plenty of saloons.
