The Streets of Korat .. 1968
"The Vietnam War is heating up since the Tet (Asian New Year) in '68, and
Korat is in another world of its own; isolated from the War by only a few hundred miles, defended by the American Air Force, Army in Support
and augmented by their own Thai Military Forces, our allies."

Take a tour of these major boulevards, see the buildings that lined them
and come away with memories; care of our Gallery Donor, John Strain.
