Return to The Borchardt Family
Bob Hope field The field where Bob Hope used to entertain when visiting Ubon Royal Thai Air Base.
It doubled as an athletic field used mostly for softball.
Missile Test The missile bay where I spent most of my working hours.
Our job was to keep the AIM-7s and AIM-9s combat-ready
and, later, ready for shipping out as part of the evacuation.
Missile Shed The shed where AIM-7 Sparrow and AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles were stored.
We often had to go out and clean up after the birds...
Duan Friend Duan and niece bringing home my favorite dinner
-- fried rice!.
Doy Portrait My very first Thai friend, Doy. She took me under her wing and made sure I didn't get taken advantage of. I owe her a lot for making my stay in Thailand such a rewarding experience...
