    Do you want to know more about dear old Ramasun? I was there 1968-71 and I wrote a book about it…”Tales of Ramasun” available on Amazon.com. It was a strange world of spooks and spies and I was one of them…a Lao and Thai translator/interpreter and intelligence analyst. All gone now, and just about forgotten, but it is a piece of Thai history. If you are interested you can check out sample chapters of the book on Amazon. We used to call the place Thailand’s answer to the M*A*S*H 4077th with brainy unmilitary spooks instead of docs.

    Because of the use of agent orange in thai air force bases you may be eligible for compensation. I have Parkinsons and in the process of filing for compensation, I served in Ramasun 1971-72. Check it out I was amazed as I had to stumble upon it.

    We all pulled guard on perimeter until we hit e4 but va only gives comp to mil police. They don’t know they could not be beyond entrance to ops. Mp drove us out to perimeter n went back to cq, we pulled the guard duty but hedgers the comp. secondly the entire place was near the perimeter bell nco club was almost on perimeter. They rvsaying only perimeter was sprayed so only mp perimeter gets comp. A travesty
