welcome to the forum USA!!! As you can see I never had any responses on that initial query... I think most of the expat late Vietnam era vets are AF types... I figure that within the next few years more ex-Ramasun folks will start getting ready to retire and move to Udon...

Yeah Dude,
I was at the 7th Rock and Roll Freak Show from July'74 till they kicked us out in April of '76. I was an MP and I know a lot of Hogs from the 7th. I've been here since 2000 and you're right just Zoomies over here in Udon.Lets link up and drink a beer. We can even go to the site if you wish. Looking forward to hearing from you.

I was stationed at Ramasun from May '68 - Mar '69 and July '70 - Feb '74. USAF 202 (98C for you Army types). Another nickname for the place was 7th Recon Ranger Field Station. :lol: I think quite a few old Non Soong GIs will be heading back to Udon in the next few years.

Just caught this site as I was searching for any recent pics of the FLR9.
Stationed at the 7th from Dec 73 to Mar 76. Best duty in the world.
98C, played B Ball and V Ball with "A" Co. But usually played Softball with a bunch of my "Hog" buddies.
Been to a couple of the 7th Reunions. One in DC and one in Kentucky.

Okay, I kind of remember a Frazee, so I presume that would be you. I think I was in your TAOT class at Fort Devens,(took 05H school at Pensacola with the Navy) and ended up at Ramasun from 6-73 to 7-74, and again from 6-75 to 4-76. I was an 05H until the end, and was working in the IATS section when the whole show closed down. Still miss that place.

Peace,

John

I WAS AT RAMASUN STATION FROM NOV 72 THRU JUL 74. WORKED IN THE HEADQUARTERS BUILDING IN THE S-1/ADJUTANT OFFICE AS A CLERK TYPIST. I LIVED OFF POST ALL THETIME AFTER MY FIRST MONTH THERE. IT WAS A GREAT PLACE.

MY SON TOOK ME BACK IN 2006 FOR A VISIT. STILL LOOKS THE SAME.

I TOOK 30 POUNDS OF CANDY AND 800 PENCILS TO GIVE TO THE KIDS AT A SCHOOL MY SON WOULD HAVE ATTENDED IF HE HAD GROWNED UP OVER THERE. HE GOT TO MEET HIS THAI FAMILY AND WE HAD A GREAT TIME.

HE ENJOYED THE TRIP TO THE SCHOOL SO MUCH WHEN WE GOT HOME HE STARTED A WEBSITE TO HELP THE SCHOOL IN THE VILLAGE HIS FAMILY LIVED IN. IN 2007 HE AND HIS WIFE RETURNED FOR A MONTH TO SEE THAILAND AND WORK AT THE SCHOOL.

THE PEOPLE ARE STILL SO FRIENDLY.

Yes he did BM. A while back his son posted he was coming to look for his family's ville and was looking for assistance. Got loads of help, eventually finding the ville, his family and making a connection.

I think this was the page where he posted a link that told his story in detail, but the links don't work any longer:

It was a great read, and many of us were much affected by it.

I realize this is a long shot, but at the last Memorial Day ceremony at St Mary's cemetery, I came across a grave marked: JOHN NADALINE, OCT 20, 1967. I've previously catalogued all the expats buried at St Mary's, but this one lay hidden behind some old candles and a flower vase. John's grave is in the old section of the cemetery, and he's buried next to ELMER LYNCH who died in 1976, supposedly as the result of being shot. I haven't had a chance to inquire within the church itself. Any chance there's a vet out there who's aware of John Nadaline?
