Takhli RTAFB - Land of the King Cobra
Re: Det 3 6003rd Support Squadron / 4802 Joint Liaison Detachment
I was in that unit from Nov 71-Nov 72. That was a long time ago and to be honest I don't remember your uncle's name. Was he in the Air Force? Did you know his AFSC and rank? I was a SSGT at the time. I imagine you know that the unit was a bunch of NCO's helping to support the war in Laos. 4802 JLD was a name given to the CIA activity that controlled operations in both Laos and Thailand. The station chief was a man named Pat Landry. I worked in logistics and My boss was a CIA logistics person who ran stock control and the warehouses. His name was Charlie Dooley. I remember there were other Air Force personnel in Transportation, a Photo- ops guy, a Tsgt who maintained station equipment all over Thailand and Laos. There were no military officers in Udorn that we reported to. There was a Major in JUSTMAGTHAI in Bangkok that administratively controlled us. If you have any questions, please ask and I will answer if I can.
