I was able to go back to Takhli in the 80s and relive the glory days of the 474th Roadrunners 72-74. I had a Thai friend who sweet talked us into the base. Very little left you would recognize, maybe base ops, chapel, and a little of the old Thai BX. There was a sq of F-5s there then. Dont know now. The Takhli strip with all the dives is long gone, with sleepy businesses taking their place. A recent trip to NKP to relive my USSAG/7th AF tour 73-74 was a total bust. Nothing, nothing left. Udorn was better but a shell of its former self (a real powerhouse in the day). There are a number of retirees there but little going on beyond Sing Ha and retread war stories. Sad, but time marches on. Best to you all. Joe
