Udorn (Thailand) Veterans Reunion
 
A reunion of veterans who served in Udorn, Thailand 1961-1975: July 23-26, 2009, at the Sheraton-Detroit-Novi in Novi, MI.

Udorn, Thailand became a major Air Force Base during the Vietnam War. It all started with a deployment of Marines from MAG-16 in 1961. We provided ground support and security for an Air America helicopter squadron that were flying missions for the Laotian Government.

Guest speaker is Col. Roger Holtzapple who was a Marine Infantry Platoon Commander whose platoon provided security for the 1961 Marine deployment to Udorn.

Probably some of the first Marine operational units deployed to Southeast Asia in that era.
