My name is John Ellis, and the purpose of this site is to share some of the wonderful experiences
I had while living in the exotic country of Thailand. While on active duty in the United States Air Force, I was fortunate
enough to be assigned to three distinctly different areas of this beautiful country. In 1972 I was assigned to U-tapao Royal
Thai Navy Air Base, which is located on the Gulf of Siam in the South Central region. In 1973 I spent approximately seven
months in the North Eastern area of the country at Ubon Air Base, and in 1974 I lived at Korat Air Base in the Central Region.
During those three years I was extremely fortunate to be able to travel around the country, meet alot of people, make alot
of friends and take alot of pictures. By clicking on the links on the left side of this page, you can view many of the places
I visited, or if you wish you can click on my written memories and read about some of my adventures.
