Exercise Cobra Gold 2019
« on: January 22, 2019, 03:41:01 PM »

Starting very soon:

There is always an increase in views and searches of the forum immediately before and during the exercise.

To reduce spam the access levels to the forum have been increased, but I'd encourage any interested guests to register an account and ask the members here for advice and information regarding Korat, the area, what's on and where to go. Even the tricky questions you're not sure if you can ask - no guaranteed answers, but the members can probably give you pointers.

If you are in Korat and have R&R time, please remember to support the bars and businesses run by expats: your custom is both valued and appreciated.

On your pc you can turn the sound down but not when they fly over your house. The cracks in the walls of our house show sound is to heavy over suburban areas but hey it was my decision to live here so I cannot complain  :(

I was about to post that Korat wasn't mentioned.

I hope the info is correct.

Call into the US Marines press liaison to try to discover the truth. Hopefully we can get a definite answer!

Robert, I called the Marines press office and spoke to a Colonel there. Very friendly, but completely without any knowledge. He's heard of Cobra Gold but knew nothing about it or the schedule: he suggested I contact Pacific Command who 'may' know more. I decided it was better to avoid calling multiple departments of the US military as my interest might generate reciprocated interest in me, which is not a good thing. A Brit calling US military departments with questions is odd and however polite they are (and they were) I really don't want to become a 'person of interest' to the US military. Perhaps someone from the US, with a service history and inside knowledge, might be better calling!

So no news I'm afraid! Earplugs at the ready.....
