Ubon Air Force Base and Thailand Stock Footage

I was searching online for some info about the battles in the Chong Bok Mountains on the border of Ubon and came across some interesting stock footage from Ubon Ratchathani’s Air Force Base. A few of my favorite links are below but once at the site you can search for others. What’s shocking from the first video is just how many trees were in Ubon! Do you have any links to more stock footage?

There is also some interesting footage of HM the King in New York City and President Johnson visiting Bangkok which can be seen here. A couple more interesting videos from Thailand are below.

      Oliver, I was also @ Ubon during VN. I have read about the sapper attacks in
      69′ & 70′. As I was a security police augmentee @ Ubon , I’m sorry I missed
      the fight.
      I wasn’t aware that there were that many of you Army guys at Ubon. I did
      have an Army buddy at a transmission station across the river from Ubon who
      we mutually supported each other in some recovery work.
      Please let me hear from you, Gary Stimmel.
