Ubon RTAFB - U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War & Today

Ubon Mun (Moon) River 1967-72 & 2002

These photos of the Mun (Moon) River were taken during Ubon's "Candle Festival" on July 2002. The major changes were replacement of the old 2 lane bridge with a new 4 lane bridge about 10 years ago. The other change was to the river bank along the "Outdoor Market". erosion control concrete banks replaced dirt. I also took a boat out to Hat Wat Tai Island just about 1/2 km from the Outdoor Market. During the war, many GI's used the island for parties.
