The picture shows examples of an opened and closed sleeping blanket. TLCB has had many hundreds of these manufactured locally at Nakhon Phanom and distributed to more than 35/40 schools over the years. Perhaps even greater numbers than that.
School Desks and Chairs
An example of some of the many hundreds of school desks and chairs manufactured locally within Thailand and Laos paid for by the TLCB and Air Commando Association.
Mo Mae was dying in 2004. With the aid of assistance from Dr. John Middlewood and the TLCB funding her transportation costs and housing for one of her parents over the many required trips to hospitals in Udorn Mo Mae today is a healthy young woman following her successful heart surgery and follow up care. Mo Mae was our first medical heart patient.
Build New Bathrooms
The bathroom is an example of those accomplished within the NKP area. An off hand guess would be at least 20/30 of these over the years and perhaps more.
Our First Project
First TLCB Project (in 2008) at the legendary secret Air America Base at Long Tieng, in northern Laos. We installed a toilet facility for up to 4 people. Since then several other projects have been accomplished at Long Tieng.
Ban Nahom School
School at Ban Nahom in central Laos located off Route 9 almost at the border of Vietnam after painting and roof repair accomplished by the villagers with funding and oversight by TLCB. This is the location of loss of Jeff Hudgens father in 1969 while serving as a Skyraider pilot at NKP.
TLCB School at NKP
