Introduction
Nakhon Phanom Royal Thai Air Force Base (NKP RTAFB), Thailand was
located approximately 350 miles northeast of Bangkok. The installation was
operated continuously from the early 1960s to approximately 1976. From this
location, personnel supported several U.S. Agencies in conducting what
became known as "The Secret War". The dangerous missions, carried out in
Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam resulted in many aircraft and personnel being
lost. The installation, known simply as NKP, or Naked Fanny is gone. Today it
is the airport for the city of Nakhon, Phanom, Thailand.  This website will give
you a glimpse into the Secret War, and the world of Special Operations.

I am looking for anyone who may remember USAF Captain
John M. Davis, a Navigator with the 606th Candlesticks at NKP
in the 1960s. If you remember John, please contact
billygwebb@nkpcommandos.com. Thanks. A family member
has inquired.
