I am a result of the Vietnam War, actually—the "Secret War" in Laos--a bastard son of an American soldier stationed in Udon Thani during the decades-long Indochina conflict. When... More > American soldiers moved into Udon Air Force Base, the promise of great opportunities and riches excited many impoverished villagers around the rural Isaan farmlands; long overlooked by the Thai government. My mother, a young woman at the time, embraced this chance to make money, and even dreamed of being married off to a rich Tahaan Falaang who would take her away from the misery of subsistence living—a poor rural Isaan woman’s fantasy that evaporated the moment the Americans packed up and went home. With mounting pressure to survive in these rural lands, my mother did what many women in the same situation did—dropped me off at an orphanage. It was a journey that shredded my spirit and buried me deep in despair. I had no choice but to reach out into the unknown. Fate took me there. But a miracle brought me out…< Less

As if in some kind of karmic joke, newly assigned Peace Corps volunteer and Vietnam War opponent, Malcolm Jossogne, arrives in Udon, Thailand in 1970 to find this once quiet, upcountry town has been... More > transformed into a vulgar shantytown of massage parlors, strip joints, bowling alleys, and neon-lit nights by the presence of thousands of American soldiers. Streets that once carried bicycles are now choked with caravans of honking blue taxis only American soldiers can afford. Bars and brothels outnumber Buddhist temples. Where saffron-robed Theravada monks once padded in silent contemplation, Led Zeppelin and Three Dog Night now blast from the doorways of GI bars, and drunken Americans on all fours vomit into the gutters. Grotesque imitation of American fashion, customs, and vices induces a cultural schizophrenia. Nearer to Hanoi than Bangkok, Udon is strategic to the U.S. military as it prosecutes the war. But it’s also here that Malcolm is to meet a Thai girl, “the other half of his flesh.”< Less

In this Buddhist dominated country the first thought was not that a Roman Catholic entity hovered above Route 2009 near Nong Kung Si in the Kalasin Province.
