BANGKOK, 12th February 2019 (NNT) – On Monday, soldiers from eight countries, including Thailand and the United States, constructed a school building in the northern Thai province of Tak ahead of this week’s 2019 Cobra Gold light military drills.

 

The soldiers converged on Ban Koh Ai Duan School in the capital district of Tak to build a multi-purpose facility, as part of this year’s Cobra Gold exercise. Throughout 2019, the soldiers will erect six buildings in five provinces namely Phitsanulok, Tak, Nakhon Sawan, Chanthaburi and Rayong.

 

Involving 8,474 soldiers, the 38th iteration of Cobra Gold 2019 is taking place from February 12 to February 23, 2019. Cobra Gold is one of the largest theater security cooperation exercises in the Indo-Pacific and is an integral part of the US and Thailand’s commitment to strengthening engagement in the region.

 

Cobra Gold will improve the capabilities of participating nations to plan and conduct combined and joint operations, build relationships among participating nations across the region and improve interoperability over a range of activities including enhancing maritime security, preventing and mitigating emerging disease threats and responding to large-scale natural disasters.

According to an American officer I spoke to, (quite a few years ago mind you) one of the main points of "Ex Cobra Gold" is for the US Army technicians to service and attempt to repair much of the US supplied kit held by the Thai military...

I thought the Russian although not bricklaying, had been offering another 'laying' service in the form of sexual therapy in Pattaya.

They (The Superior Military of USA) leave all sorts of armaments behind for the Thai's during these so called visits.

 

Think a bunch of tanks are already on the gifted roster.

Yes, being a part of Cobra gold automatically provides work permit.  Cobra Gold maintains a consistent focus on Humanitarian Civic Assistance, community engagement, and medical activities conducted during the exercise to support the needs and humanitarian interests of civilian populations around the region. Exercise Cobra Gold is an annual exercise conducted in the Kingdom of Thailand with seven full participating nations.  Might want to check maybe your little country is also participating.  

Boy! did you miss the point - went over like a pregnant pole vaulter...
