Thai Forward Air Guides During the Second Indochina War.

Thai Forward Air Guides (FAGs) were CIA contract employees who coordinated battlefield operations in support of Thai and allied forces in the secret war in Laos. Their story has never been written in the English language. Paul Carter’s 21-year U.S. Army career and five war zone deployments provided him not only the background and experience to document this history, but gave the FAGs confidence that sharing their stories would result in a skilful study.

His brief Bio:

Thai Forward Air Guides (FAGs) were CIA contract employees who coordinated battlefield operations in support of Thai and allied forces in the secret war in Laos.  Their story has never been written in the English language. The author’s twenty-one-year U.S. Army career and five war zone deployments provided him not only the background and experience to document this history, but gave the FAGs confidence that sharing their stories would result in a skillful study.  FAGs’ primary duties were to coordinate U.S. aircraft activities, and liaison between the Thai military and CIA. In 1970, Thailand was embarking on its largest military expeditionary effort in modern times, sending large numbers of troops into Laos.  This was a joint fight with the CIA, but there was a problem. Large numbers of Thai forces required an effective means to control U.S. airstrikes, reconnaissance and medical evacuations.  In response, the CIA recruited over 100 Thai military-aged males, their only qualification being to speak English. They went to a U.S. military course of 10-14 days and were immediately deployed to the Laos battlefield.  It was an anomaly of warfare likely never to be replicated, where foreign civilians were given a modicum of military training and placed on a battlefield to coordinate U.S. airstrikes. Mr. Carter’s lecture will focus on who they were, their motivations, training, activities in Laos, efforts to gain post-war recognition and alumni activities today.
