    A classroom build in Thailand

    Don't know where in Chanthaburi this school is located, well done these men.
    Something for the benefit of the children of Wat Kun Song School
    Keep it positive!

    **********************


    A ceremonial prayer leader blesses the construction site of the Wat Kun Song School District, Chanthaburi province, Kingdom of Thailand, Jan. 31.


    Pitak Dangsakul prepares the first column for the pillar raising ceremony at Wat Kun Song School District, Chanthaburi province, Kingdom of Thailand, Jan. 31. Dangsakul is the assistant principal at the school.


    Members of the Royal Thai Marine Corps’ Engineer Battalion and their counterparts from the Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 3 stand-up the first column of a new schoolhouse during a pillar raising ceremony at the Wat Kun Song School District, Chanthaburi province, Kingdom of Thailand, Jan. 31.


    U.S. Army 1st Lt. Daniel Moore, left, discusses the construction project with Thai Royal Army Col. Pongpat Songsuntorn following a pillar raising ceremony at the Wat Kun Song School District, Chanthaburi province, Kingdom of Thailand, Jan. 31. The ceremony is part of Exercise Cobra Gold 2014, a Thai-U.S. co-sponsored exercise committed to regional partnership, prosperity and security in the Asia-Pacific region. Moore is the site officer in charge with Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 3. Songsuntorn is the commander of the Combined Joint Civil Military Operations Task Force.

    Once complete, the new building will house three rooms and four computers for the school and community to benefit from. The project also created new access roads and cleared a large field of vegetation that became a sports field for the kids.

    Moore and his Seabees have been working with the Royal Thai Marine Corps Engineer Battalion under the command of Chief Engineer, Lt. Panya, to complete the project. Panya has participated in Exercise Cobra Gold for the last 20 years and is familiar with improvising with other nations to get the job done.

    “I am very impressed with our team and how much we have been able to overcome any issues and improvise, said Panya. “Even with a language barrier, our team has been able to become very close and work well with each other.”

    Panya feels the entire community can benefit from Cobra Gold and it gives the Thai people a chance to both learn and share knowledge with other nations.

    Moore said he is thankful for the community’s support and feels his team will complete the project on time by Feb. 20.

    Well done, when I was working in Thailand back in 09 my company upgraded a local orphanage with new rooms/beds/pillows/sheets/doonas/drinking water fountains, etc, very satisfying.

    The Toy Rides up around CM are good.
    They are very selective about who they donate to and make sure that all the money is used for it`s intended purpose,like upgrading dormitory`s and general works around the orphanage.
    Kids love the big bikes and old farangs when they turn up.
    They don`t seem to know that they are underprivileged.
