    I'm planning to make 3-week trip to Laos in March. I am hoping to retrace some of my Dad's old footsteps there. He was there in the early 1970's for the Secret War. One of the places I'd like to go to Long Tieng, but I'm looking for some help on the best way to get there. I'm also wondering if it is possible to see the old runway there. Thank you in advance!

    Last I heard, and it's been a while, is the Laos government closed access to it. Not sure why at this point. But that might have changed. Was he a Raven or did he work with the agency or in some other capacity?
