Abstract:

This initial CHECO report on Civic Action in Thailand provides the first objective study of USAFs only professional Military Civic Action unit, the Civic Action Center of the 606th Special Operations Squadron. Civic Action, Thailand, 1964-1968 evaluates and differentiates between two kinds of Civic Action taking place in that area. The first type concerned operations of the 606th the second was the Civic Action and Community Development programs evolving around each of the seven Royal Thai Air Force Bases which housed USAF personnel and materiel. The concept of Civic Action, as it applied to Thailand, changed dramatically three times during this reporting period. The first change occurred with the advent of the 606th ACS in 1966 the second change pertained to full-time Civic Action officers and councils at each base the third change was an emphasis on base programs to the exclusion of 606th remote-area operations.
