Photos The war in Laos & Cambodia.

Hmong soldiers, totaling over 30,000 men, fought the ground war, flew combat missions, directed air strikes, rescued downed American flyers, fought behind enemy lines, gathered intelligence on the movements of North Vietnamese troops and more. Members of the Royal Laotian Air Force are now memorialized at the Aviation Heritage Center of Wisconsin in Sheboygan Falls. Their bravery and dedication will not be forgotten.

simple reason , the lao lack the capable to operate jet and more complex plane like a1 . btw fun fact Vietnam airforce first plane kill was achive by a T28 defect from lao airforce , shoting down a cargo plane carry infiltrator from south Vietnam , another t28 pilot by a thai pilot some how land in northern Vietnam and the pilot manage to flee back to lao , which help our t28 operate for quite awhile by using part from the thai t28 plane

These photos appear to show Pathet Lao troops. The second picture amazes me: where/when was it taken? Who is the woman in Western dress? What is her nationality?
