About three dozen Sattahip-based sailors were dispatched to Thailand’s storm-ravaged southern coast to repair and build houses for victims of Tropical Storm Pabuk.
Sattahip Naval Base commander, Vice Adm. Choomsak Nakwijit, inspected troops from the Construction and Development Regiment at the General Staff Division headquarters Jan. 28.
Regiment commander Capt. Wirat Konthong said 35 navy engineers and construction experts will take vehicles, heavy machinery and electrical and communications equipment to the 10 southern provinces hit by last month’s storm.
Choomsak urged all the forces to be good representatives of the Royal Thai Navy and work diligently.
