One last mission

Royal Thai Navy ship ‘Luang Good’ is sunk in the Gulf of Thailand yesterday to create an artificial reef. Formerly the ‘USS Exno’, the ship was decommissioned last year after 51 years of service that included transporting soldiers and weapons in the Korean War. In its final mission, the ‘Luang Good’ will provide a haven for various sea creatures and create a new marine tourist attraction off Pattaya’s coast. The project is part of the Royal Thai Navy’s celebrations of the 60th anniversary of His Majesty the King’s accession to the throne.
