Our Flight Surgeon, Col SO Satta, is gone

Dear KAFV,

I just received a very sad news; Professor So, Satta passed away today, Thursday, 27 February, 2014 at Lyon, FRANCE.
Khmer Air Force Veterans want to pay our sincere respects and thanks to Professor for all he has done for us and our country throughout his whole career and his lifetime. It is a big loss for all of us and our poor people in Cambodia.
We pray for his soul rest in eternal peace.
With our deepest sympathy,
Kalmine Ly
