U.S. Army Pacific lifts ban on Thailand travel
U.S. Army Pacific lifted a travel ban to Thailand this week, according to a command spokesman.
To allow Army officials to assess the safety situation following a peaceful revolt in Thailand on Sept. 19, Army leaders restricted leave to Thailand for soldiers under the command, which includes U.S. Army Japan.
Since the coup, there have been no reports of violence against tourists, according to media reports. The U.S. Embassy in Bangkok continues to recommend that travelers to Thailand register with the embassy and avoid political gatherings.
