*Nous laisson le terme "Disparus" même si nous n'avons pas beaucoup d'illusions quant au sort des ces officiers tel que Ok Sam Ath qui laissa partir sa femme et son enfant. Lui même resta à Kampong Chnang car il était parmi ceux en charge de la défense de la base...

*We keep the word "Missing" but we do not delude oneselves about the fate of the missing officers like Ok Sam Ath. He made his wife and his children left while he stayed at Kampong Chnang as he was among the officers in charge of the defense of the airbase...
