U.S. Forces Korea: The Big Move to Camp Humphreys
In 2017, U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) will complete the move of nearly all troops and support staff from Yongsan Garrison in Seoul to Camp Humphreys, 50 miles south of the capital city. This project has taken over a decade to complete, partially because it involved building and renovating infrastructure for the thousands of people that will be moving there.
Korean Kontext host Jenna Gibson sat down with Major General James Walton, Director for Transformation and Restationing, who has headed up this relocation project since 2014. They discuss the background of the move and its progress, as well as the future for the land in Yongsan that will be vacated by USFK.
