6-52 cooks prep for big test


By Capt. Jeremy Tennent 6th Battalion, 52nd ADA

Army to determine Best Field Kitchen in next competition

Pulling together to support the battalion promotes enthusiasm and camaraderie among the young Soldiers. This is going to take us about a day and a half to dig this bunker, said Poaha, but he added that supporting the effort to win the contest was exciting. Sergeant John Gifford, who oversaw the prepa-

rations for the inspection, said, We have received a lot of support from across the Brigade, helping us to get ready. Private First Class Erica Asbury was nervous about their upcoming inspection, but said, We have done well no matter what, but it would be great to win. The inspection will be held in early November. x

SUWON AIR BASE The 6th Battalion, 52nd Air Defense Artillery is rightfully proud of its dining facility. Over the past year, the chefs and food service NCOs have labored to put their best foot forward in the Philip A. Connelly competition, a Department of the Army contest designed to promote excellence in food service. Their hard work has resulted in the Iron Horse Battalion being nominated to represent Eighth Army in the Field Kitchen category. Next week, the Department of the Army will send inspectors out to observe the DFAC personnel at work, serving their fellow Soldiers with hot food in the field, sustaining the fighting force. The stakes are high, and the Soldiers are responding to the tension by pulling together to build the best possible field kitchen on Suwon Air Base. In preparation for the inspection, the battalion has built a field kitchen environment, complete with gravel walkways, sandbagged and secured dining tents, and bunkers able to provide 360-degree security. Digging in Koreas hard red clay and sweating in the crisp autumn air, Soldiers from across the Battalion, worked to support their fellow Iron Horse soldiers. Private Justin Poaha, 21, of Palolo, Hawaii, took charge of a detail tasked with digging out a .50 caliber machine gun emplacement. It is good PT, he said, outlining the plan to build five-foot deep bunkers with roofs and secure firing points. Working with him were Pvt. Kevin Brooks, 20, of Memphis, Tenn.; Pvt. Brian Dilley, 22, of Milwaukee; Pfc. Daniel Kellogg, 22, of Monmouth, Ill.; and Pvt. Charles Johnson, 23, of Atlanta.

Army leaders renew Family Covenant


By Evan Dyson IMCOM
WASHINGTON, D.C. Top Army leadership renewed the Army Family Covenant, the Armys formal commitment to support Soldiers and their Families, with a signing at the Association of the United States Army annual conference. Secretary of the Army John McHugh, Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. Raymond Odierno and Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond Chandler III conducted the signing Oct. 10. Accompanying them on stage was Sgt. Jeremy Barnhart and his Family, who were recognized as the 2011 AUSA Volunteer Family of the Year. We talk a lot about the Army Family, said McHugh. We hear it on radio and on television. We read about it in virtually any Army publication and it is important that we talk about it. Its important that we remind ourselves, but it cant just be a bumper sticker. We must not forget, McHugh added, that with all these great Soldiers, men and women in uniform, forward deployed wherever that deployment may take them, more than 80 countries across this planet that back home there are folks like yourselves who are struggling as well and holding that Family together. While acknowledging the hardships that the Army has endured during the past ten years of conflict, Odierno said Family programs must ensure that our Families remain strong. The reason were able to have an all-volunteer force is because of the support we get from Families, he said. These are people who raised their right hand to say I want to serve and that decision does not come alone. The Army Family Covenant was originally unveiled on Oct. 8, 2007 to represent the Armys

NEWS Tour a hit with Soldiers, Families


By Peter Yu USAG Humphreys Public Affairs
CAMP HUMPHREYS Thirty Soldiers, Family members and civilians attended the Baekje Cultural Festival, and its Cultural Tour, Oct. 6-8. Baekje was an ancient Korean nation which ruled Hwanghae-do, Gyeonggido (including Seoul), Chungcheongdo, and Cholla-do about 1,400 years ago On the first day, participants started exploring Baekje Village at Gongju, where the opening ceremony was held. It is surrounded by Gongsan Fortress. Byeon, Pyeong-seob, the director of the Chungnam History and Culture Center said, We welcome USFK Soldiers, civilians and their Family members to this Baekje Cultural Festival and want to take this opportunity to enhance Korea-America friendship through better understanding of Baekje culture. After the opening ceremony, Camp Humphreys participants enjoyed some cultural experience activities such as wearing Baekje clothing, tasting Korean tea and rice cake, looking around Baekje blacksmith place and a mud house. After lunch, the group visited King Muryeongs Tomb, the 25th King of Baekje, its Museum. There were many ancient tombs of Baekje but most of them were robbed during the Japanese colonial era. Fortunately, the King Muryeongs Tomb had been well kept and it was found in 1971. It revealed over 2,906 pieces of 108 types of relics. Among the various relics uncovered, most were proclaimed as national treasures. On the way to Buyeo, the group visited a chestnut orchard and filled up a little screen basket. Then at the Lotte Buyeo Resort Hotel, the group enjoyed electric string performance and a break dance during dinner. On the second day, the group made a tour to Baekje Cultural Land (Restored Complex), which is right across the street from the hotel. The Baekje Cultural Land includes Sabigung (Sabi Palace), Baekje Historical Museum, Wiryseong (the first capital of Baekje), Ancient Tomb Park, Jehyangnu (observatory and resting place), and Neungsa (Kings Buddhist Temple), and an ancient village. In this worldclass historical theme park, the group found the spirit and the essence of the brilliant culture of Baekje. In the afternoon, the group rode a Hwangpo-dotdae boat on the Baekma river to Goran-sa Temple and Nakhwaam, where 3,000 of Kings maids of honor jumped into the water here to avoid Dangs outrage. These are located in the middle of the Buso Mountain and top of the cliff alongside the river. Group members also had a chance to make pottery. The tour came to an end at Jeongrimsa Temple and its exhibition hall. The temple has a five-storied stone pagoda, which is one of the oldest existing stone pagodas in Korea and it is representative of the concept of beauty in Baekje. John Clements, Information Assurance manager from the 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade said, I enjoyed the tour. It was really good. We got to see some historical sightseeing and things and I enjoy this kind of things anyway so its a lot of fun. The museum visit was the best and we like to come back next year, he added. This program was sponsored by Chungnam Province and organized by Chungnam History and Cultural Center. In particular, they offered two nights and three days special tour this year. Johnathan Kelly, a personnel processing specialist, said It was good and we learned a lot. I am glad that we got to come. The most impressed thing was that the amount of history and how old a lot of things arevery historical. I think this will be a good tour for family as well as Soldiers, Baekjes first capital was Hansung (old name of Seoul), and the second one was Gongju (Woongjin Fortress), and the last one was Buyeo (Sabi Fortress). It was demolished by combined forces of Shilla (one of three ancient Korean nations, along with Goguryo and Baekje), which ruled Gangwon-do and Gyeongsang-do and Dang (an an-

cient Chinese nation). Since then, its tragic history has been embedded into backside of Korean history. Baekjes royal family and political leaders had escaped from Korean peninsula to Wae (old name of Japan in Korean) with many artists, craftsmen, musicians, so its culture was continued in Japan. Joon Auci, with Child and Youth Service, said, Thank you very much for providing me with an opportunity. I was unaware of the accomplishment of the Baekje dynasty and its implication of influencing the culture of Japan. During this trip I felt a genuine kindness from the cultural ministry staff. Most people said they would like to come back if there is another trip next year. Their feedback about the tour including hotel and food was very positive. Lee Hoon, chief of History Cultural Laboratory said, I hope you enjoyed the tour and expect more Soldiers can come next year even it falls on the week day.

SIGHTS AND SOUNDS: Offpost events and activities


Mount Seorak One of the most famous mountains is Mt. Seorak is a site most Koreans visit at least once in their lifetime. Seoraksan National Park in Gangwon-do (Gangwon Province) is located at the far northern end of the mountain and is known for its breathtaking valleys and waterfalls. Each spring, the park holds its annual flower festival, filling the air with sweet fragrances. The elevation is 5,603 feet. Heyri Art Valley Heyri Art Valley is a collection of art galleries, workshops, film studios, book shops and cafs, hidden away in an idyllic valley just an hours drive north of Seoul. Along with nearby Paju Book City, Heyri is a grand experiment in ecologically friendly architecture, design and urban planning, made all the more surreal by its location just a rivers width from North Korea. There is an outdoor museum (with plenty of indoor ones, too) that even laymen without the slightest interest in the arts can enjoy. Its a place one might be able to spend all day strolling about, dipping in and out of galleries and bookshops as the mood strikes. About 370 artistsincluding painters, sculptors, graphic artists, filmmakers and potterslive and/or work in Heyri. Koreas top architects were let loose to design the studio and art spaces, and the resultan outdoor display of the very best of eco-friendly Korean designis absolutely breathtaking. Each and every building is an expression of the individuality of both architect and owner, yet all strictly conform to the villages overriding principle of harmony with nature. They are designed to harmonize with and complement the hills and streams. Cheongwadae Sarangchae As one of Seouls newest tourist attractions Koreas presidential residence, the Cheongwadae Sarangchae, is located in front of Cheongwadae. It is a presidential museum that informs visitors about Koreas past, present and future. Opened on January 5, 2010, the two-story exhibition and museum was designed to be more environmentally friendly than other museums by harnessing the power of solar and geothermal energy, thereby reducing the use of fossil fuels. Its a fitting response to Koreas ambitious goal to reduce carbon emissions by 30 percent by the year 2020. The Cheongwadae Sarangchae can be accessed via Gyeongbokgung Station on Seoul Metro Line 3 (Exit 5). Reverse direction and turn right at the intersection. Walk along the western palace wall until you reach the large statue in front of the presidential residence. The museum will be on your left. Hours: Open 09:00-18:00. Closed Mondays. The Ilmin Museum of Art The Ilmin Museum of Art houses one of Seouls finest venues reserved for the cultivation and presentation of modern art. Only relatively recently, since its reopening in 2002, has the museum slowly shifted its main interest to contemporary Korean art instead of focusing only on existing collections. Inviting both renowned artists like Suh Yong-sun, who held a solo exhibition here in 2004 and was named Artist of the Year for 2009, and young artists who have not quite made names for themselves yet, the museum contributes to making the contemporary Korean art scene more accessible to the public and even gives not-so-conventional, experimental artists a chance to present their work, too. The museum is open daily, except on Mondays, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The caf and shop are open daily, except for national holidays, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Entry fees vary according to the exhibitions. For more information, visit www.ilmin.org. Gwanghwamun Station, Line 5, Exit 5 is the most direct way to get there. From City Hall Station, Lines 1 & 2, take Exit 4 and walk for about 500 meters. Parking space is available in the Dong-A Media Center next door.

A chance to Make a Difference


By Col. Joseph P. Moore Humphreys Garrison Commander
HUMPHREYS GARRISON On Saturday, Soldiers, Family members, and civilian employees will be pitching in to clean Deokdongsan Neighborhood Park in Pyeongtaek. This is part of Make a Difference Day, held annually on the fourth Saturday of October. As the weather changes, we likewise can see the changes made when people commit their time and effort to a cause. We have an opportunity to give back to our gracious hosts who do so much to make our time here enjoyable. Signup begins at 9 a.m. at the walk-through gate and buses depart at 9:30 a.m. I encourage you to consider making this part of your day, or if unable, to look at other volunteer activities throughout the year, through entities such as Army Community Service and Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers. Volunteering benefits not only the person or organization receiving the service, but also the person providing it. Volunteers leave with the good feeling that comes from making a positive impact and also take with them a sense of accomplishment, worthiness, and satisfaction.

Col. Joseph P. Moore


Make a Difference Day got its start through USA Weekend Magazine and has blossomed into the countrys largest day of volunteering. HandsOn Network and Newmans Own are also to be commended for contributing to the worthy cause, but nothing would get done without the volunteers. Please consider becoming one Saturday and Making a Difference. x

Prestigious Phillip A. Connelly awards recognize food service excellence


By Franklin Fisher franklin.s.fisher@us.army.mil
CAMP RED CLOUD Major league baseball has the World Series, soccer the World Cup, football the Super Bowl. And in the world of U.S. Army chow halls dining facilities is the official term theres the annual Phillip A. Connelly awards competition. And at Camp Casey, the people at the Casey Main dining facility are now hoping to win top Army honors as the best dining facility worldwide in the civilian category. That means a dining facility run and staffed by civilians rather than Soldiers. Casey Main already won at the Korea-wide level last year and again this year. Theyre now in the running for this years Department of Army-level Connelly in their category, worldwide. Its like the top Army award for food service, said Sabrina Wilson, Casey Mains manager. Its just so prestigious. The Connelly awards program recognizes excellence in the preparation and serving of food in Army dining facilities and aims to foster professionalism among Army food service personnel. The program operates out of Fort Lee, Va. When someone says, Hey, he won the Connelly, you automatically think high standards, she said. This dining facility, theyre doing all of the right things. Because of recent changes in how the Army classifies dining facilities, Casey Main now falls within the civilian category. To gauge where Casey Main stacks up against others in the running, a three-member team of evaluators came Oct. 14. A senior Army civilian, a chief warrant officer and a sergeant major made up the team. Casey main is staffed by 34 Korean civilians. Wilson is the only American. About 350 to 450 Soldiers show up for each of three meals daily, she said. A Connelly evaluation is known for its thoroughness, with evaluators working from a lengthy checklist and eyeing the smallest details. They kept the place under a microscope. They start at the crack of dawn, said Wilson. When we hit the doors at five-thirty in the morning, theyre here with us. From the time we turn on the stove to the time the breakfast hits the line, theyre with us. They looked at key aspects of food service operation sanitary practices, teamwork, management skills, meal preparation, customer satisfaction, among others. Theyre big on sanitation, said Wilson, how we keep our areas clean. As we prepare our food, are we washing our hands? Are we picking up after ourselves? One of the main things is to make sure that were following the recipe card that the Army has set aside for all the dining facilities to follow, said Wilson. Making sure youre not starting too early, making sure that youre cutting cuts the way theyre supposed to be cut. If a carrots supposed to be sliced, make sure youre not dicing them, Wilson said. The evaluators also talk to Soldier customers, Wilson said. They have a whole packet that they provide to you with everything that theyre looking for, she said. So you just go down the checklist and if you can do everything on the checklist, said Wilson, then hopefully thatll be enough to make you a winner. Connelly winners are to be announced in early December, Wilson said. x

Facebook Fan Being able to play and fight with all of my cousins and neighbors! I love being raised in the South!

I visited the Cagsawa ruin in the town of Daraga, which is about five miles from Legazpi on the island of Luzon in the Philippines Sept. 6. All that remains of the Franciscan church, which was built in 1724, is the belfry and some part of the convent. The Feb. 1, 1814 eruption of the Mayon Volcano (behind it) buried the town of Cagsawa under volcanic ash and also reportedly claimed the lives of 1,200 people, including hundreds who took refuge in the church.

Mascot creates fire station spark


By Pfc. Chang Han-him 2nd Infantry Division Public Affairs
CAMP RED CLOUD Plenty of people at Camp Red Cloud have seen her over time, a fixture at the firehouse, a black-and-white Dalmatian with that classic firehouse look. Her name is Sparky and as mascot at the Camp Red Cloud Fire Station shes a key part of the firehouse family, and a delight to kids at fire prevention events. Sparky arrived in September 2004 as a twomonth-old. We consider her a family member here, said Oh Dong-hwan, a firefighter with the U.S. Army Garrison Red Cloud. Hes also Sparkys trainer. John Cook, the USAG Red Clouds fire chief, says shes one of the smartest dogs hes known. It only took around six months for her to catch up with the basic tricks, said Cook. She now even recognizes that I am the chief of this place. She even gets into our formation every morning and stays still until I put out all the information She knows to wait in formation with the firefighters until its time to fall out. And she responds to such basic orders as sit, roll or get into the fire truck. She stays in shape by running on a treadmill. And when the siren sounds, she goes stock-still, head skyward, and howls, presumably to alert the public a fire trucks coming. Shes a real help in fire safety training, especially with kids. All the movement drills she performs are key to escaping a fire, Cook said. Sparky entertains them and catches their attention to pass out the critical fire safety messages. Oh spends hours teaching her tricks and demonstration techniques. Our goal is to collaborate with [Sparky] as much as we can to educate the people on fire prevention and safety messages, said Oh. However, we will also keep an eye on her, since what we consider the most is her health and happiness. x

Yongsan Fire Department demonstrates the Jaws of Life


By Pfc. Han Samuel samuel.han2@korea.army.mil
YONGSAN GARRISON - The U.S. Army Garrison Yongsan Fire Department demonstrated a vehicle extrication at the Walker Center parking lot Oct. 11, as part of Fire Prevention Week taking place on the garrison and all over the U.S. Fire Prevention Week, which is the longest public safety observance in the U.S., began as a result of the Great Chicago Fire, which took place on Oct. 10, 1871, killing and leaving many homeless after a destructive blaze ripped through Chicago. In response to this disaster, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation for the observance of Fire Prevention Week in 1920. Since then, Fire Prevention Week has been observed every year on the week that starts with Oct. 10. Deputy Fire Chief Brad Bowling explained that during Fire Prevention Week, the Fire Department interacts with the community and provides educational material informing the community about fire safety. One big event that the Fire Department does most every year is the vehicle extrication demonstration. For the demonstration, a device called the Jaws of Life was used to free a victim by cutting the vehicle apart to make enough room to safely free the trapped victim. Although the scenario was simulated, the Fire Department acted out the demonstration as if it were real and followed all necessary procedures in a professional manner. The vehicle was a donated car that was no longer usable, and acting as the victim was a member of the Fire Department. Also on scene were two Military Police who acted out the simulation and called for assistance from the Fire Department upon discovering the victim and the smoking vehicle. Bowling pointed out that although the demonstration was open to the entire community, typically, children are the main audience. Its open for everybody, but I think well be mainly seeing children from the school today. Whats important though, is that Fire Prevention Week is not just for children and families, but also for the Soldiers and everybody, Bowling said. This is because fire safety needs to be everybodys top priority. In addition to the vehicle extrication demonstration, the Fire Department hosted a community barbecue, tours of the Fire Department, an open house, and smoke detector checks from Sept. 15 through Oct. 15. See VEHICLE EXTRICATION, Page 12

YONGSAN GARRISON - Fire safety, as Yongsan Deputy Fire Chief Brad Bowling said, should be a year-round priority for every Family. However, for one week in October, fire safety comes to the fore as the U.S. Army Garrison Yongsan Fire Department holds Fire Prevention Week. Yongsan Fire Fighters welcomed the community to their fire station with an open house Oct. 12, to teach Soldiers, civilians and children from Seoul American Elementary School the importance of fire safety. This years open house included demonstrations from the Seoul Fire Department, who brought a burning building simulator and fire extinguisher trainers for the students of SAES. Students were given a chance to navigate through the burning structure to the fire escape, where an emergency slide led them to safety. On the other end, students handled training extinguishers used by the Seoul Fire Department for their own firemen. This works out perfect for us, be-

cause we just learned the lessons yesterday, said SAES 4th Grade Teacher Kim Gold. So now we get to put it into practice. Its all extra practice, which is never a harmful thing. On the other side of the fire station, the USO served up a barbecue feast for everyone. AFN set up a table across from the barbecue area to produce a live broadcast, and a bouncy castle was set up for children, with fire safety reminders written on the inside walls. This is the one time of year we bring fire safety to the forefront, say hey, here it is. We show it, teach it, and make it fun, Bowling said. We try to put the word out that its not just this week, that its a year-round thing. The event was the result of months of coordination between the Seoul Fire Department, the Yongsan Fire Department and the USO, working off the comments and requests from previous years events. Yongsan Fire Chief Alex Temporado said that all of the agencies make sure to mark their calendars for the event every year. For the community, Temporado believes that Fire Prevention Week gives the community a broader respect for the fire department. You have professionals here in the Yongsan community that are willing and ready to put their lives on the line for the lives of the community, Temporado said. x

YONGSAN GARRISON - In honor of Fire Prevention Week, Seoul American Elementary School kids visited Yongsan Fire Department Oct. 14. All the classes toured the fire station and listened to lessons about how the department operates in normal times and in emergencies. They then received proper fire prevention education by fire fighters. They first watched a fire safety video and learned how to evacuate from different scenes or accidents and protect themselves from the fire. After the safety class, students were given a chance to look around the fire station and at a variety of equipment and fire engines which have different roles and purposes to run. The highlight of the event was all participants had

to practice evacuating from the building filled with smoke where they could barely see in front of them and had to rely on dim lights and sounds. Sparky the fire dog welcomed each student after accomplishing the safety training and the visitors took a group photo with him after the lesson. x

I LOVE Myeongdong - just as the sign in that area says. Im a size 10 but find that there are so many fashionable clothes that fit me. I also love Dongdaemun. There are areas for larger women that boast some very stylish shirts, jackets, and dresses. Oh, and if you go over to Time Square mall there is a huge underground area with fashionable clothes for $5 and up. There are a lot of larger shirts that you are supposed to wear with tights which is the fashion area. Im not small and Ive never had an issue finding shirts and skirts here. Pants are more difficult. Happy shopping.

been a good team member in his job as a data analyst, but with his previous experience in other systems, he was able to help others with his knowledge and skills. When Bryan came to Korea the facilities both on and off post served as a challenge as few of them were equipped to handle the disabled. For the 65th support office, the team pulled together and made their own renovations, fixing the parking lot and the ramp to give Bryan more access. Though the main facilities on post, including the PX, Commissary and Dragon Hill Lodge, have full handicap access, office buildings, including the 65th Medical Brigade office where Bryan works may not be up to code. For the disabled to have access to buildings or getting around the community, it might be a bit difficult because it doesnt conform to the Disability Act for access to those people. Since we have older buildings without automatic doors or elevators, it can be quite difficult compared to stateside. Even with the challenges that it brings, Bryan continues to provide resource and data management for the 65th Medical Brigade. His one goal, though, is to make sure that others know that he isnt alone. I would like to see this program give a little insight to the community, Bryan said. Mostly on how they can help disabled veterans and employees have better access to buildings or other areas they may not be able to access. As for his manager, Chase, theres no regret when he talks about hiring Bryan. Mr. Bryan has come a long way, and he loves to work by himself, said Chase. He doesnt rely on people for his day to day life.x

Overcoming challenges of cerebral palsy


By Staff Sgt. Cody Harding cody.harding@korea.army.mil
YONGSAN GARRISON - Thomas Bryan was born with a form of cerebral palsy, a non-progressive (does not get better or worse) condition in the nervous system that limits movement and makes some tasks impossible. For Bryan, it means that he must use a wheelchair to move around. Even with his disability, Bryan has served six years as a Government Service employee in Yongsan. When Tyler Chase, his manager, decided to hire for a resource management specialist in the 65th Medical Brigade headquarters, the fact that Bryan had CP never became a factor. Now, in the weeks leading up to the National Disability Awareness Month observation at the Yongsan Movie Theater on Oct. 27, Chase wanted to bring attention to the hard work and dedication of his employee. Though they are unable to take part in the 8th Army Equal Opportunity Live a Day in My Shoes program due to mission, Chase said that they will both be present at the observation. Getting hired by USFK and working with the 65th Medical Brigade has let Bryan meet new and helpful people, many of whom work in his office. The people I work with here are appreciative, very helpful, and offer as much assistance as I need, to make my life easier here, Bryan said. Chase, the senior management analyst for the 65th Medical Brigade, and a GS employee for 20 years, said that hiring Bryan was a smart move. He met Bryan at a conference, and when he needed a new employee, he remembered him first. Since I know him personally, we had a good start, Chase said. Hes

OSAN AIR BASE Soldiers from Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, 35th Air Defense Artillery, strengthened their alliance with Airmen from the 51st Fighter Wing during a combined decontamination sustainment training exercise. The day started with the Soldiers and Airmen working together on chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear decontamination, by removing contamination from patients without further contaminating or injuring the patient, and without placing the medical personnel in harm. The purpose of the training was to allow the two units to compare each others strategies for CBRN decontamination and to teach the students how to use decontamination, medical facility, and fire department assets in the event of a chemical attack, said Sr. Airman Meagan Modinoff. The training was very good because we realized the differences between practice and real world exercises, said 35th ADA medic Spc. Joshua Drisko. This was a great opportunity to get a taste of what really happens in combat, and then it helped us prepare for future events that happen between the services. Headquarters and Headquarters Battery Soldiers started the day setting up a patient decontamination tent and Airmen then showed their method of decontamination. Our goal was to show the Soldiers and Airmen how they could decontaminate a patient and their equipment in record time, said Brent Frenton, a decontamination instructor. The group of Soldiers and Airmen were one of the fastest groups I have ever instructed. They worked hard to set up the tents, and cutting down the amount of time they decontaminate patients by following the procedures taught throughout the course. x

8th Army G4 hosts Tiger Team


By Capt. Sun Ryu 8th Army G4
YONGSAN The 8th Army G4 hosted the United States Army Pacific Command G4 Sustainment Tiger Team to assist units in providing technical assistance in property accountability operations. The team sat down with the Property Book Officers (PBOs) and reviewed the property books. They emphasized the importance of all parties to be responsible to uphold command supply discipline in the formation including proper cyclic, sensitive, sets, kits, and outfits, inventories and updating non-expendable shortage annexes. Units in Korea must deal with factors such as one year assignments and managing Korean Augmentation to the United States Army (KATUSA) equipment. With the yearly turnovers of personnel, it is critical that PBOs focus and manage continuity books and practices. As the Tiger Team reviewed the property book they found that Korea had its share of excess equipment, and other issues. The 8th Army has emphasized the use of tools and techniques to identify errors and correct them. Knowing this was an assistance visit and not an inspection, USARPACs Tiger Team was able to share best practices and units valued their experience. In addition, 8th Army G4 Supply and Services shop facilitates a G4/S4 and PBO monthly synchronization meeting through Defense Connect Online, as a forum for 8th Army logisticians to receive current guidance and enable a dialogue to share issues and best practices. A key focus across 8th Army is managing excess equipment, so G4/S4 and PBOs have been notified to cross-level equipment within the organization. If the equipment is found to be excess then units will receive lateral transfer directives or turn in dispositions. Not only is property accountability a responsibility for logisticians, it is a duty for all Soldiers to maintain. x

Soldiers, civilians show skills in speech contest

YONGSAN U.S. Soldiers and Korean students displayed their Korean and English abilities at the 13th annual Korean English Speaking Contest at Yongsans Movie Theater Oct. 5. Specials guests included the chief of staff and command sergeant major of the Eighth Army, and the director general of the National Institute of the Korean Language. The competition aims to strengthen the bond between South Korea and the United States, and to broaden the understanding of Korean culture and traditions to U.S. Soldiers. Starting in 2005, Korean civilians who learned their English from U.S. Soldiers stationed in Korea and KATUSAs are participating in the competition as well. Kang, Hee-chan, a students at Dunpo Middle School, who represented 602nd Aviation Support Battalion, and Jang, Dah-yeh, a student at Chung Damn Middle School, who represented Area III ROKA Support Group, were the Korean civilian winners. I wanted to check my English ability and fluency through this content, Kang said. I could also compete with many other students from other regions, and it could be a great memory for me. Furthermore, I applied for the contest in order to be more confident and improve my leadership by giving a presentation before many people. From the U.S. side, Spc. Michael Phares from 719th Military Intelligence Battalion was among the winners. x

Yongsan celebrates at the Fall Festival

By Pfc. Han Samuel samuel.han2@korea.army.mil


YONGSAN GARRISON - Community members lined the sidewalks of Williams Avenue on U.S. Army Garrison Yongsan to view the opening parade for the 2011 Fall Festival, Oct. 8. The day began with an extravagant show as the various groups were led by the United Nations Command Color Guard, the Yumkwang Womens High School marching band, and convertibles carrying the Deputy to the USAG Yongsan Commander Henry Stuart, this years volunteer of the year Ella Catineau, and the Seoul American High School Homecoming Queen and King. Other groups that marched in the parade included several boy and girl scout troops, organizations such as Better Opportunities for Single Servicemembers, a traditional Korean dancing crew and motorcycle clubs to name a few. Several of the groups interacted freely with the observers, handing out candy and treats. The Area II Republic of Korea Support Group who dressed as traditional and historical Korean roles, such as emperors and generals, vigorously waved their weapons, danced, and took pictures with the community as they marched in the parade and acted in character. Towards the end of the parade, the groups performed before judges to compete for the six prizes given to groups recognized as the best marching, the best vehicle, the most children, the best military theme, the best musical and the best non-ID card holders entries, who were each awarded R & R Bar and Grill gift certificates valued at $200 each. These certificates could be used directly at the Fall Festival where the R & R Bar and Grill opened up booths and catered hot dogs, barbecued ribs and hamburgers to the community. Following the parade, 2011 Fall Festival entertainment continued next to Collier Community Fitness Center. Child Youth and School Services School of Knowledge, Inspiration, Exploration and Skills teams, the 2nd Infantry Division Band, the Football Club Art performance using soccer balls, the Zumba Class, Mannam with Korean traditional instruments, and groups performing beat box and b-boy dances all took to the stage to wow and entertain the crowds. Many of the shows encouraged audience participation such as the Zumba Class performance where the audience joined in on the Zumba. The Football Club Art performance, beat box and b-boy groups also invited the community on stage to interact with members of the team and to learn the basics on how to dance and beat box. Another highlight of the day was a community pet show where proud owners entered their dogs, cats and rodents in a competition divided into categories based on size including a category for stuffed animals. Awards were given to all participants judged on a wide array of criteria including most obedient, best looking, and even one for the ugliest dog. A scavenger hunt was also held at the 2011 Fall Festival allowing lucky community members to win prizes based on drawings. The greatly coveted grand prize, which was a roundtrip airline ticket to the U.S., was awarded to Mi Young Carpenter. Bad Moon Band concluded the days entertainment with a spectacular performance. x

Lewis said. We get to interact with the Soldiers and customers, and there is a chance that this program will go all over Korea. The ingredients for each dish are also bagged for sale right by the display, said Kim, Ae-ran, assistant commissary officer. There is a$2 discount if Soldiers purchase all the ingredients together this way. Robert Frace, Family and Morale Welfare Recreation Center manager for Suwon Air Base, said, This gives Soldiers the opportunity to buy quick, easy and convenient meals that they can prepare in the barracks, while saving some money. One Iron Horse Soldier, Spc. Hase Cola, stopped by the booth, to say This is a great program and I am glad to come out and support it.

Humphreys families tour Gyeonggi


By Edward N. Johnson ed.johnson@korea.army.mil
GYEONGGI PROVINCE More than 40 Camp Humphreys community members participated in a cultural exchange organized by the Korean American Youth Alliance (KAYA) and sponsored by the Gyeonggi Province on Oct. 15. Patrick Hong, KAYA director and the events guide, said his organization was developed to promote friendship and cultural exchanges between foreigners and Koreans. This is an important event that brings together Koreans and Americans so they can better understand each others culture a make lasting friendships, he said. Participants visited a Korean apple orchard, where they learned about the harvest and picked the fruit. Next came a tour of a kimchi production facility, where they learned how to cook traditional Korean dishes such as Korean pancakes, bulgoggi, and spicy cabbage kimchi. The homemade kimchi was then vacuum-packed and given to the Americans to take home. Following the cooking class, attendees enjoyed a large lunch consisting of the many Korean recipes they had learned to cook earlier in the day. Min, Kyung-kim, a staff member and interpreter with KAYA for the past year, likes the event because it offers a family-friendly way for Americans to meet Koreans and experience their food, culture and way of life. This is a great program. Korean and American families learn together and thats the best part of the day, Kim said. After lunch, the trip continued by bus to a traditional Korean clothing shop. There, participants were encouraged to take part in a traditional onion and tea ceremony. The Americans were also given an opportunity to dye pieces of handmade material using all-natural Korean dying techniques. The trip concluded with a tour of Hyundais local industrial complex, where everyone was given the opportunity to ride in Asias largest high speed elevator testing tower. All expenses for the days activities, including transportation, tour guides, and meals were paid for by Gyeonggi Province. Sgt. 1st Class John Bullock, assigned to the 719th Military Intelligence Battalion on Camp Humphreys, said this was the first time he has taken advantage of trips sponsored by the Korean government. This trip was awesome, Bullock said. I would recommend it to everyone. x

Organized by the Korean American Youth Alliance and sponsored by Gyeonggi Province, the day-long event offered over 40 Camp Humphreys Soldiers, civilians and Family members a free opportunity to experience Korean food and culture. The days activities included apple picking at a local orchard, an introduction to traditional Korean tea tasting, an excursion to a Hyundai industrial complex to ride in Asias largest high speed elevator testing tower, and participation in a variety of Korean cooking classes (top).

OSAN AIR BASE Even with their high-tech radars and Patriot missiles capabilities used to counter an enemy attack, the 35th Air Defense Artillery Brigade knows how to get back to basics. On Oct. 8, the brigade leadership executed a Rehearsal of Concept (ROC) Drill for their upcoming Field Training Exercise (FTX) at the Suwon Air Base Gymnasium. Colonel Eric L. Sanchez began the drill by thanking the Brigade S3 shop for putting together the sand table brigade leaders would use to brief him on their understanding of the operation. We all know it was the NCOs and Soldiers who spent all the time putting this together for us, Sanchez said, referring to the layout in the gymnasium. The concept known as a ROC drill is nothing new to the Army, said Maj. Jason Townsend, 35th ADA operations officer. Our key task was to follow the commanders intent and execute the drill to ensure our subordinate commanders, two levels down, understand and can articulate their mission back to the brigade leadership. Soldiers assigned to the brigade S3 section, spent much of the day before the event setting up the gym, using camouflage netting to illustrate the rugged terrain the units would encounter during the exercise. Once the terrain was in place, Soldiers used numerous other materials to show the road networks, key terrain, and each wartime location. Each battery and company commander and first briefed the brigade commander and command sergeant major on their scheme of maneuver and concept of support for the FTX. They moved throughout the sand table, explaining their mission and how they will mitigate different situations they may encounter. The exercise was a great opportunity for leaders to work together on how the plan was going to play itself out, said Sgt. 1st Class Arnall Spann, 35th ADA fire control officer NCOIC. It gave us a chance to work directly in the same environment that we would in the event of war, while helping us visualize how we are going to exercise

our wartime mission and how we get to our wartime locations. This ROC drill also afforded our command team to see that our junior commanders have thought through the entire process of deploying their Soldiers to a remote location and challenged the entire staff to think through the support that we should be given the firing units. You can only make so much sense of an operation order on paper, but once you see it on the ground it makes more sense, Townsend said. Soldiers confirmed that the drills help them better understand the entire picture of an operation. x

6-52 Soldiers reenact march


By Capt. Jeremy Tennent 35th Air Defense Artillery
SUWON AIR CASE One hundred Soldiers of the 6th Battalion, 52nd Air Defense Artillery proudly marched in traditional Korean military costumes as part of Suwon Citys historical re-enactment of the march of King Jeongjo, who built the wall and palace in Suwon around 1799. Wearing the traditional military garb instead of ACUs and carrying spears instead of M-16s, the Iron Horse Soldiers became part of the annual parade through the historic site of Hwaseong Fortress. The reaction of the Korean people was really great, said Capt. Raleigh Voight, the battalion signal officer. The soldiers had a great time and the Koreans just loved it. Annually, the Iron Horse soldiers support the Suwon City event with volunteer hours and time to participate in the parade. The march was along a route of about two miles, from Suwons Manseok Park, along Jeongjo-ro, through the massive walls of Hwaseong Fortress via Janganmun, the north gate, to the palace constructed as an alternate capital for the historic Joseon Dynasty. The parade then moved to the southern gate known as Paldalmun, where the volunteers boarded buses to return to the air base. The parade was sponsored entirely by Suwon city, with volunteers receiving free lunch and bus rides to and from Suwon and Osan Air Bases. x
