Accompanied Tour Length Changes at Some S. Korea Locations

By December 15, 2008

Follow me on:

At the request of the commander, U.S. Forces Korea, the Department of Defense has approved command sponsorship of families at two new locations in Korea and an increase in tour lengths for accompanied service members permanently assigned there. Accompanied tours at five locations (Pyeongtaek, Osan, Daegu, Chinhae, and Seoul) will increase from 24 months to 36 months while two additional locations (Dongducheon and Uijongbu) will allow 24-month accompanied tours.. Unaccompanied tours will remain at 12 months for all seven locations and 24 months for key personnel.

As USFK moves forces to Camp Humphreys and expands infrastructure and services, the command expects to eventually increase the number of service members in Korea with sponsored families from about 2,135 today to about 14,250 when tour normalization is completed.
