US forces recently moved their entire battalion from Camp Casey to Camp Humphreys (far from DMZ), South Korea

CAMP CASEY, South Korea – As part of a bilateral agreement between the U.S. and South Korea, the Soldiers of 2nd Battalion, 34th Armor Regiment moved their personnel and equipment from Camp Casey in Area 1 to Camp Humphreys in Pyeongtaek, South Korea.

The multi-day move, which started on Feb. 21 and ended March 10, has seen the battalion relocate its armored vehicle systems via railcar while the rest of their wheeled vehicle fleet moved by way of convoy from Casey to Humphreys.

“We added another storied chapter into our 75-year history,” said Lt. Col. Bryan Harris, the battalion’s commander. “The move south of the Han River was a great training opportunity and demonstrated the unwavering work ethic and leadership of the Soldiers, non-commissioned officers and officers in the battalion.”

The bilateral agreement, which was signed in October 2014, aims to consolidate U.S. Forces Korea to two enduring hubs south of Seoul in order to enhance readiness, deterrence and defense posture on the peninsula.

Planning for the move was a joint effort between the battalion, the brigade and the 2nd Infantry Division / ROK-US Combined Division’s 194th Combat Sustainment Support Bn., 2nd Sustainment Bde.

“The CSSB was instrumental in our successful move down to Camp Humphreys,” said Capt. John Adams, the battalion’s logistics officer. “They were integrated in our planning process and were present for our (rehearsal of concept) drills.”

Moving an entire battalion took considerable planning and coordination between all the agencies. The move itself wasn’t without challenges. However, the battalion and its partners were able to overcome those challenges with minimal impact.
