Welcome to United States Forces Korea. Our mission is to deter aggression and if necessary, defend the Republic of Korea (ROK) to maintain stability in Northeast Asia. The Service Members of the United States and the Republic of Korea have stood together for more than 60 years maintaining the Armistice and setting the conditions for stability and prosperity in the Republic of Korea. As a result, the Republic of Korea has flourished since the end of the Korean War and is now a respected, successful, and thriving democracy. The important mission in Korea gives Service Members excellent training opportunities. Along with some of the most realistic and effective training conducted by our Armed Forces, the training is multi-national, combined, and joint. You will not only train and work with Service Members from different services, but you will train and work with our ROK partners and the United Nations Command Sending States. The quality of life in the ROK is great, and you will have an opportunity to experience a magnificent culture. The South Korean people are gracious hosts with an interesting history. For Service Members and their Families, we have a community atmosphere with many activities for single Service Members, Civilians, and Children of all ages. For those that are coming to Korea, the United States Forces Korea website is set up to assist you with your move and learn about command and community information. On the site, you will find an overview of the command vision, priorities, policies, command messages, and other critical information. This information is to ensure that you and your family are prepared for a challenging and very rewarding assignment in Korea. Thank you and Katchi Kapshida! (We Go Together)
