U.S. Army Human Resources Command release
The 2nd Infantry Division/ROK-U.S. Combined Division is hosting a recruiting and sponsorship town hall 4-5 p.m. Eastern Time Oct. 26, 2023, for those who want to learn more about serving in South Korea.
The 2nd Inf. Div. team is more than 12,000 Soldiers strong with nearly 900 Families and some 2,000 Family members.
Serving in the U.S. Army’s only combined division is an assignment of purpose where Soldiers will excel in the profession of arms. The unit conducts daily operations with our Republic of Korea army allies to deter aggression and maintain peace on the Korean Peninsula. This is where Soldiers must be ready all the time because they are preparing to fight tonight – this is not just a slogan but the real deal. Knowing our essential role in this pivotal area of operations gives division teammates a purpose in daily tasks and makes contributions much more meaningful.
Joining this team offers key development assignments, promotion opportunities, opportunities to apply for joint credit, and a unique experience working with the Republic of Korea army, Korean nationals, and Korean augmentees to the U.S. Army, or KATUSAs.
The 2nd Inf. Div. includes Division Headquarters, 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade, Division Sustainment Brigade, and 2nd Inf. Div. Artillery, all located at Camp Humphreys, and 210th Field Artillery Brigade at Camp Casey, just 13 miles from the Korean Demilitarized Zone.
Although Families are not authorized to live in Camp Casey, the command offers Soldiers the option to use command sponsorship that allows their Families to live at Camp Humphreys while they work at Camp Casey.
Camp Humphreys is the U.S. Army’s largest overseas installation and offers Soldiers and Families modern on-post housing in residential towers with up to five bedrooms; a hospital and clinics; elementary, middle, and high schools; child care centers; after school care; Post Exchange services; commissary; two movie theaters; a bowling alley, six restaurants; three KATUSA snack bars; a water park; and multiple gyms including a three-story facility.
South Korea, known as the “Land of the Morning Calm,” offers an endless list of beaches, mountain ranges, temples, amusement and water parks, shopping, and entertainment. There is no longer a curfew for U.S. Soldiers and their Families leaving the country open for travel. For those who do not have a vehicle or choose not to drive, South Korea provides a wide variety of public transportation making travel easy. South Korea is in the perfect location to travel anywhere in the Pacific including China, Japan, Thailand, New Zealand, Vietnam, and many other desirable locations are a short flight away.
