The Command Information program is the USAG Yongsan Commander's tool for keeping community members informed about issues, policies and events. Command Information also provides an avenue of communication between the community and the USAG Yongsan Command Group.
Communication of USAG Yongsan news and information to U.S., Korea and International media.
The goal of the USAG Yongsan Community Relations program is to strengthen Korean-American relations at local and national levels.
The program includes such community outreach activities as the U.S. Forces Korea Good Neighbor Program, sponsorship of orphanages and homes for the elderly, staff rides, support for Korean-American Friendship and People-to-People International groups, a host of educational outreach contacts with area schools and universities and involvement in community cleanup campaigns.
Cultural outreach programs include participation by USAG Yongsan Soldiers in Korean holiday activities and tours to sites of popular or historic interest.
The USAG Yongsan Public Affairs Office also facilitates military-to-military partnership programs.
Members of the media who would like to visit USAG Yongsan to cover an event or to interview soldiers must contact the USAG Yongsan Public Affairs Office.
