CAMP HUMPHREYS, South Korea -- As part of his tour of U.S. Army Garrisons in the Pacific, Commander, Installation Management Command and Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management, Lt. Gen. David D. Halverson landed at Desiderio Army Airfield to get a first-hand look at ongoing construction and transformation initiatives currently underway here, July 25.

Camp Humphreys is home to the Army's most active overseas airfield and one of the largest construction and transformation projects in Department of Defense history.

Halverson was accompanied by the Pacific Region Director, Debra D. Zedalis, IMCOM command sergeant major, Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey S. Hartless and Pacific Region command sergeant major, Command Sgt. Maj. Phillip D. Pandy.

The morning began with an aerial tour of the installation and key construction sites, led by Col. Darin S. Conkright, the U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys commander.

Halverson then visited the Humphreys Community Fitness Center, current and future Soldiers' quarters, Army Family Housing areas, and several other construction areas, to include a state-of-the-art hospital and dental campus, as well as multiple Soldier and family support structures.

After the morning tour, Halverson and Hartless took time to have lunch with Soldiers at the Provider Grill. This gave the general and his senior enlisted advisor an opportunity to thank them for their service in support of the enduring alliance between the U.S. and the Republic of Korea.

"Camp Humphreys is not the same Camp Humphreys that was here when I commanded a brigade in 1999," Halverson said. "It has changed a lot and is going to continue to change."

The visit concluded with a Town Hall for the Garrison workforce, where the general discussed his priorities and what the future holds for IMCOM, in Korea and around the globe.

"A unique thing that we do here at IMCOM is take care of Soldiers and families everyday around the world," he said. "You are not going to accomplish your mission unless you do take care of Soldiers, because you need their trust. Trust has to be about your deeds, not your words. "In our business, you have to be customer-service focused."

Halverson wrapped up his tour of the garrison with an awards ceremony, during which several Soldiers, Department of the Army Civilians and host-nation employees were recognized for their service and exemplary contributions in support of the ROK-U.S. Alliance.
