CAMP HUMPHREYS -- Brigadier Gen. Flora Darpino, director of the Army Legal Service Agency, visited here on April 3.

She was welcomed by U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys Commander, Col. Joseph P. Moore, and attended an office call with Moore.

Mark Cox, head of the HumphreyDirectorate of Plans, Training, Mobilization, and Security, gave Darpino a Humphreys transformation brief.

The brief included information on the relocation of U.S. Forces to Camp Humphreys, the master plan execution, family housing plan, land development, renovation and construction.

"Humphreys is transitioning from an installation built primarily for unaccompanied Soldiers," Cox said. "There has been a three-fold increase in families since 2008, and we are attempting to provide adaptable services to a changing population. This is the largest construction program in the Army."

The brief also touched on the relocation of U.S. Forces and increased strategic flexibility, improved force protection, and better support to non-combatant evacuation operations. Camp Humphreys will triple in size from 1,210 acres to 3,538. There will also be a significant increase in population from 11,000 to approximately 34,000.

"Beautiful new facilities are being built here at Camp Humphreys," Cox said. "We are demolishing the old, to make room for the new."

"That is fantastic," Darpino said. "That is exactly what we need."
