Col. Kim, Hee-soo, commander, 600th Defense Security Unit, presents a farewell gift to Col. Larry 'Pepper' Jackson, USAG-Red Cloud commander, March 23, at Mitchell's club. The 600th DSU, comprised of five teams, is stationed in northern Gyeongi-gi Province. The first two teams duty is to support security at USAG-Red Cloud and USAG-Casey. The 600th DSU agents cooperate with the Korean National Police and National Intelligence Service to exchange or gather intelligence and support the 2nd Infantry Division with security. Area I, 2ID Intelligence, the Military Police and Criminal Investigation Department are the main partners of the 600th DSU. Dealing with incidents is another role of the 600th DSU. When Soldiers find themselves in trouble off-post, the 600th DSU acts as a negotiator between 2ID and the KNP or local government. In addition to providing security for 2ID, the 600th DSU organizes tours for U.S. Soldiers to the Demilitarized Zone, even arranging lodging to facilitate Republic of Korea/U.S. friendship.
