Welcome to AREA I, Korea. This geographic area includes all Army Camps North of the city of Seoul (Camps Red Cloud, Casey, Stanley, Hovey, Jackson, and those in the Western Corridor). As you will find, the communities within AREA I have a lot to offer newcomers. Of all the helping agencies in the area, the Family Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (FMWR) presents a host of venues for entertainment and activities that fit any person or family.
Under the auspices of FMWR is Army Community Service (ACS) which is located on Camp Casey --the social and family hub of AREA I. ACS offers programs and assistance to guide soldiers, civilians, retirees, and family members toward successful integration into the community. Our programs include Relocation Readiness, Information & Referral, Financial Readiness, Army Emergency Relief, Family Advocacy, Employment Readiness, Exceptional Family Member Program, New Parent Support, Victim Advocacy, and the Army Volunteer Corps. Within our facility (building 2451) are also the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program, American Red Cross, and the Military Family Life Consultant program (MFLC). Descriptions for each program are located in the various tri-folds and handouts in the Welcome Packet.
You will also find a list of Recommended Family Member In-Processing actions. This extensive list will guide you through the important first steps of in-processing and ensures you are able to use the Commissary & PX (both stores require a "Ration Card"), obtain a USFK driver's license, and register and drive your car. These and other in-processing actions will smooth your transition into the community and free you up for the adventures that await you in Korea. ACS is the one source that can guide you to all soldier and family support agencies in AREA I. Please be assured that the ACS team will assist you and your family members during their stay in Korea.Welcome to Korea…Land of the Morning Calm!
