Korean students get schooled on U.S. military life
By Laurel A. StoneJanuary 25, 2018
USAG Daegu, South Korea - Korean youths are often curious about U.S. military bases and sometimes whisper between themselves about what they may see or experience should they ever pass through the gates. So, when an opportunity presents itself, they're excited to have a chance put rumors to rest and see for themselves how American Soldiers, civilians and families live and work.
Three groups of elementary students participating in a 21-day English camp at Daegu/Gyeongbuk English Village had an opportunity to tour Camp Carroll facilities from January 9 to 11. While on the installation, a total of 70 students visited the fitness center to see first-hand how Soldiers stay fit, before stopping to bowl a few games at the Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Bowling Center and eat lunch at the food court, a popular dining spot for Carroll residents.
"We have a positive relationship with the DGEV," remarked Camp Carroll community relations specialist So, Ki-chun. "Twice annually, they host students from schools across Gyeongbuk province and tour the facilities at Camp Carroll. In the spring, they also provide U.S. Soldiers from the garrison an opportunity to come to the English village to participate in cultural cooking classes."
"This tour was a very special and unforgettable experience for the students because getting a chance to visit a U.S. military base, in and of itself, is an amazing experience," said Mr. Jeong, Soo-yong, chief of the DGEV external affairs office. "They really enjoyed the visit."
