During his visit to Redstone Arsenal, Suh met with USASAC Commander Gen. Jeffrey Druschal, left, to discuss the U.S.-ROK security assistance partnership. The South Korean senior military official was in the United States for talks with his U.S. counterpart Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville. During his weeklong visit, he also visited the Army Materiel Command, PEO Missiles and Space, and SMDC before traveling to the Army's Futures Command in Austin, Texas, to learn more about its advancement strategies. U.S.-Korean relations date back to the Joseon Dynasty with the 1882 Treaty of Peace, Amity, Commerce and Navigation, followed by the first U.S. diplomatic envoy to arrive in Korea in 1883. More than a century later, the U.S.-South Korean ties are based on a shared support of democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
