USAG Yongsan-Casey, Republic of Korea [November 24, 2021] – About 20 Camp Casey Soldiers from Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers, also known as BOSS, a service organization that helps Soldiers build relationships and comradery, visited Do-Dream School for the Disabled on Tue., Nov. 23, to deliver canned goods for Thanksgiving.
The Do Dream School for the disabled is located at the heart of Dongducheon and just outside Camp Casey’s main gate. The school provides literacy education for adult students with various handicaps.
“It’s about the katchi kapchida, everybody coming together,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Wayne M. Butterbrodt, the U.S. Army Garrison Yongsan-Casey senior enlisted advisor to the garrison commander. “We want to say thank you, while teaching Soldiers about stewardship in the Army profession.”
The donation from more than 300 Soldiers equaled about 3,000 items.
The students entertained the Soldiers with song and a guitar performance. Additionally, they gifted items to show their appreciation.
The Camp Casey BOSS President, Spc. Thao Bee coordinated with the units to ensure participation.
Camp Casey is the U.S. Army’s longest and most forward deployed installation. It’s about 20 minutes from the DMZ.
The BOSS program allows Soldiers and commanders to address the well-being and morale issues of the single and unaccompanied soldiers. Through BOSS Soldiers form strong bonds with the local community through volunteer activities.
