CAMP WALKER, Republic of Korea — The U.S. Army Garrison Daegu command team toured installation facilities and reaffirmed Army leadership's commitment to providing quality services to military children during April, the Month of the Military Child (MoMC).

The first location the team visited was the Camp Walker Child & Youth Services (CYS) building for a MoMC proclamation signing and facility tour, April 4.

During the visit USAG Daegu Garrison Commander Col. Brian P. Schoellhorn and USAG Daegu Senior Enlisted Leader Command Sgt. Maj. Jonathon J. Blue discussed upcoming improvements and visited with members of the CYS staff, whom they recognized for their service to the children of the community.

"The people at CYS are passionate about what they do and passionate about serving the community here," noted Schoellhorn.

Schoellhorn echoed this sentiment days later during an April 15 visit to the newly-renovated Camp Walker Teen Center.

"This is a great example of talented, passionate people working together and using the input of the community to come up with something that can have an immediate impact."

Adapting to the needs of the community has been a priority for the USAG Daegu command team, which has utilized feedback from the community to improve services and continues to meet the Army's commitment to provide quality Army Family Housing.

"This is the future. They have plans for all kinds of things over here—relatively small projects that will make a big impact. I think that’s a great testament to our community down here and what we can do with it," said Schoellhorn.
