FORT BENNING, Ga. - The commander of the Korea-based 2nd Infantry Division and his wife will address Fort Benning Soldiers and families with Korean assignments in their future from 3:30-6 p.m., Wednesday, April 28 in Pratt Hall (Room 328), which is located in Ridgway Hall (Bldg. 35).
Maj. Gen. Michael S. Tucker, who took command of the Warrior Division last October, and his wife Teresa will discuss family life and Korean culture, as well as training and professional development opportunities during their presentation.
The Tuckers will speak directly to Fort Benning personnel with permanent change of station orders for Korea, but they also invite anyone interested in future Korean assignment opportunities to attend the briefing. Participants will receive welcome packets filled with helpful brochures, pamphlets, and administrative and reference materials.
"The CG and Mrs. Tucker are very passionate about communicating the opportunities available within our division," said Lt. Col. Russell D. Goemaere, 2nd ID Public Affairs Officer. "They strongly believe in what we have to offer - the chance to conduct full spectrum training, greater stability and predictability in personal and family life, and opportunities to explore a very unique and beautiful country."
"They want to discuss and address the concerns of Soldiers and families who have some trepidation about coming to Korea," Goemaere said. "They also want to encourage Soldiers on assignment to Korea to bring their families when they PCS. This should be a terrific opportunity for anyone at Fort Benning who is considering taking advantage of assignment opportunities in Korea - now or in the future. "
