CAMP HUMPHREYS, Republic of Korea - Retired Gen. Gordon Sullivan, former Army chief of staff, visited here June 6 to receive a brief on post transformation.
Sullivan, president of the Association of the United States Army, received the briefing from Mark Cox, United States Army Garrison Humphreys deputy commander.
Cox noted that the number of family members on post has tripled in the last four years.
"When I came here in 2007, we didn't have enough children for a baseball team," Cox said.
But the post population will steadily rise, with 513 new buildings going up to accommodate the increase. It represents the largest construction project in the history of the Department of Defense.
The size of Humphreys will almost triple, to 3,348 acres, while the population will boom to about 34,000.
Cox laid out how the new arrivals will be taken care of.
"This is very encouraging for the troops who are going to be stationed here, and their families," Sullivan said. "It's very impressive."
