ARLINGTON, Va. — The Navy moved the headquarters of its forces in South Korea from downtown Seoul to an Army facility further south on the peninsula.
According to an internal Navy directive, the headquarters of commander, U.S. Naval Forces Korea, has moved from the U.S. Army Garrison Yongsan facility to U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys, located near Osan Air Base and the city of Pyeongtaek.
The move, part of the “alliance transformation,” the directive said, allows the Navy command to be co-located with the commander of U.S. Forces Korea. The move was effective July 1.
