ITS ABOUT TIME: The U.S. the the ROK talk about moving the main headquarters of the U.S. military in Korea out of Yongsan.
"We are implementing a Land Partnership Plan, which will return to the Korean government almost half the land that our bases now occupy. Together with the South Korean government, we are also looking at alternative locations for our base in Yongsan," Amb. to South Korea Thomas Hubbard said.Whatever one thinks about the long-term benefits or drawbacks to an American military presence in Korea, this is a long-overdue imperative. Of course talking about moving and actually doing it are two different things.
