Seoul —Brig. Gen. Richard Stevens, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Pacific Ocean Division Commander, visited Korea for the 2012 Society of American Military Engineers Peninsula Engineer Conference April 3-5.

“It is always great to visit and see firsthand the significant contributions being made by our Far East District team,” said Stevens.  “The construction efforts in support of transformation on the peninsula are immense.  I’m confident the FED team is more that up to the task.  They are definitely Building Strong in Korea!”

Stevens was able to visit members of the Far East District in Seoul and at U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys.

At USAG Humphreys Stevens was able to tour the new Senior Leaders’ Quarters which are expected to open later this year.  He looked at a mock-up unit which showcases how future senior leaders at USAG Humphreys will live.

Stevens was also briefed on the new elementary and high schools by Amber Houston, an engineer with the Korea Programs Relocation Office.  These schools are very important projects as they are the first vertical construction projects as part of the Yongsan Relocation Plan and are expected to be complete by summer 2013.
