Far East District leadership visits Kunsan resident office to inspect the concrete placement of a hardened aircraft flow through shelter. A total of 10 shelters will be constructed, each with a fuel pantograph arm connected to an in-ground fuel tank. When finished, this project will service Kunsan Air Base aircraft with quick fuel turn around capabilities, provide semi hardened protection and ultimately support mission requirements.

On March 1, Susan Sutton (sixth from right), deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi, presented the Ninh Thuan Province disaster management coordination center to the people of Vietnam during a ceremony. The Alaska District managed the construction of the two-story facility, which is one of 11 similar projects completed along Vietnam’s coastal provinces that are hit by cyclone and flooding events. In addition to the building, a communications system will also support efforts to prevent and minimize loss of life and property during emergencies. The total cost of the building is about $693,400 and required 11 months to complete.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Alaska District turned over a new dormitory to the Air Force Dec. 21 at Eielson Air Force Base near Fairbanks. Building 2205 is state-of-the-art, three-stories and will accommodate 168 enlisted personnel.
Major construction on the United States Forces Korea (USFK) operations center is underway. The operations center, a 377,000 square-foot, two-level underground facility, will support the USFK headquarters requirements as part of the relocation of forces to U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys. The project will provide facilities for USFK's mission during armistice, crisis, and wartime.
