Before You Depart (Command Sponsorship)
If you would like to bring your family to Korea, visit your local Military Personnel Division (MPD) Office or S1 to apply for command sponsorship before you depart. Communicate with your sponsor as well to help you make an informed decision. Applying well in advance will help ensure your desires are known to us. Along with that application, you will need to submit a completed Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) screening for overseas travel, so we can determine if we can meet the needs of your family.
Welcome to USAG Daegu
Welcome to the United States Army Garrison Daegu/Area IV and congratulations on what will be an exciting and fulfilling assignment. Over the next decade our installations, Camps Walker, George and Henry in Daegu, Camp Carroll in Waegwan, and Busan Storage Facility and Pier 8 in Busan, will continue to grow as one of the two enduring Army hubs in the Republic of Korea and the center for logistics expertise for the Korean peninsula.
We have built a new middle-high school and we have completed two of four new, state-of-the-art housing towers.
Those facilities complement other great places, like our 18-hole Evergreen Golf Course, libraries, Community Activity Centers, guest lodges, swimming pools, fitness centers and education centers, located at both Camp Walker and Camp Carroll to service our geographically dispersed population.
With all the construction associated with our growth you will experience occasional inconveniences, but one thing will remain constant: our garrison staff anticipates your arrival with a willingness to serve your needs.
To ensure each newcomer receives prompt, convenient in-processing services we have consolidated the most frequented services into a new Soldier Support Center located at the heart of Camp Walker. There you will be able to get your ID card, register in DBIDS, register a vehicle, visit the ACS and WIC offices, sign up for Red Cross classes and meet with the Housing staff.
The overwhelming majority of Family support facilities, programs and services are located on Camps Walker, Henry and George in Daegu -- the main Exchange, full sized commissary, elementary through high school, Child and Youth Services including the CDC and Teen Center, a full service ACS, Wood Medical Clinic and Bodine Dental Clinic.
The majority of facilities and services on Camp Carroll in Waegwan are for Soldiers who live on post and include the Carroll Troop Medical/Dental Clinic,Commissary and a small shoppette.
While Families have the option to live off-post in the Waegwan area, please understand that with the exception of Community Activity Centers, fitness centers, bowling centers, and theaters, the reality is that the Daegu area family-friendly facilities will never be duplicated on Camp Carroll.
Schools and Youth Programs
Employment opportunities are limited for spouses who accompany their Soldier; however, we regularly seek new employees in our Child Development Center and Child, Youth and School Services and we are constantly exploring options for off- and on-post employment for spouses. Visit Army Community Service to participate in the Spouse Newcomers Briefings and Spouse Employment Workshops.
