WELCOME TO U.S. ARMY GARRISON HUMPHREYS
Home of U.S. Forces Korea, Eighth Army, and 2nd Infantry Division
Located within the seaport city of Pyeongtaek, along the western coast of South Korea, and approximately 55 miles south of Seoul, Camp Humphreys is home to the Army's most active airfield in the Pacific and the center of the largest construction and transformation project in the U.S. Department of Defense's history.
In addition to its airfield, there are several U. S. Army tactical and direct support units located on Camp Humphreys, including the 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade, elements of the 1st Signal Brigade, 501st Military Intelligence Brigade, 65th Medical Brigade, and many other military units and commands.
On Nov. 13, 2007, USFK and South Korean officials conducted a groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion of Camp Humphreys. Under that plan, the 28,500 U.S. troop presence in South Korea will be consolidated into two regional hubs, in Pyeongtaek and Daegu.
Now the largest Army installation in the Pacific, encompassing 3,453 acres, Camp Humphreys is an expanded community, with newly constructed barracks and family housing, four new schools (one high school, one middle school and two elementary schools), five dedicated child and youth service facilities, a 90,000 square foot Commissary and a host of other community support programs and facilities. Also, as home to the Desiderio Army Airfield, Camp Humphreys is the premier power projection platform on the Korean Peninsula.
