Units/Tenants (In Alphabetical Order)
Welcome to United States Forces Korea. Our mission is to deter aggression and if necessary, defend the Republic of Korea (ROK) to maintain stability in Northeast Asia.
Readiness is our number one priority. Eighth Army conducts armistice operations along three lines of effort that create Readiness: Training, Strengthening the Alliance, and Transformation. We must never forget that Korea is not at peace, and Eighth Army remains prepared to "Fight Tonight" - daily. This means we will train to the highest levels in the most challenging conditions while maintaining our equipment readiness above the Army standards.
The 2nd Infantry Division is the last remaining permanently forward-stationed division in the U.S Army. The 2nd Infantry Division deters aggression and maintains peace on the Korean Peninsula; and if deterrence fails, “Fight Tonight” in support of the U.S-Republic of Korea Alliance.
If you have an illness or injury that you believe was caused—or made worse—by your active-duty service, you can file a claim for disability benefits 180 to 90 days before you leave the military. This may help speed up the claim decision process so you can get your benefits sooner. Find out how to file a claim through the Benefits Delivery at Discharge (BDD) program—and what to do if you have less than 90 days left on active duty.
