Vincent Brooks

Army Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea and United Nations Command, led the opening of a new USFK/UNC headquarters Friday at Camp Humphreys in South Korea, DoD News reported Tuesday.

Both commands’ relocation from Seoul to Camp Humphreys is part of a $10.7 billion investment, the report noted.

Army Garrison Yongsan has served as USFK and UNC’s homebase since the end of Korean War hostilities.

South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo joined Gen. Brooks and Sgt. Maj. Steven Payton during the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new HQ building.

Representatives from UNC’s 17 sending states attended the event that also honored Army Gen. John William Vessey Jr., the first commander of the Combined Forces Command.
