The U.S. Army in Daegu awarded three South Koreans with the Commander’s Award for Civilian Service during a Wednesday ceremony on Camp Henry, South Korea.

Brig. Gen. Raymond V. Mason, commander of the 19th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary), called the awards a “small token of our appreciation” to thank some of the Daegu citizens for their contributions.

Honored were Moon Shin-ja, president of the Future Knowledge Forum at Daegu Catholic University; Kim Hak-bong, senior adviser to the Daegu mayor; and Son Jeong-kil, the command’s “cultural ambassador” and president of the BoKwang Textile Company.

The three were “recognized for their contributions to the ‘Good Neighbor’ partnership” that supported the U.S.-South Korean alliance and improved soldiers’ understanding of the Korean culture, according to an Army news release.
