Tough family tour in S. Korea
The U.S. Army in South Korea is not ready for what command sponsorship brings to the peninsula. The Army in South Korea is geared toward one-year hardship tours. There is a lack of just about everything, making the tour in South Korea unpleasant for most family members — everything from a lack of health and dental coverage to unit tempos that are still based on one-year-tour ratios.
Germany should be the standard example for command sponsorship. My family has found the Army in South Korea to be an unpleasant experience.
