I was a little surprised to see an orange and white checkered water tower just before Gumi in the small town of APO as I was driving down to Deagu. The new DRMO facility was to open in July; however, it didn’t appear to be occupied when I drove by but does look like it is ready to be moved into.
You can read and see before and after photos about this facility in this PDF document.
It seems like an odd choice of location for this facility. Maybe someone can shed some light on why this facility was built in the small town of APO, 25 kilometers North of Camp Carroll.
With all the base closures in recent years, is anyone surprised to see a new U.S. facility in Korea built from the ground up?
