Via a reader tip comes pictures taken by the 1st Brigade Public Affair Office of the on going clean up effort of the Dongducheon ville being assisted by Soldiers stationed at Camp Casey. The work these Soldiers are doing is quite extensive and it is good to see that local ROK Army units, KNP’s, and NGO’s are assisting with the recovery operations as well.
Here are some of the pictures from Day 1 of the clean up on July 29, 2011:
In this picture it looks like the club owners laid out the furniture damaged from flooding to be picked up.
More garbage waiting to be picked up.
US Soldiers march through the ville to assist with clean up.
In this picture a US Soldier is providing medical care to a Korean civilian.
Korean National Police officers assist with the clean up.
Looks like some tired KNP's.
US Soldiers pick up trash in the ville.

It looks like in the background of this picture that even the Juicy Girls are chipping in to help with the clean up.
Are the women in the background Juicy Girls as well?
This is one happy ajumma.
Here is are a few of the photos of Day 2 of the clean up operation that occurred on July 30, 2011:
Still plenty of trash and mud to pick up.

A well deserved rest.
This is really a great job by everyone involved. I think that as hard as the work was to do at the time, that this will be one of the things that everyone involved will look back on with a lot of pride in what they accomplished by helping out the local community.
