Addressing what it called “current news reports,” U.S. Forces Korea issued a statement last week saying that “while improvements to readiness remain the command’s first priority, tour normalization is not affordable at this time.” [Stars & Stripes]
You can read the rest at the link, but does anyone think money would ever be taken away from moving families to Germany like what has happened with troops stationed in Korea?
