 The commander of I Corps and about 400 personnel from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., are heading to the Korean peninsula to take part in U.S.-South Korean war games that kicked off this week.
 
“I will be forward, and we’ll roughly have a task organization under us that will support the entire [South Korean] operation as part of this yearly exercise,” Lt. Gen. Stephen Lanza said Monday.
 
About 25,000 U.S. and 50,000 South Korean personnel are participating in the drills, which elicit the ire — and hyperbole — of the North Korean regime. The Korean People’s Army issued a statement Monday saying that “the slightest sign of aggression” would result in “a heap of ashes through Korean-style preemptive nuclear strike.”
 
I Corps has already deployed early-entry and tactical command posts in Korea, Lanza said.
