On Camp Casey in Dongducheon, the U.S. Army in Area I hosts a Friendship Dinner for Dongducheon City Mayor Oh Sea-chang and key members of his staff, as well as local civic officials and educators.

Dining on chicken cordon bleu and baked potato at the Warrior’s Catering and Conference Center, the audience heard remarks from Col. Brandon D. Newton, Commander, USAG Area I, who introduced Lt. Col. Brian A. Jacobs, Commander, U.S. Army Garrison Casey.

Jacobs was attending his first friendship dinner with Dongducheon’s mayor since assuming command of USAG Casey in July.

Jacobs thanked the mayor and other Dongducheon officials for their friendship toward and support of the U.S. military community.

Oh expressed the city's continuing goodwill toward its U.S. Army neighbors, and thanked them for their annual donations to aid needy members of the city’s population.

Also attending the dinner were Gregory B. Kirkland, USAG Casey’s Deputy to the Garrison Commander, and Steven J. Ryan, USAG Area I’s Deputy to the Garrison Commander.
