Command Sgt. Maj. Jason R. Copeland gives keynote remarks at KATUSA ETS ceremony
At the Camp Red Cloud Theater on Camp Red Cloud in Uijeongbu Sept. 20, KATUSAs – South Korean Soldiers assigned to the U.S. Army – end their military service with an ETS ceremony.
During the ceremony the Soldiers heard farewell remarks from several senior leaders, including as keynote speaker Command Sgt. Maj. Jason R. Copeland, U.S. Army Garrison Casey’s senior enlisted leader.
Copeland told the KATUSAs he believed that the skills they’d gained during their military service would stand them in good stead through life.
And he noted that “Our KATUSA and U.S. Soldiers live together, eat together, train together, and gain cross-cultural insight and close ties” through their shared military service. “As you pass one last time through the Camp Red Cloud Main Gate, and move forward through life,” Copeland said, “my hope is that you’ll look back with very fond memories of the times we have shared.”
