YONGSAN ARMY GARRISON, Seoul, Republic of Korea – The Republic of Korea-United States Combined Forces Command’s annual Key Resolve and Foal Eagle exercise training windows begin March 7.
Key Resolve, slated for March 7-18, highlights the longstanding and enduring partnership and friendship between the two nations and their combined commitment to the defense of the ROK and regional stability.
Foal Eagle training also starts March 7 and will continue until April 30. The approximately eight week-long Foal Eagle exercise implements a series of several joint and combined field training operations conducted by CFC and USFK component commands (ground, air, naval, and special operations).
Approximately 17,000 U.S. forces will participate with ROK forces in the two exercises.
The United Nations Command has informed the Korean People's Army in North Korea through their Panmunjom mission about Foal Eagle and Key Resolve exercise dates and the non-provocative nature of this training.
