WELCOME TO CAMP HUMPHREYS
9 NOVEMBER 2013
Team Camp Humphreys & Special Guests,
Welcome to Camp Humphreys, South Korea, home to some of the finest Soldiers, Civilians, and Families the Army has to offer. We are excited to host this yearâ€™s Armed Forces Classic and consider it an honor to have championship athletes compete here. I invite each and every one of you to take advantage of all that Camp Humphreys and the host nation communities surrounding our installation have to offer. But most importantly, I would like to thank the men and women who are serving in Korea, thousands of miles away from home, to support our Alliance, defend the Republic of Korea, and provide security and stability in the region. Enjoy the game!
DARIN S. CONKRIGHT COLONEL, SF COMMANDING
SNAPSHOT OF THE UNITED STATES ARMY United Nations Security Council promptly passed Resolutions 82, 83, and 84, calling on United Nation member states to assist South Korea in repelling the attack and authorizing the U.S. to designate the commander of a unified force under the U.N. flag to defend the ROK. In July 1950, South Korean President Syngman Rhee signed the “Pusan Letter” and gave General Douglas MacArthur, Commander-in-Chief of United Nations Command (UNC), operational control over all ROK forces. This step effectively united all allied forces under a single, unified command.
The United States Army is the main branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for landbased military operations. The U.S. Army is also the largest and oldest established branch of the U.S. military. The modern Army has its roots in the Continental Army, which was formed on June 14, 1775, to meet the demands of the American Revolutionary War. The primary mission of the Army is, “to fight and win our Nation’s wars by providing prompt, sustained land dominance across the full range of military operations and spectrum of conflict in support of combatant commanders.” The Army has been in a state of continuous war for the past twelve years, the longest in our Nation’s history. More than 167,000 Soldiers are deployed or forward stationed in nearly 160 countries worldwide. The Army remains a key guardian of our national security. America’s Army is the best trained, best equipped, and best led fighting force in the world, providing a credible and capable instrument of national power. The Army’s ability to provide strategic land power for the Nation makes it uniquely suited to meet these requirements. The Army’s ability to rapidly deploy task organized forces, from company to corps-level, over extended distances, sustain them, and deliver precise, discriminate results is unmatched. The Army’s highly ready, responsive, and capable ground forces prevent conflict through deterrence, by shaping the operational environment and, when necessary, winning the Nation’s wars. THE REPUBLIC OF KOREA AND UNITED STATES ALLIANCE The unbreakable bonds between the United States and the Republic of Korea (ROK) were forged during the Korean War. Newly liberated from colonization, the Republic of Korea faced a severe test on June 25, 1950, when North Korea launched a surprise attack across the 38th Parallel. In response, the

The “blood-forged ROK-U.S. Alliance” was created at a great price. The bitter three-year conflict resulted in more than 33,000 U.S. service members killed in action, more than 92,000 wounded, and another 8,000 who remain unaccounted for to this day. The ROK also suffered grave losses with more than 220,000 combat deaths, and 700,000 wounded. The civilian casualties on both sides are estimated to be as high as two million. After the Armistice Agreement was signed on July 27, 1953, Seoul and Washington signed a Mutual Defense Treaty on October 1, 1953, which authorized the continued stationing of U.S. forces in the ROK. In 1978, the newly established ROK-U.S. Combined Forces Command (CFC) took over as the Alliance’s warfighting command. Since then, UNC continues to enforce and maintain the Armistice Agreement, while CFC plans and manages resources in order to carry out its mission of defending the ROK. The ROK-U.S. Alliance matches its shared values with deeds, supporting international security around the globe. The ROK fought alongside the United States in Vietnam and deployed with the United States to Iraq and Afghanistan. In addition, the ROK conducted counter-piracy operations off the coast of Somalia and currently performs peacekeeping operations in eight locations with the United Nations. These and other endeavors highlight the breadth and depth of the ROK-U.S. partnership and demonstrate the expanding nature of ROK military capabilities and commitment to global security interests.
ABOUT UNITED STATES ARMY GARRISON HUMPHREYS designated as the 23rd Direct Support Group) was activated as a separate installation command of the Eighth U.S. Army, responsible for providing direct support, supply, maintenance, munitions storage, and the Eighth U.S. Army Milk Plant. In 1974, with the activation of the 19th Support Brigade, Camp Humphreys was re-designated as U.S. Army Garrison, Camp Humphreys (USAGCamp Humphreys). While USAG-Camp Humphreys remained responsible for all affairs affecting personnel stationed here, the 19th Support Command was responsible for supporting all Eighth U.S. Army and subordinate unit mission requirements.
United States Army Garrison Humphreys (USAG-H) supports the Army’s warfighting mission on Camp Humphreys by working to provide standardized, effective, and efficient services, facilities and infrastructure to the Soldiers, Civilians, and Families stationed here. Camp Humphreys is on its way to becoming a premier military assignment, globally positioned to respond to national or international crises in the Pacific Rim. Located within the seaport city of Pyeongtaek, along the western coast of South Korea, and approximately 40 miles south of Seoul, Camp Humphreys is home to the Army’s most active airfield in the Pacific and the center of the largest construction and transformation project in the U.S. Department of Defense’s history. In addition to its airfield, there are several U. S. Army tactical and direct support units located on Camp Humphreys, including the 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade, elements of the 1st Signal Brigade, 501st Military Intelligence Brigade, 65th Medical Brigade, and many other military units and commands.
Later, the 23rd Direct Support Group and 19th Support were renamed 23rd Support Group (23rd SG) and 19th Theater Army Area Command (19th TAAC). On June 17, 1996, the U.S. Army Support Activity Area III (USASA Area III) was established and given responsibility for the Camp Humphreys peacetime support mission. In 2004, an agreement was signed between the United States and South Korean governments to move the bulk of U.S. forces to garrisons south of the Han River and relocate the United States Forces Korea and United Nations Command Headquarters to Camp Humphreys. These movements are expected to transform Camp Humphreys into the largest U.S. Army garrison in Asia. With the creation of U.S. Army Installation Management Command, USASA Area III was redesignated as U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys on March 15, 2007. On Nov. 13, 2007, United States Forces Korea (USFK) and South Korean officials conducted a groundbreaking ceremony signifying the beginning of Camp Humphreys’ expansion. MISSION The mission of U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys is to provide Soldiers, Civilians, and their Families stationed here with a quality of life commensurate with the quality of their service.
HISTORY The history of Camp Humphreys dates back to the beginning of the 20th century when, in 1919, the Japanese military built the Pyeongtaek Airfield. Later, during the Korean War, Pyeongtaek Airfield was repaired and enhanced by the U.S. Air Force to accommodate a U.S. Marine Air Group and the 614th Tactical Control Group. During and after the war, the airfield carried the simple designation of K-6 on military maps. In 1962, the garrison was renamed Camp Humphreys in honor of Chief Warrant Officer 2 Benjamin K. Humphreys, a pilot assigned to the 4th Transportation Company, who died in a helicopter accident. In 1964, Humphreys District Command (later re-

TRANSFORMATION AND RESTATIONING To posture forces in support of U.S. and ROK national interests on the Korean Peninsula, both governments agreed to consolidate U.S. Forces Korea into two enduring hubs, the largest of which will be Camp Humphreys. By moving into less congested southern areas of the peninsula, the U.S. Army will improve readiness and efficiencies, while further enhancing its partnership with local communities. In the coming years, the Camp Humphreys military community population will more than triple in size, from 10,000 to 36,000 Soldiers, Civilians, and their Family members. Main construction projects underway include unit headquarters buildings, motor pools, barracks, Family housing, medical facilities, a military communications complex, a commissary, a post exchange, schools, and child development centers. Several new barracks, Family housing units, and supporting underground utility systems are already completed and occupied. These initiatives will facilitate transformation of the ROK-U.S. Alliance and the achievement of common strategic objectives. They will also assist in the attainment of the ROK-U.S. Alliance’s objectives to ensure credible deterrence and maintain stability while improving USFK capacity to respond to future defense initiatives.

SENIOR COMMANDER The Senior Commander for all U.S. Army Forces on the Korean peninsula is LTG Bernard S. Champoux, Commanding General, Eighth United States Army. ARMY VALUES Many people know what the words Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage mean. But how often do you see someone actually live up to them? Soldiers learn these values in detail during Basic Combat Training (BCT) and from then on, they live them every day in everything they do — whether they’re on the job or off. In short, the Seven Core Army Values are what being a Soldier is all about.
GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY HOYAS
HEAD COACH In nine seasons as the head coach of the program he has been around since his youth, John Thompson III has made his mark not only on the Georgetown men’s basketball program, but in the elite circles of college basketball. Thompson, who has been a collegiate head coach for 13 seasons, has compiled several coaching milestones: • Since his arrival on the Hilltop, the Hoyas have reached the postseason in all nine seasons. • Including an appearance in 2013, Georgetown has been selected to the NCAA Tournament in seven of the last nine seasons. • In five of the team’s seven NCAA Tournament appearances, the Blue & Gray have been seeded among the top three teams, earning three No. 2 seeds (2007, 2008, 2013) and two No. 3 seeds (2010, 2012). • In the last seven seasons, Georgetown is one of only four schools nationally to have made at least one appearance in the Associated Press Top 25 in seven-straight years. • In 2006-07, Thompson led the program to a 30-7 record as the Hoyas won the BIG EAST Tournament Championship, the NCAA East Regional and advanced to the Final Four for the first time since 1985. • In 2007-08, the Hoyas won back-to-back BIG EAST Regular Season titles (2006-07, 2007-08), posting a twoyear record of 28-6 against conference opponents • In 2012-13, the Blue & Gray won the BIG EAST Regular Season Championship, winning 11-straight games at one point, and Thompson was named the BIG EAST Coach of the Year. • He has led the Hoyas to three appearances in the BIG EAST Tournament Championship game in nine years. • He has twice been named the Black Coaches Association (BCA) Male Coach of the Year and was named the 2007 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Coach of the Year. Recognized as an outstanding talent evaluator who has been nationally-recognized for his in-game coaching, tremendous vision and character, outstanding recruiting and his ability to connect with players, John Thompson III was introduced as Georgetown University 17th Head Coach on April 20, 2004. Thompson arrived on the Hilltop in 2004 with a tremendous pedigree. The second Head Coach at Georgetown named John Thompson, he is the child of one Hall of Fame coach and the student of another, having played for the legendary Pete Carril as an undergraduate at Princeton. Georgetown won its third BIG EAST Regular Season title under Thompson during the 2012-13 season, when the team posted a 14-4 conference record to finish
atop the league standings. Along the way, the Hoyas won 11-straight games against conference opponents, including regular season sweep of long-time rival Syracuse. The Hoyas were a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament and finished the year with a 25-7 overall record. Sophomore forward Otto Porter Jr. was named the BIG EAST Player of the Year and earned First Team AllAmerican honors while also being finalist for the Wooden Award and the Naismith Trophy. One of his best coaching seasons came during the 201112 season, when he guided a young Hoya team that was picked to finish in 10th place in the BIG EAST to a tie for fourth place. Georgetown finished the season with a 24-9 record and was seeded No. 3 in the NCAA Tournament and advanced to the second round. Highlight wins included a 91-88 overtime thriller against then-No. 8 Memphis in the Maui Invitational and an impressive road win at then-No. 4 Louisville to start BIG EAST play. Senior guard Jason Clark was a First Team All-BIG EAST selection and received the league’s Sportsmanship Award, while senior center Henry Sims was a Third Team All-BIG EAST selection and Hollis Thompson earned honorable mention honors. Off the court, Thompson has been an active member of Georgetown University and a presence in the Washington, D.C. community. He speaks at a variety of alumni events throughout the year and has annually joined the members of the Georgetown University Wall Street Alliance in New York City each October. Through his work with his self-named foundation, the JTIII Foundation (which was founded in 2007), Thompson and his wife, Monica, have worked to aid community-based charities that serve at-risk children and families. Thompson, 43, grew up in Washington, D.C., where he graduated from Gonzaga College High School. As a high school senior he was named first team All-Metro by the Washington Post. Thompson’s wife, Monica, is also a Princeton grad (Class of `89). They have three children: Morgan, age 13; John Wallace, age 10; and Matthew, age 8.

SEASON PREVIEW The Georgetown University men’s basketball team enters the 2013-14 season with veteran leadership and experienced players after a 2012-13 season that saw the team finish with a 25-7 record and win the BIG EAST Conference regular season championship. One of the challenges the Hoyas will face, however, is finding a way to replace BIG EAST Player of the Year and First Team All-American Otto Porter Jr., a first round pick of the Washington Wizards in the NBA Draft. Porter Jr. finished the season leading the team in scoring (16.2 ppg) and rebounding (7.5 rpg) and was a candidate for virtually every player of the year award.
rebounds in wins at Notre Dame and Syracuse. Senior guard Aaron Bowen (1.8 ppg and 1.2 rpg) appeared in 24 games and showed flashes, with eight points in a win over Providence and hitting the winning basket against Louisville. Sophomore guard Stephen Domingo appeared in 20 games and is expected to contribute this season. Two newcomers expected to see significant time include junior center Joshua Smith, a transfer from UCLA, and freshman forward Reggie Cameron.
Head Coach John Thompson III, entering his 10th season on the Hilltop, has faced that question year after year – how do you replace someone? And each year, Thompson and his team have found a way to respond, witnessed by reaching the NCAA Tournament in each of the last four seasons and seven of the last nine overall. Georgetown will turn to its upperclassmen to lead the way this season, where senior guard Markel Starks and do-everything forward Nate Lubick return as the most experienced players on the team. Starks, a third-team All-BIG EAST selection last year, finished second on the team in scoring with 12.8 points per game, led the team with 3.0 assists per game and connected on a team-high 61 three-point field goals. Lubick, a starter for the last 78 games dating back to his freshman season in 2010-11, did a little bit of everything for the Blue & Gray, finishing fifth on team in scoring (7.1 ppg), third in rebounding (5.4 rpg) and second in assists (2.9 apg) while connecting on 59.1 percent of his field goals.
Starks will be joined in the backcourt by sophomore D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera and that duo will form a guard pair that, arguably, is one of the best in the BIG EAST Conference. Smith-Rivera, an All-BIG EAST Rookie selection last year, appeared in all 32 games and averaged 8.9 points and 3.0 rebounds while hitting 39 three-point field goals.
Two other starters from last year should be back in those spots again, with junior center Mikael Hopkins and junior guard Jabril Trawick. Hopkins started all 32 games last season, averaging 5.9 points and 2.9 rebounds. Trawick, one of the hardest working players in college basketball, averaged, 5.9 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists last season. Thompson and Georgetown will have depth and experience to turn to when needed. Senior center Moses Ayegba posted solid numbers when he was pressed into action last season, appearing in 28 games while averaging 1.3 points and 2.5 rebounds, including double digit

HEAD COACH A 2013 National Coach of the Year selection, Dana Altman is the 19th head coach in the history of the University of Oregon men’s basketball program. He is 73-37 in three seasons in Eugene and 483-280 in 24 seasons as a head coach at the NCAA Division I level in stints at Oregon, Creighton, Kansas State and Marshall. In his first three years at Oregon, Altman has led the Ducks to three consecutive 20-win seasons and three postseason appearances, including the 2013 NCAA Sweet 16. It marks just the third time in school history UO has produced consecutive seasons of 20+ wins. Altman now has 15 seasons of 20+ wins to his credit. Altman’s 2012-13 Oregon Ducks became the first Oregon team since 2008 to qualify for the NCAA Tournament. The Ducks finished the season 28-9 and won the Pac-12 Tournament. Altman was named the Pac-12 Coach of the Year before going on to earn Jim Phelan National Coach of the Year honors. Senior E.J. Singler was an all-league first team selection, while Damyean Dotson claimed a place on the Pac-12 All-Freshman team. Johnathan Loyd was named Most Outstanding Player of the Pac-12 Tournament as the team spread the honors around. Senior Arsalan Kazemi was a Pac-12 all-defensive pick before going on to become a second round draft choice of the Philadelphia 76ers. During the 2011-12 season, Altman led the Ducks to a 2410 overall record and an 13-5 Pac-12 Conference mark which was good for a share of second place in the final league standings. The Ducks earned a bid to the National Invitation Tournament and recorded victories over LSU and Iowa before falling at top-seed Washington in the tournament quarterfinals. Under Altman’s tutelage, four UO players were recognized as part of the 2012 Pac-12 All-Conference teams. Devoe Joseph became the first Duck since the 2006-07 season to be named first team all-conference. E.J. Singler was named to the all-conference second team and NABC All-District 20 second team, while Garrett Sim earned honorable mention all-league recognition and Tony Woods was named honorable mention all-defensive team. In his first season at Oregon, Altman led the Ducks to the second-highest win total (21) of any first-year UO head coach. Only John Warren (30 wins in 1944-45) posted more in his first year on the sidelines. The 2011 postseason included a pair of wins at the Pacific Life Pac-10 Conference Tournament, highlighted by a 76-59 upset win over No. 2-seed UCLA in the quarterfinals. Oregon participated in the 2011 College Basketball Invitational, defeating Creighton in the best-of-three championship series. Altman arrived at UO after spending 16 seasons
at Creighton where he became the school’s all-time winningest coach with a record of 327-176 (.650). He led the Blue Jays to 13 consecutive postseason appearances, a stretch of 11 straight seasons with 20-plus wins, all while producing 10 or more league victories in each of the last 14 seasons. Those three feats were unmatched in the 103 years of the Missouri Valley Conference. Creighton participated in seven NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournaments and five National Invitation Tournaments under Altman, advancing to the second round of the NCAA championships in both the 1998-99 and 2001-02 seasons. He led the school to a MVC regular-season title in 2000-01 - its first in 10 years. The Bluejays posted a school-record 29 wins in 2002-03. Student-athletes under his direction at CU earned six All-America honors on the court and four Academic AllAmerica laurels in the classroom. Three players he coached at Creighton - Kyle Korver, Rodney Buford and Anthony Tolliver - have played in the NBA. Altman was hired by Creighton on March 31, 1994, after compiling a 68-54 record in four seasons (1990-94) at Kansas State University. During that time, Altman led the Wildcats to three straight postseason tourneys and was named the Big Eight Conference Coach of the Year after leading KSU to a 19-11 record and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 1993. Altman’s final Kansas State club turned heads nationally with a 68-64 win at No. 1 Kansas on Jan. 17, 1994. K-State eventually advanced to play in the NIT Final Four. Altman’s success at KSU followed him from a brief head coaching stint at Marshall where he was named Southern Conference Coach of the Year in 1990. Altman completed his undergraduate education and playing career at Eastern New Mexico University. After earning his associate degree in business administration from Southeast in 1978, Altman graduated magna cum laude from Eastern New Mexico in 1980 with his bachelor’s degree in the same field. Altman and his wife, the former Reva Phillips of Stanton, Neb., have three sons, Jordan, Chase and Spencer, and one daughter, Audra.
UNIVERSITY of OREGON DUCKS
SEASON PREVIEW Call them the Elite Eight, responsible for three extended postseason runs in three seasons at Oregon for head coach Dana Altman.
That message isn’t always well-received, by some of the 12 players the Ducks can bring to campus on official visits each year.
Since Altman arrived in Eugene, he’s relied on a steady influx of transfers, some of them with only one year available to play for the Ducks. The 2013-14 roster continues the trend, with six transfers, three of them seniors.
Altman thinks he’s found the right mix with this year’s group, however. The Ducks figure to be smaller and quicker than last year’s team, perhaps not as strong on the glass in the absence of Kazemi, Emory and Woods, but better from behind the three-point arc, and deeper.
All the new faces can be confusing business for fans of the program. But Altman’s track record would suggest that those faces are worth getting to know now. The headliner in this year’s class of transfers might be forward Mike Moser, a Portland native who played at UCLA and then UNLV. Guard Jason Calliste is another fifthyear transfer, and he may be joined in the backcourt by junior guard and Houston transfer Joseph Young, who has petitioned the NCAA to be eligible this season. There are also three junior-college transfers on hand, including senior forward Richard Amardi, sophomore forward Elgin Cook and junior wing Jalil Abdul-Bassit. The six transfers hope to follow in the footsteps of 2012 allPac-12 selection Devoe Joseph and 2013 senior Arsalan Kazemi, each of whom was a key cog in a lengthy postseason run in his only season at Oregon. Kazemi graduated last year along with fellow transfers Carlos Emory and Tony Woods, and Joseph was a face of the team in 2011-12 along with fifth-year transfer Olu Ashaolu. Altman’s first success with transfers to Oregon was guard Jay-R Strowbridge. The fifth-year transfer from Nebraska via Jacksonville State led the Ducks in three-pointers made and attempted, for a team that won the College Basketball Invitational in Altman’s first year. Tyrone Nared was also on that team, and was a senior in 2011-12 along with Joseph and Ashaolu. Nared started 24 times in two years and Joseph was the Pac-12’s leading scorer as a senior, while Ashaolu, like Strowbridge before him, played primarily off the bench. Those are selfless decisions by players with short windows in which to succeed with the Ducks. But those decisions paid off – all eight transfers the last three years went on to play professionally at some level. The 2011-12 team, which also included new additions Woods and Emory, reached the quarterfinals of the National Invitation Tournament. And then last year, Woods, Emory, Kazemi and transfer Waverly Austin helped Oregon reach the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament. Altman said his assistants – Tony Stubblefield, Kevin McKenna and Brian Fish – deserve credit for identifying players willing to be part of a system.
CAMP HUMPHREYS I SOUTH KOREA
That latter trait will be thanks to the transfers. They’ll complement a group of returners headlined by wing Damyean Dotson, and point guards Dominic Artis and Jonathan Loyd. The coach is not naïve, he said, to the notion the staff needs to improve its track record with high school recruits. The Ducks have had six signees from the last two classes leave the program already. Altman believes he’s got another group of such players on hand this year. It might make it hard for fans to memorize the roster the first few weeks, but come April those will probably be household names.
