Thanksgiving with FMWR

A

s the Mayflower left the shores of England in 1620, they came across Cape Cod. After reaching their final destination, 102 pilgrims on this voyage settled down and established a home at Massachusetts Bay. As time progressed and seasons changed, many suffered. There were outbreaks of contagious diseases and by the end of winter, only half of the passengers on the Mayflower had survived. As spring approached, the pilgrims migrated ashore where they met an Abenaki Indian who spoke English. Later, the Indians taught the pilgrims how to survive on this new land. In November 1621, the Pilgrims organized a feast and invited the Native Americans to join them. After celebrating this feast together annually during the month of November, President Abraham Lincoln finally proclaimed Thanksgiving as a holiday in1863. FMWR has planned Thanksgiving events, activities, and meal options for you and your family. Hannam Village & Yongsan Library will have a selection of Thanksgiving books on display for you and your family.

Buk Han Mountain W

hile most enjoy sightseeing and exploring Korea’s wonders, the Moyer Community Activities Center (Moyer CAC) is giving you the opportunity to do this at Buk Han Mountain. Buk Han Mountain towers over the northwestern landscape of Seoul and it is known to be the most popular mountain in all of Korea. Buk Han Mountain was first designated as a National Park in 1983 and it covers roughly 80 square kilometers of land. There are three major peaks on Buk Han but the highest and most popular pe-ak is around 836.5m high. Resembling other mountains, Buk Han has smooth and sharp curves which contrast to the many valleys and rivers flowing towards the bottom. It is said to also have more than 1,300 different kinds of animal and plant life living on the mountain. Besides the beautiful aspects of Buk Han Mountain, this National Park carries a rich history and cultural treasures. As you progress to the top of the 11 Buk Han Mountain Tour

mountain, you will come across the Daeseomun Gate. When the Buk Han Mountain fortress was built in 132 A.D. during the Korean Baekje Dynasty, the Daeseomun Gate was built to be the base line of defense against any potential invasions. When the Mongol invaders attacked in 1232, they successfully captured the country of Korea except for Kangwha Island (located west of Seoul). In 1592, Korea was then invaded by Hideyosi and in 1636, Manchu China took over. The fortress was eventually left in ruins but in 1711, King Sukjong reconstructed and expanded the fort-ress. When reconstruction was complete, the wall stretched out to it’s current length of 12.7 km. Although much has changed since 1711, the wall is still standing strong. Aside from the Daeseomun Gate, Buk Han Mountain has many other beautiful attractions including caves, rivers and beautiful trees. Locals utilize the mountain to work out, rest and relax. Moyer CAC has a tour scheduled to

explore Buk Han Mountain on Saturday, 12 November. The cost to go on this trip is a $5.00 bus fee and entrance is free. Patrons can either sign up at Moyer or K16 CAC but all patrons must register no later than 9 November. If there’s enough time, patrons will have the chance to taste some of the healthiest foods at the bottom of the mountain. From a few traditional alcoholic beverages to some of the best soups, this area is a perfect place to recuperate. Also, if you’re in need of a few necessary hiking items such as a walking/hiking stick, gloves, or sun block, you will find plenty of tents around the eating areas. For more information on this tour, please call Moyer CAC at 723-3291, K-16 CAC at 741-6030 or go to the USAG Yongsan, FMWR Facebook page.

Community Spotlight

O

U.S. Army Rugby Korea

n week nights, I walk to the Collier Community Fitness Center and as I approach the fitness center’s parking lot, I always see the bright lights of Field #12. Rugby players run back and forth with enthusiasm and audience members never fail to cheer them on. Since I come from a small town, I am always amazed by the possibilities and endless supply of opportunities such as U.S. Army Rugby Korea.

With twenty years of playing rugby in a semi-professional league in Great Britain, Captain Steve Palacios (Eco Company 2-2 Aviation Battalion), started the league in January 2011. He was successful in bringing Rugby to Camp Humphreys, Camp Casey, and Osan Air Base. U.S. Army Rugby Korea and Captain Palacios's goal is to have a team located in all U.S. Installations in the Republic of Korea. “Rugby is a perfect sport for our Military and Civilian population. Rugby will empower the players, implement a sense of team cohesion and it will build a stronger and heathier community” says Captain Palacios. The current teams have male players with an exception to USAG Yongsan's team in which Lindsey Seelabach is a player. “She is tough as nails” states Captain Palacios, “I want to push to have female rugby teams as well.” Being a part of a team can improve all facets of one's life socially, mentally and physically. The great part is no previous experience is necessary to join the U.S. Army Rugby Korea team. Team members with outstanding experience will be there to train you every step of the way. “The biggest focus for new players is to omit all knowledge of football prior to playing rugby and

to be in relatively good shape due to the demands of the game”, explains Captain Palacios. The cost to join is free but members will eventually need to go to USARugby.org and register for a CIP number which costs $35.00. There is also an additional 98,000 KRW for a kit, team jersey, shorts and socks. If you're interested in joining your local rugby team, send a message to U.S. Army Rugby Korea's Facebook, email army.rugby.korea@gmail.com, or contact Captain Palacios at 010-2731-8441. Another way to join is show up at one of their practices. The team practice is held every Tuesday from 2000-2130 at Field #12 (next to the Collier Community Fitness Center Parking Lot) and every Saturday from 1000-1200 at the Seoul American High School Field. Community members are also welcome to participate by attending games and cheering from the sidelines. The next rugby game will be either held on the 12th or 19th of November featuring an EXPACT and Military rugby team at the Seoul American High School Field. Dates can be verified by contacting Captain Palacios. Thank you Captain Palacios for making a positive impact in our community! If you would like to place a spotlight on someone or something that makes a positive impact on the community, please send an email to dfmwr.marketing@ hotmail.com. Community Spotlight 20

MOON RABBIT KOREA Information & Tours

Veteran’s Day Exploring Ulleungdo Island & Dokdo Islet, 11~12 November 1 Night, 2 Days

Price: $320 (Double Occupancy) Ulleungdo Island and Dokdo Islet were both created by volcanic eruptions over 2.5 million years ago. The only way to get here is to travel to the East Coast and take a ferry from Donghae or Pohang port. As such, the steep cliffs, jagged rocks, and the East Sea create a fascinating landscape. Ulleungdo and Dokdo embrace a special place in the hearts of the Korean people not only for their beautiful nature but also for being a part of Korea's territory guarding the easternmost region of Korea. Even a traveler unfamiliar with the unique features of volcanic islands will appreciate the wonders of the rugged rocks, simply by walking along the coastal path for an afternoon. Once night falls, the island reveals its docile side, as dozens of lights from the cuttlefish boats dot the sea around the island. Come and visit the beauty of Ulleungdo and Dokdo, which face each other on the East Sea. Price includes: Round trip fare (bus & ferry), one (1) night accommodation and resort, one day breakfast, sightseeing with an English speaking tour guide.
