Location and Amenities:  Korea is a safe, modern country with beautiful mountains, coast line, and access to vacation spots around Asia.   USAG-Humphreys is an hour and a half drive south of Seoul, 40 minutes south of Osan Air Base, and 15 minutes from the city of Pyongtaek.  Humphreys is not far from night life, restaurants, and shopping.  The Humphreys Exchange and Commissary, Food Court and Restaurants offer typical American amenities.  HAO employees generally chose to live in town right outside the gate, in the City of Pyongtaek, or in the area surrounding Osan Air Base.  School age dependants attend either the DODDS American Elementary/Middle School at Humphreys or the DODDS American High School at Osan Air Base. The Humphreys High School is scheduled to open in time for the 2013-2014 School Year.
