SEOUL, Republic of Korea – Suh Jin-sup, chairman of the Republic of Korea-U.S. Alliance Friendship Association, points to Korean characters on a scroll as he reads them to Lt. Gen. Thomas Bostick, the Chief of U.S. Army Engineers and Commanding General of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, during a "Korean naming ceremony" July 16. Bostick was given the honorific Korean name Park Bo-taek by the association during his visit to the Republic of Korea, where he met with U.S. and Korean military officials and toured the multi-billion dollar construction project at U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys, about 40 miles south of Seoul. Bostick's visit to the Corps of Engineers Far East District in Korea was his first since assuming command May 22. The Corps of Engineers has about 37,600 military and civilian personnel providing project management and construction support in more than 100 countries. U.S. Army photo by Patrick Bray.
