Gonzalez & Waddington – Attorneys at Law

Camp Mujuk Military Defense Lawyers

The only United States Marine Corps military base in South Korea is Camp Mujuk occupying an 84-acre area just south of Pohang, southeast of Seoul and east of Daegu. It was established in 1980 as part of the US assistance to III Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF). Aside from being in close proximity to 1st ROK Marine Corps Division’s home base, the camp’s ideal and strategic location made it a convenient base for Marines in the peninsula who are in rotation for exercises like Key Resolve, Ulchi Focus Lens and Foal Eagle among others.

Three new prototype fuel systems were tested in October 1998 on a beach on the east coast of South Korea to revolutionize the supply of fuel for future naval warriors. The fuel was distributed to Marines who used it for five-week field exercises, amphibious landings, and continuous base camp operations.

Marines travel to Japan and South Korea on rotation to conduct drills and exercises with their South Korean counterparts.
