AFN Pacific – Taekwondo


WITHIN THE COLLIER COMMUNITY FITNESS CENTER,
U.S. ARMY AND ROK ARMY SOLDIERS FACE OFF AGAINST ONE ANOTHER AS PART OF A COMBAT TAEKWONDO
EXHIBITION. “IT’S MORE OF A MORALE BOOSTER BETWEEN
THE TWO DIFFERENT FORCES. YOU HAVE THE U.S. ARMY ALONGSIDE THE ROK ARMY. WITH THE YEARS
WE SPENT WORKING TOGETHER, IT’S JUST KIND OF A CAMARADERIE BUILDER.”
VOLUNTEER TEAMS FROM EACH ARMY GARRISION PARTICIPATE IN THE COMPETITION TO RELEASE PENT UP AGGRESSION
AND BUILD LONG-LASTING FRIENDSHIPS. “SINCE IT IS A SPORTS ACTIVITY WE COMPETE
ON THE MAT, BUT AFTERWARDS WE BECOME GOOD FRIENDS.”
“WE’RE FRIENDS REGARDLESS, WE’RE PARTNERS. IT’S LIKE IF WE CAME OUT AND PLAYED A FRIENDLY
GAME OF FLAG FOOTBALL OR BASKETBALL, NO ONE IS REALLY GETTING UPSET. IT’S JUST US COMING
TOGETHER, DOING SOMETHING WE ALL REALLY LOVE.” PETTY OFFICER GRANT WAMACK, YONGSAN, KOREA.
