Needed—Air Training Space in Korea

According to Army Gen. Burwell Bell, getting adequate air training space—particularly for air-to-ground training—is a key issue for US Forces Korea. Burwell, USFK leader, told the House Armed Services Committee last week, “We do not have the ranges that I believe are required to ensure our competency day to day.” He said that USAF had access to ranges “until several months back” and was promised use of a new range. The new arrangement has met local resident resistance. Burwell maintained that he is “trying to resolve this” with South Korea.
