Building Bridges

Republic of Korea (ROK) Army Soldiers work on a pontoon bridge during a joint U.S.-South Korea river-crossing exercise in April 2016 in Yeoncheon, South Korea, near the Demilitarized Zone that separates North and South Korea. The drill simulated how ROK Soldiers and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would rebuild bridges destroyed by enemy shells. The U.S. and South Korea signed a memorandum of understanding in March 2016 to improve operations, enabling the two militaries to conduct new types of training, including bridge building.
