    Korea Posting

    Can anyone tell me if families can join a army soldier when/if they get posted in Korea?

    Yes, but there is a process to go through if you want the military to pay to move you there.

    Thank you for your response. I figured as much. I read in another forum that the family cannot join for postings in Korea.

    Sometimes they can, and sometimes they can't. I believe it will depend on the orders.

    It's not really an all or nothing thing. It may be the case that families cannot go to some postings in Korea. (Ft. Hood has been seeing a lot of 9 month rotations, for example, and dependents can't be on those orders). But another person may get a longer posting with an option to bring dependents.

    It depends on the base/post. Some places are automatically unaccompanied.

    I believe it is only if they are stationed there longer than a year.

    All you need to do is apply for command sponsorship. If there are slots available, and the family members pass the EFMP program, then you will get it. Korea is a very family friendly location. You can also come non-command sponsored if you are willing to. Some risks involved, such as the military member not getting permission to live off base, and medical care for family members and school for children is on a space-available basis.

    Korea is very do-able. I have now been here for over eight years!

    Thank you all for your response. I guess I am just going to have to excercise my patience and wait it out. Where ever it maybe, this is all going to be an adventure to say the least.

    We also got word that we possibly will be going to Korea. His rbi (I think that's what it's called) is showing Seoul Korea Camp Henry.. Which has me worried because I don't believe it's a duty station we can go to.. But there are other posts within driving distance. But those aren't his orders and who knows when we will see them. So we are hoping he can talk to someone and see if he can get the post changed or more info about us going.. It makes us nervous.. I hate the whole hurry and wait mentality.. 😭😖
