“KSC worker; embodiment of ROK-US alliance, working alongside U.S. Soldiers for over half a century”
Story by Pfc. Jihun Jeong, 19th ESC Public Affairs
CAMP HENRY, Daegu, South Korea – The history of the Republic of Korea-US alliance dates back to more than half a century. Not many people remain employed by the Korean or U.S. governments who have been employed dating back to the inception of the alliance. However, in the offices of the Assistant Chief of Staff, Logistics, 19th Expeditionary Sustainment Command here, there’s an individual who has been part of the two nation’s joint journey for the majority of the way.
Man Tal Yu, Logistics Management Specialist, ACofS G4, first joined U.S. Army Garrison Daegu as a Korean National employee in 1968 when he was fresh out of high school. Now a 70 year old veteran in the field of Logistics Management, he is an unrelenting expert and a shrewd inspector for the supply and logistics operations of the subordinate command units under the 19th ESC.
As a Logistics Management Specialist, his main responsibilities include conducting inspections on the commands subordinate to the 19th ESC such as, the 25th transportation battalion and making sure the unit’s supply and logistics operations run smoothly and don’t violate any of the Army’s regulations.
Yu’s other duties include being a judge for the Supply Excellence Award Program where he performs an evaluation once a year to nominate a subordinate command within the 19th ESC that has performed exemplary in its supply operations and that unit then earns a chance to compete in an 8th army wide competition.
“One of the most fulfilling aspects of my job is when I get to better understand the US Army’s regulations of supply management,’ said Yu. “As a Korean and whose native language is not English, there can be difficulties in understanding the rules and regulations of another country’s Army.
“Even when you understand what the regulations are, it can be difficult to apply the terms and vocabulary to provide assistance and advice to subordinate commands,” Yu continued. “I feel a great sense of fulfillment and joy when I can overcome these challenges and help out the logistics operations of the 19th ESC.”
“You can easily say that there is no one better equipped with knowledge on supply inspections and regulations than Mr. Yu in all of USAG Daegu, if not throughout all of the U.S. Army bases in Korea,” said Pyong Chan Pae, a logistics procurement technician, also with the ACofS G4 and a colleague of Yu.
“He’s the foremost expert in the field of supply inspections and brings in a kind and warm personality to work every day,” said Pae. “I feel that there is a lot to learn from him and I hope to gain the same expertise he has in my work as well.”
A native of Daegu, Yu said that shortly after graduating from a commercial high school, here in Daegu, he saw an announcement for a civilian work position as a Korean National employee at USAG Daegu.
“Back in those days, students from a high school such as mine did not attend a university after high school, instead they found work right after high school graduation,” said Yu. “When I saw the announcement for the position, I thought it seemed interesting and decided to apply. Ever since then it has been my job and life, for all I can remember.”
Whenever asked about if he has plans to retire, Yu said that he plans to continue working for as long as he can, unless there are orders from a higher command to reduce staff or a layoff happens.
One of the most memorable recounts of his career is attending a 2-week long logistics training seminar at the Logistics Support Activity, in the continental United States, where he got to sharpen his knowledge and meet his peers who also work in logistics management.
Every year civilian employees, including Korean Nationals are evaluated for their work and are awarded a rating based on their performance. For 30 years, Mr. Yu has never missed receiving an outstanding performance rating and has been consistently recognized for his excellent work.
Brig. Gen. Michel M. Russell Sr., the commanding general for the 19th ESC, recently gave laudatory remarks toward Yu during the 2018 Command Inspection outbrief.
Russell praised Yu, not only for his outstanding work during the Fiscal Year 18 Command Inspection, where by the way, Yu received a commendable grade of 100% in every area inspected, but also because of the rarity and significance of individuals like Yu whose continuity and longevity in their work make the 19th ESC better and that, is highly valuable and difficult to find anywhere else in the Army, said Russell.
At the end of the day, Yu’s ongoing and outstanding career will be remembered as a lasting symbol of the ROK-U.S. alliance, regardless of what the color of his uniform may be.

The Daegaya Experience Festival was held at the Daegaya History Theme Park, Goryang. The festival also took place at other locations throughout Daegaya-eup, Goryeong-gun, Gyeongsangbuk-do, Apr 12 to 15. Goryeong is located 30 miles west of Daegu, and is a 45-minute bus ride from Camp walker. This festival gave all to participants the opportunity to experience the culture and traditions in the Gaya cultural sphere.
U.S. soldiers were invited to time-travel to the ancient kingdom of Daegaya, some 1,500 years back in time. Many soldiers and their families took part in this festival on Apr 14. They enjoyed the festival, despite rainy weather. It was a good opportunity, especially for the kids to experience the history and culture of Korea.

Camp Henry, South Korea – The U.S. Army Materiel Support Command – Korea, 19th Expeditionary Sustainment Command, hosted a relinquishment of responsibility ceremony where Command Sgt. Maj. Prentiss E. Hall III, the senior enlisted advisor of the MSC-K, and a native of Daisetta, Texas, relinquished his responsibilities as the unit’s senior enlisted advisor, April 12 at Kelly Field, Camp Walker, Daegu, Korea.
“This is the second in a series of three speeches that I will give about my battle buddy, Command Sgt. Maj. Prentiss E. Hall III,” said Col. Eric L. Jackson, Brigade Commander of the MSC-K, during his opening remarks at the relinquishment of responsibility ceremony. “Command Sgt. Maj. Hall has been a selfless servant-leader for our organization and has pushed his mind and body to give a hundred percent every day without fail.”
Hall assumed responsibility as the senior enlisted advisor of the MSC-K May 31, 2016, serving a total of 23 months as the unit’s top enlisted leader.
“When I came here two years ago, this Brigade was in the midst of a transition, and that transition continues to this day,” said Hall during his remarks in the relinquishment of responsibility ceremony. “Since my arrival, it seems we have been in a constant exercise mode, the largest of which was Operation Pacific Reach last year. We have shown over and over again we are the sustainment hub for Korea.”
While ending a 31-year career is hard for some, Hall remained stoic and hopeful for his unit and the Army.
“We are professionals, and I was never worried, because I know we got this,” said Hall. “Today I am relinquishing responsibility for this unit, although I will never relinquish my pride, and love I feel in my heart for all those with whom I have served.”
Following the relinquishment of responsibility ceremony, Hall’s retirement ceremony was hosted by the MSC-K, 19th ESC at the Evergreen Community Club, Camp Walker, Daegu.
During the ceremony, Hall was awarded the U.S. Army Legion of Merit medal, and received a certificate of retirement and a U.S. flag for his years of service to the nation.
“I reached my retention control point, but I got to tell you, this is the best thing that ever happened to my family and I,” said Hall. “I never expected to be a Command Sergeant Major, and I never expected to serve in the Army for over 30 years. Why am I here? It is not because of my good acts, but because the good acts of others.”
