Kunsan National University Students Receive Wolf Pack Welcome

By Staff Sgt. Victoria H. Taylor

KUNSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- More than 30 Environmental Engineering Students from Kunsan National University visited Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea, Sept. 29, 2017 as a part of a Wolf Pack community outreach event.

To keep in line with their environmental curriculum, the students spent the majority of the morning learning and collaborating with Airmen assigned to the 8th Bioenvironmental flight, who designed hands-on activities that provided an educational foundation.

“The purpose of this visit was to educate those within the community about how we manage our health and environment programs to ensure the safety of our base populace,” said Maj. Ryan Jung, 8th MDOS Bioenvironmental flight commander. “It’s also a great way to show how we are making our best efforts to preserve the local environment.”

The group were also given a tour of the Water Treatment Facility that is located on the installation.

“Our Water Treatment Plant is the only start-to-finish facility in PACAF that is housed on base,” Jung said. “We take pride in that.”

Jung went on to say that by inviting the junior-level students, Airmen and civilians assigned to Kunsan were able to go more in-depth and give a first-hand look at what some of them could potentially do after graduation.

The students, most of whom have lived their lives in the local community surrounding the base, were able to tour of the installation and were educated on the entire mission of the Wolf Pack.

“Community engagements are vital to the Air Force,” Jung said. “They increase public awareness of our mission, bolster the Air Force’s reputation, and can potentially become a first multiplier to achieve our mission effectively in an overseas location.”
