During his visit to the unit, which was primarily made for him to check the military readiness posture for the Nuclear Security Summit 2012 and also to help improve the unit’s operations capability, Gen. Sherman checked the unit’s combat readiness in peacetime and wartime, and the overall Patriot missile power employment realities.

In particular, Commander Sherman and some commanding officers from the ROKAF ADAC discussed substantially not only all the matters necessary for strengthening the Korea-U.S. combined operations capabilities, but a technical support plan for safe equipment operations.

„The air defense artillery strength is such essential military power for a prompt counteraction against any hostile activity that the U.S force will help reinforce the military cooperation with that of S. Korea,“ Gen. Sherman emphasized.
