The Soldiers’ primary mission at the festival was
to provide language support for the many foreign
visitors to the event.
The Boryeong Mud Festival was first launched
in July 1998 to promote the outstanding quality of
cosmetic products made from the local mud and to
support local tourism.
Since then the Mud Festival has grown in
popularity and attracts visitors from around the world.
In order to make foreign visitors’ vacation more
pleasant, Boryeong City has picked volunteers to
facilitate the event, including KATUSA and U.S. Soldiers and civilians dance to drum beats during the fest.

Upon arrival the Soldiers were stationed in
different locations around Daecheon Beach,
including the information center, administration
headquarters, mud-products sales shop, and so forth.
Duty hours were the same for all Soldiers, from
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with formation twice a day. Despite
the relaxed surroundings, all Soldiers were held to
the same standards as if at Camp Humphreys.
