MEMORANDUM FOR PTMS&S, PROFIS COORDINATOR AND SCHEDULED PROFIS SOLDIERS SUBJECT: PROFIS Personnel Rotation to 16th Medical Logistics Battalion, Korea 1. Your unit is scheduled to send PROFIS Soldiers to the 16th MEDLOG BN for the August 2005 PROFIS rotation. The purpose of this memorandum is to clarify all specific requirements so Soldiers arrive into the Republic of Korea at the proper location, with all the required equipment and documentation. Point of contact information is provided if the Soldier requires additional assistance or guidance at any time after their notification. A copy of each PROFIS Soldier’s flight itinerary must be provided to 2LT Frutchey, S-1 OIC, 16th MEDLOG BN NLT 2 weeks prior to arrival, which will allow my staff to appropriately plan for their arrival and coordinate accommodations. Please send your itineraries to the following email address: email@example.com. PROFIS Soldiers are to schedule their flights with an arrival into Incheon International Airport for the first day of the scheduled rotation (22 August 2005) and their departure out of Incheon International Airport on the last day (30 August 2005). Take into account the additional day that is gained when returning to CONUS. We are 14 hours ahead of CONUS Eastern Time Zone. 2. As Soldiers arrive at the Incheon International Airport, they will report to the USO and Joint Reception Center (JRC) located on the 1st floor. The USO can be seen upon exiting from customs and proceeding to your extreme right. The USO counter is located on the 1st floor by the last airport entrance/exit door. A JRC booth will be established in the same area for the exercise. PROFIS soldiers should check in with both USO and JRC. Soldiers arriving between 21-23 August will be met by an 18 MEDCOM representative, who will assist them in finding the correct transportation. The Soldiers will take the next scheduled shuttle bus to Yongsan as directed by JRC personnel. This bus will drop PROFIS Soldiers off at the JRC Compound on Yongsan Army Garrison in Seoul. Personnel from JRC will in process PROFIS Soldiers at the compound and provide follow on instructions, to include unit of assignment, lodging, transportation, country information, SOFA information, and other important information that will assist the PROFIS Soldier. PROFIS Soldiers must clearly tell the JRC personnel that they are PROFIS and belong to the unit indicated on Enclosure 1. Should the JRC ask the PROFIS Soldier about their TPFD number, they need to clearly state they are not on the TPFD and refer them to the 18th MEDCOM representative. PROFIS personnel will only be receiving 75% per diem on the first and last days of their tour. Lodging will be 1
EAMC-MSO-S1 SUBJECT: PROFIS Personnel Rotation to 16th Medical Logistics Battalion, Korea provided by the JRC and the PROFIS Soldier’s unit here in Korea; they should not take it upon themselves to find lodging elsewhere as they will not be reimbursed. Following this in processing, a representative from B/16 MEDLOG BN will assist in linking the PROFIS Soldier up with their individual companies. PROFIS Soldiers will be assigned by company to the paragraph and line number found on our MTOE, which will be delineated in Enclosure 1. 3. A little about where PROFIS Soldiers are headed: The 16th MEDLOG Battalion Headquarters and Alpha Company is located on Camp Carroll, which is a small military community located 200 miles south of Seoul. The installation is well equipped with many of the conveniences of a small community. A small PX, clothing sales, commissary, food court, full facility gym and swimming pool are located on post. Soldiers are reminded that this is Korea and not the United States, so they have to be flexible and not expect the conditions to be exactly the same. Additionally, we have B Co, 16th MEDLOG BN forward deployed in Yongsan, Seoul, Korea. The military community in Seoul has all that Camp Carroll does but more. The Yongsan Garrison in Seoul is one of the larger military communities in the Pacific and rivals many installations found in the United States. However, due to a heightened threat on the Korean peninsula, there are some Force Protection measures in place, which PROFIS Soldiers must follow. Soldiers are required to utilize the buddy system whenever leaving post, and must abide by the peninsula-wide curfew (2400-0500 Monday -Thursday, 0100-0500 Friday - Sunday and holidays). Wear of the military uniform off post should be limited as much as possible to avoid potential targeting of U.S. Soldiers. In addition, PROFIS Soldiers are not authorized to drink while on the peninsula. It is vital that PROFIS Soldiers realize the threat in Korea is very real and they must practice good operational security whenever interacting with the local population. 4. The home station unit is to ensure that PROFIS personnel report to Korea with the appropriate equipment, clothing, and documents. The Army Physical Training uniform (winter/summer) is required for Morning PT and Battalion Runs. Complete MOPP gear and Mask is required. Enclosed with this memorandum is a CTA 50/OCIE summer packing list. These items must be issued and accompany each Soldier. If Soldiers are missing any CTA-50 or MOPP equipment the home-station PROFIS coordinators must fax or digitally send this information ASAP to HQ, 16th MEDLOG BN, ATTN: BN S-1. Additionally, Soldiers must bring a copy of their training records. This will include: current APFT, current weapons qualification, and current CTT record. We maintain a competency on each PROFIS Soldier, and this information is vital to complete this packet. Soldiers that arrive without these records will be required to contact their Unit CO/1SG and have all records faxed to the 16th MEDLOG BN. 5. The PROFIS Soldiers first day is dedicated to inprocessing at their unit. This includes a welcome briefing from the Battalion Commander and CSM for those Soldiers assigned to HHD/A CO at Camp Carroll. PROFIS Soldiers assigned to B CO, 16th MEDLOG (Seoul) will receive their in-brief from the B CO Commander or First Sergeant.
