YouTube Previews Military Life in Korea

By Anonymous

The U.S. Army's Installation Management Command (IMCOM)-Korea region has turned to YouTube as a supplement to its official Web site. Posts on the social networking site offer newcomers to the area and personnel sponsoring new arrivals easy access to a comprehensive library of videos showcasing life and work in Korea. YouTube features two "Welcome to Korea" videos, one aimed at soldiers and the other at civilian employees, as well as other informative video content. IMCOM-Korea officials say the command needs to embrace Web technologies such as YouTube to provide timely, relevant information about Korea as military families turn to social networking sites for information about their next assignment and relocation.

Anyone interested in viewing the online information can go to www.youtube.com and search "IMCOM Korea." Because social networking is prohibited on some U.S. Defense Department networks, the Army encourages interested parties to visit the site on commercial or other nonDefense Department networks.
