Camp Henry is a U.S. Army installation located some two hundred miles to the south of Seoul in Daegu City. The facility plays an administrative and support role for the surrounding U.S. Army camps in the area. It is also the headquarters of USAG Daegu, the garrison that oversees the four major military installations in and around Daegu City.
Hundreds of U.S. service members proudly represent American interests here at Camp Henry. Most will serve out their time and return to their family and friends back home without drama. Others, whether due to a simple mistake, a moment of weakness or simply because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time, will have their future and their freedoms thrown into doubt by a U.S. court martial.
- Your military career will be put at serious risk. Even if you manage to avoid a bad-conduct or dishonorable discharge, your crimes will almost certainly be published on your permanent record, all but ending your upward mobility in the military.
- Should you be convicted, your G.I. Benefits, healthcare and pension will be taken from you. Over the course of your life, this could be tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in benefits—gone in the blink of an eye.
- A dishonorable discharge and the loss of your benefits may be the least of your worries. Years if not decades in prison is common sentencing for many crimes under the UCMJ. Fines could leave you in terminal debt. You could be placed on a sex offender list for the rest of your life.

Camp Henry History and Court-Martial Activity
The site of Camp Henry has served as a military base for almost 100 years. Its original facilities were built by the Imperial Japanese Army in 1921, and were later acquired by the Republic of Korea at the end of World War II. American forces established a foothold here in 1950 during the Korean War. After the Korean War, the camp was renamed to Camp Henry in honor of Frederick Henry, a Medal of Honor recipient who fought in the Korean War.
Today, Camp Henry is home to USAG Daegu, as well as the 19th Sustainment Command and 403rd Army Field Support Brigade—Korea.
Camp Red Cloud, along with Camps Casey, Stanley, Hovey and others, are jointly referred to as Area I by U.S. Military serving in the region.
- Established: 1921 (Japanese Imperial Army) 1950
- Location: Daegu, South Korea
- Garrison: USAG Daegu, 19th Support Command, 403rd Army Field Support Brigade—Korea
Court-Martial Activity: Camp Henry, like many other military hubs in the region, has been the target of various sting operations and government crackdowns over the last decade. The government’s so-called wars against sexual assault and drugs has led to an uptick in related courts-martial. Fraud charges and violent crimes are also somewhat common throughout Camp Henry and South Korea in general.
