They were conducting wargames in South Korea this week. They are definetly stepping up their presence there. North Korea did not like it.
YONGSAN GARRISON, South Korea — The USS Kitty Hawk, the U.S. Navy’s oldest active ship, pulled into port at Pusan on Monday to participate in a major
exercise starting Sunday, officials said.
The aircraft carrier, which began a spring cruise Feb. 18, will be part of Foal Eagle/RSOI, said Maj. Carol Schmidt, U.S. Forces Korea spokeswoman.
It’s the first time since October 2000 the Kitty Hawk has taken part in the exercises.
Foal Eagle/RSOI, involving both U.S. and South Korean servicemembers, is a computer war simulation that includes troops maneuvering in the field.
Command officials would not comment on the part the aircraft carrier will play in the exercise.
