In November 2005 Camp Colbern closed and preperations were made to transfer ownership of the facility to the Republic of Korea. Mention of this shift was made in US-ROK Land Partnership Plan in 2002, when the expected date of closure was 2008.
Camp Colbern was a small camp south of the capital, near K-16, an army airfield. Immediately prior to its closure Camp Colbern was home to the 304th Signal Battalion, 1st Signal Brigade. The Battalion's mission was to provide a combat-ready, forward-deployed tactical signal battalion in support of the United Nations Command, Combined Forces Command, USFK and Eighth U.S. Army commanders during conditions of armistice and crisis.
