Re: The Yellow Sea Battle - II
The US gave up peacetime operational control of the
ROK military on December 1, 1994.
The US 4-star general in Korea in peacetime now has
something called "combined delegated authority" over
planning functions and other items like combined
training of ROK & US forces.
