U.S., South Korean troops prepare for joint military drill - UPI.com
UPI reports: "South Korea and United States troops are set to launch large-scale
joint military exercises on Wednesday.
Joint military drills involving the two countries occur annually in the
spring, but landing operations on a large scale have only occurred in
even-numbered years, including 2016, when 290,000 South Korean and
15,000 U.S. troops participated. The landing exercises will be reprised
this year, beginning Wednesday, because of rising tensions involving
North Korea, South Korean and U.S. military sources told the Japanese
newspaper Asahi Shinbum."
