Does the 528th sustainment brigade in Korea conduct airborne ops? I just recently came down on orders there. Just trying to figure out what I’m walking into before I arrive.

Think on it, the roads in S.Korea are set to be mined/blown/targeted by both Korea's, same for the entire transportation set up. They had to do some supply air drops during the Korean war, so it's possible they may still be prepared for that option.

It is not good practice to discuss military unit capabilities in an open forum; particularly forward units in places like Korea. I recommend you ask your sponsor through official email.

SFC Jack S The key phrase was "particularly forward units in places like Korea."

The CONUS training mission of the 82nd and 173rd are widely publicized, and sure, can be easily implied. Past events have already happened and are usually public knowledge as well. However, what units do and do not currently do in forward locations, are not necessarily publicized, not without Public Affairs Office approval. So discussing the operational capabilities of a current unit in a forward location is not good practice, because any unverified account holder from any foreign nation can gather such data to fill their information gaps. I prefer to make our potential enemies have to work for it :) That said, nothing stops a Veteran or Retiree from doing so. It's more of a "It would be nice" sort of thing.

That's why if the person asking the question IS an actual U.S. Servicemember, I refer them to ask such a question within official communication channels.

So, I haven’t recieved a sponsor yet. I literally just came down on orders last Thursday. I recieved an airborne AI email as well. I just wanted to be prepared, because I haven’t jumped in like 3 years. Mainly needing to know if I needed to start getting back in airborne shape. Which means alot more Running. Lol but I’ll reach out to my sponsor. Tym.

You're actually going to the 112th Signal Battalion detachment. 112th falls under 528, but the actual 528 is located at Bragg. You will be in a small detachment that is part of SOCKOR which is the TSOC for Korea. 112th has over 50 signal detachments all over the world. Yes, you will jump while you are there. You might even get to jump from a hot air balloon while you're there, too. MSG Quismundo was the Detachment NCOIC while I was in Okinawa, you could reach out to him on global and ask him.
As far as OPSEC, this is all publicly available knowledge. SOCOM puts out a fact book listing locations , makeup, and capabilities every year and MSG Quismundo is on Linkedin as the NCOIC.
