    OSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea — The 7th Air Force will initiate Exercise Key Resolve 15 here March 2.

    Key Resolve is an annual combined and joint command post exercise that employs U.S. military personnel from the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the United States, as well as ROK air force.

    In addition, more than 600 U.S. and coalition partners will augment resident alliance forces.

    Active duty, guard and reserve service members working alongside ROKAF personnel enhance the capacity of the ROK-U.S. Alliance to deter aggression and to reinforce the United States' commitment to the Republic of Korea.

    “This is a critical exercise to train alongside our ROK and United Nations Sending State partners. It is important to maintain our high level of proficiency on key tasks while exercising different scenarios,” said Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, United Nations Command, Combined Forces Command, and U.S. Forces Korea commander. “Exercising our multinational force is an important component of readiness and is fundamental to sustaining and strengthening the alliance.”

    The United Nations Command (UNC) notified the North Korean military of the exercise dates and that Key Resolve is a regularly-scheduled annual ROK-U.S. combined exercise that is not related to current events on the Korean peninsula.

    Training exercises such as Key Resolve highlight the longstanding partnership and enduring friendship between UNC sending state nations, to help ensure peace and security on the peninsula, and reaffirm the U.S. commitment to the region.
