United States Army Pacific

The United States Army Pacific (USARPAC) is an Army Service Component Command (ASCC)[3] of the United States Army and is the army component unit of the United States Indo-Pacific Command. The main areas that this command has jurisdiction in include Hawaii, Alaska, the Pacific Ocean, South Korea and Japan. It also performs missions in Southeast Asia, in the countries stretching from the Philippines all the way to Bangladesh and India. United States Forces Korea (USFK) has operational command and control on US Forces in Korea since January 2012, and USARPAC headquarters became its Army Component Command at the same date.[4]

This became the Johnston Atoll Chemical Agent Disposal System, which was finally deactivated in 2001.
