Should we deploy troops to it?” The commander points to a slide in which there is a heap of soil labeled “soil of the Four Major Rivers Restoration Project construction.”

The Ministry of Defense has agreed to the request by the Lee Myung-bak administration to deploy the ROK Army to assist with the construction for the Four Major Rivers Restoration Project. Observers are citing this as the first large-scale deployment of military labor for a government-led construction project since the time of military dictatorship.
