ARMED FORCES RECREATION CENTER:
Dragon Hill Lodge Unveils Stylish Upgrades

 

 

The Dragon Hill Lodge (DHL) in Seoul, Korea, is upgrading its facilities as part of a major multi-phase renovation project that will continue to present guests with the elegant style and Asian décor they have come to expect at this historic Armed Forces Recreation Center (AFRC).

“The DHL is the U.S. Military’s largest MWR operation in Asia, supporting 125,000-plus military, civilian, retirees and family members who are living in the United States Forces Korea and United States Forces Japan footprint,” said Dragon Hill Lodge General Manager Edward Fagan. “Located in the heart of Seoul, the DHL is strategically located in the center of Asia’s most vibrant, dynamic and fastest-growing capital city, and just minutes away from top sightseeing and culinary attractions. DHL’s Discover Seoul Program, which recommends activities and tours, provides help in discovering the beautiful, bustling and historic city of Seoul. Free U.S. military bus service is available from Seoul’s Incheon International Airport directly to Dragon Hill Lodge’s front door.”

The renovations, which are being completed in phases, began in September of 2013 with the renovation of the Soldier’s Tower. In total, Yeewon Interior Co., Ltd., renovated 95 rooms in the tower. The rooms now feature new furniture, carpet, drapery, bedding, artwork, lamps, mattresses, wall coverings and paint. In addition, existing bathtubs were replaced with new shower booths. ...

NGIS Innovates To Meet Demands of Navy’s Pivot to the Pacific

Navy Region Center SingaporeAs one of the furthest outposts of Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC), Navy Region Center Singapore (NRCS) was once a quiet place, far from the bustle of larger installations across the Navy. Much has changed, though, with the Navy’s Pivot to the Pacific, according to NRCS Navy Gateway, Inns & Suites (NGIS) General Manager Debra Couch.

“The Navy’s operational tempo has substantially increased with commands adding new billets, and new ships tasked to the area,” she explained. “Standing ready to serve this challenge is NRCS’s NGIS, a program that has recently undergone vast transformation to meet the demand of the Pivot. The NGIS priority-one mission is to accommodate temporary duty (TDY) Department of Defense (DoD) travelers, while delivering comfortable and welcoming accommodations with cost-saving room rates. Due to its unique area of responsibility, Singapore’s NGIS also provides accommodations for PCS families and littoral combat ship (LCS) crew swaps.”

In September, NRCS NGIS completed a $1.5 million renovation, a “Whole Room Concept” project, which recapitalized dining rooms, living rooms and bedrooms in 48 master suites, growing bed space from 109 pre-renovation beds to a post-renovation total of 306 beds. ...

BOWLING:
Fort Campbell Bowls a Strike with Upgrades

 

Fort Campbell Bowls a Strike with UpgradesThe Hooper Bowling Center at Fort Campbell, Ky., has benefitted from recent upgrades as part of a continuing multi-phase renovation project that is helping the quality-oflife facility stay at the top of its game. The facility upgrades, as well as the addition of new bowling programs and promotions, are tailored to give the entire Fort Campbell community a bowling center that bowlers will continue to want to come to for unit functions, children’s parties, leagues or just a fun game any time of the day.

“We are here to take care of the soldiers, and make everybody happy,” said FMWR Business Operations Division Chief Jody Petty. “And we really listen to and value their input, comments and suggestions in our overall plan as we improve the look and feel of the bowling center.”

As part of a master plan to provide a more inviting and visually appealing décor for bowlers, Fort Campbell worked with Brunswick Bowling to replace the old furniture, down in the pit area in and around the lanes. The project also included new flooring in the pit area, and new tables and chairs on the backside seating areas looking down on the pit area. ...
