In November 2005 Camp Colbern closed and preperations were made to transfer ownership of the facility to the Republic of Korea. Mention of this shift was made in US-ROK Land Partnership Plan in 2002, when the expected date of closure was 2008.
Camp Colbern was a small camp south of the capital, near K-16, an army airfield. Immediately prior to its closure Camp Colbern was home to the 304th Signal Battalion, 1st Signal Brigade. The Battalion's mission was to provide a combat-ready, forward-deployed tactical signal battalion in support of the United Nations Command, Combined Forces Command, USFK and Eighth U.S. Army commanders during the Korean War, the Armistice and still remain providing communications in Korea.
