Date of creation
On November 7, 1978, the founding ceremony of the ROK-US Combined Forces Command was held at the U.S. military base in Yongsan, Seoul.

The ROK-US Combined Forces Command is a military command that integrates and directs South Korean and U.S. troops stationed in South Korea, and is tasked with suppressing aggression against South Korea and jointly responding to the outbreak of war.

With the establishment of the ROK-US Combined Forces Command, South Korea's operational control, which had been exercised by the United Nations Command since the Korean War, was transferred to this command, and Korea officially regained its peacetime operational control in December 1994.
