Camp Casey, Korea
The 1/15th Field Artillery (FA) is the most forward deployed Direct Support Cannon Battalion in the United States Army. The 1/15th FA stands ready at all times to defend the Republic of Korea with deadly rains of 155mm "steel on target" should the communist North attempt to strike South.

It is the 1/15th's heritage to defend with their lives, in a foreign nation, a principle that all Americans hold dear -- Freedom for all! They train on the land they will fight on and are always prepared to put their training to use.
The 1/15th is the Guns Battalion, and their mark on any battle will be made with accurate and rapid strikes of massive volleys of deadly munitions! With their determination and constant vigilance, they are certain to be the "First to Fire!"
