When 9/11 came, South Korea had already been taking terrorism far more seriously than the United States ever did. The Detachment wanted to go to war but found themselves stuck in South Korea. “Me and the commander came up with the international play of sending the Koreans. SOCKOR took it to ROK Special Forces who went to government and it got approved,” Detachment Sergeant Major Jack Hagan said. The idea was that Det K would accompany Korean Special Forces into Iraq when the invasion kicked off, but 1st Special Forces Group stole that job away from them and Tae Kim was the only Det K liaison permitted to go. “They took a company of engineers, company of medics, and one platoon of 707. Later teams from other brigades were mixed,” Hagan said.
