SOLDIERS PERFORM STAGE PLAY ON CAMP CASEY TO HIGHLIGHT SUICIDE PREVENTION, OTHER KEY ISSUES

At the post theater on Camp Casey in Dongducheon Sept. 7, Warrior Country Soldiers watch a performance of “Open Door,” a stage play that helps train Soldiers in such crucial issues as suicide prevention, alcohol abuse, drunk driving, domestic violence and related matters. The 11-member cast was made up of Soldiers from the 2nd Infantry Division/ROK-U.S. Combined Division, and from the 1st Cavalry Division’s 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, which is serving a nine-month rotational tour in Korea as part of the Combined Division. The cast gave three performances of the play, starting shortly after 9 a.m. The play runs about one hour, 15 minutes. Early in the play, the main character, known as Spc. Jason Herrera, who’s been drinking, realizes he’ll be late for a date night with his wife Tiffany. That sets in motion a series of events that dramatize the play’s various themes. The play was staged in observance of Suicide Prevention Month, which is September. Among Warrior Country senior leaders who attended the play were Maj. Gen. Theodore “Ted” Martin, Commanding General of the Combined Division, who made remarks before the performance and gave commemorative coins to the performers after it finished. Also present were Col. Brandon D. Newton, Commander, U.S. Army Garrison Red Cloud and Area I, Lt. Col. Jon R. Gardner, Commander, U.S. Army Garrison Casey, and the garrison’s senior enlisted leader, Command Sgt. Maj. Michael L. Berry. Further performances of “Open Door” are scheduled for 9 a.m. Sept. 14 at the Camp Casey Theater, and, Sept. 20 and 27 at the post theater on Camp Red Cloud, starting at 9 a.m. – U.S. Army photo by Cpl.
