Sgt. Eric Schenck, 33, was killed in December when a truck hit into an ambulance and another vehicle that were pulled over to the side of a road following an earlier collision south of Seoul.

Schenck was driving a military vehicle when he was rear-ended on an interchange north of Camp Humphreys. After getting out of the vehicle to inspect the damage, the truck hit into the two vehicles, killing Schenck.

There are roughly 28,500 American troops currently stationed in South Korea.
