One of 1st Sgt. Park GyungAh's official duties in UNIFIL's South Korean contingent is to smash through 15 slabs of marble, using just her hands. Park is the operations battalion exercise and training non-commissioned office for the contingent. In Lebanon, Park says many of her duties involve organizing the training for the battalion's nearly 130 personnel, but she also has operational support duties that take her into the field.The next contingent to be rotated to Lebanon will have yet more women, who will play an active role in operations, the commander said.
