DPRK Supreme Commander and Soldiers
Kim Jong Un, Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, spares nothing for soldiers, saying that they are his dear sons and daughters who establish the ties of blood with him and his comrades and comrades-in-arms who share the same intention and destiny with him.

He inspected an island-defending unit of the KPA at the hottest spot in the southwest front in August Juche 101 (2012). Officials tried to prevent him from going there as the sea route to the island was so dangerous. But he brushed off their persuasion and went there aboard a small 27-hp wooden ship, noting that he should go where the soldiers are even if the place is very dangerous and that the Supreme Commander exists for them.

After going round various places of the unit, he said to the accompanying officials that they should take good care of the soldiers lest they should feel hankering for the land and, in particular, pay close attention to ensuring that they always lead optimistic and militant life in military service. And he took measures to solve the problems for the supply of electric power, fresh water and firewood, specifying the ways to solving the problem of electricity for the soldiers’ leisure activities by means of wind power, solar energy and biogas.

During his another visit to the unit, he made the rounds of its barrack, dining hall, wash-cum-bath room, greenhouse and animal shed to take parental care of their living.

In mid-October Juche 102 (2013), he was informed of a report that some sailors of the KPA Navy died a heroic death while performing their combat duty. He took steps to find out all their corpses and hold a grand funeral. And he visited their tomb to lay a flower before it and paid a tribute to the memory of the fallen soldiers. Looking round their tombstone one by one, he could hardly repress his feeling of bitterness, saying that their photos inscribed on the stone have been well depicted and that they seemed to get up to see him in delight.

After going round the tomb for a while, he said: There must be the owner of a grave. I will become the owner of their tomb. All of them are my comrades-in-arms and comrades.

Thanks to his parental affection and deep trust, the KPA is building up into the vanguard of defending the leader unto death and the invincible armed force.

Today the Korean people significantly celebrate the 7th anniversary of his appointment as the Supreme Commander of the KPA.
