Army Full of Spirit of Guarding Leader

Pyongyang, April 26 (KCNA) — “Let us defend the headquarters of the revolution headed by the great Comrade Kim Jong Il with our lives!” is a slogan reflecting all the Korean servicemen’s unswerving oath.

The slogan is based on their belief that they will always emerge victorious under the command of Kim Jong Il.

The servicemen, who regard guarding the leader as their life and soul, carry this slogan into practice.

It was proved by what eleven servicepersons belonging to Kim Ji Song unit of the Korean People’s Army did some time ago.

Their ship met an accident on a mission.

At this critical moment they took measures to protect portraits of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il hung in the cabin and badges bearing the image of the President before diving into the roaring sea.

Such spirit is displayed by officers and men of the three services of the KPA.

A pilot would have saved his life if he escaped from the burning plane as ordered by his commander. But he nosed his plane into the sea to protect the headquarters of revolution. Soldiers covered hand-grenades with their bodies before explosion to protect portraits of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il. And servicepersons plunged themselves into raging flames to protect trees bearing slogans written by anti-Japanese guerrillas without hesitation.

It is the servicepersons of the 73-year old KPA that unhesitatingly sacrifice their lives and youth for their supreme commander.
