5th Infantry Division
The 5th Infantry Division is believed to have been originally activated as the 5th Brigade in 1948 though the Korean Insititute of Military History does include information on where or when it may have been activated, the individual who commanded it or the what regiments it was comprised of. The KIMH does indicate that the 5th Division was activated on May 12, 1949 and was commanded by Brig. General Song Ho Song. The Division was located at Kwangju and consisted of the 15th and 20th Regiments.
