Capital Defense Command

Capital Defense Command (formerly the Capital Garrison Command) includes select army troops whose active duty component, really more a countercoup force than a defensive force, was a little less than a division in 1990, organized into three separate security groups or regiments. They are assigned to defend the Blue House (the presidential residence), major government and Ministry of National Defense buildings, and Kimp'o International Airport. The wartime strength of the Capital Defense Command comes from multiple division reserves, which would be mobilized during a conflict. The Capital Defense Command also is responsible for peacetime training of all Seoul area reserves.

The 6th Marine Brigade (-) on Kanghwa Island is part of Capitol Defense Command and garrisons five northwestern islands adjacent to North Korea in the Western Sea.
