Highly praising the unit for conducting the lively revolutionary education and working class education in diverse forms and methods, he underlined the need to pay primary attention to the ideological education in order to prepare all the soldiers as servicepersons strong in thought and faith. It's very good that the unit which has produced many heroes in the past is now waging a dynamic movement to learn from the noble revolutionary spirit displayed by the heroes, he said, calling upon all of them to glorify every moment of their worthwhile military service with feats and thus become heroes of the new century.

Noting that the vitality of the movement of " day for soldiers" now brisk in the whole army is now being given fuller play with each passing day, he stressed that this is a laudable trait which can be displayed only by the KPA which has achieved the perfect unity between the officers and soldiers and between the superiors and the inferiors based on revolutionary comradeship.
