Pyongyang, November 20 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, inspected KPA Unit 338. After receiving a salute from servicepersons of the unit, he acquainted himself with its performance of duty.
Going round a military lecture room, he was satisfied to learn that it has successfully built the lecture room and made an effective use of it to firmly equip its commanding officers and men with the WPK's Juche-oriented war methods. He set forth tasks to be fulfilled to further increase its combat capability. Looking round the servicepersons' hall, a library, a video recording and wire broadcasting room and other entertainment and educational facilities, he praised the unit for having in place sufficient means of various kinds necessary for the education of soldiers and widely using them and conducting effective revolutionary education and working class education on the basis of facts.
The servicepersons should become young heroes in the era of Songun who ardently love the country and unhesitatingly dedicate their youth and lives to the fight for the country like Hero Ri Su Bok, he noted, adding that to this end it is necessary to conduct the political and ideological education in a more dynamic manner.
It is very good that the unit has built a good library and effectively operated it to make all servicepersons avid readers, he noted, underscoring the need to thoroughly establish the revolutionary habit of reading.
Making the rounds of a mess hall, a kitchen, a daily provision store and other supply service facilities, he learned about the soldiers' living and highly appreciated their tenacious life style.
Informed that the sub-units of the unit have reaped a high harvest by successfully doing the sideline farming, he pointed out that all units have made signal progress in the sideline job in recent years. This laudable change represents a feat which can be performed only by the KPA which has rendered its services for the prosperity and development of the country, upholding the Party by the sweat of its brow with ardent patriotism. He had a photo session with the servicepersons of the unit.
He was accompanied by KPA Generals Ri Myong Su and Pak Jae Gyong and Hwang Pyong So, vice department director of the Central Committee of the WPK.
