Pyongyang, November 27 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, inspected KPA unit 638 honored with the title of O Jung Hup-led 7th Regiment. After acquainting himself with the unit's performance of duty, he watched the training of its servicepersons in the military lecture rooms. He set forth tasks to be fulfilled to increase the unit's combat capability in every way, expressing his satisfaction over the fact that the unit has successfully built a modern drill ground to suit the content and nature of training and creditably carried out its training program.
He learnt about how the political work is conducted at the unit, going round the servicepersons' hall, a library and other entertainment and educational facilities.
Praising the unit for having displayed a variety of educational materials at the above-said establishments and conducted political and ideological education to suit soldiers' level of education, preparedness and mentality, he urged the unit to train all its servicepersons as vanguard fighters of the revolution firmly equipped with a high level of revolutionary consciousness and working class awareness so that they may become young heroes in the era of Songun who ardently love the country and readily dedicate their youth and lives to it like hero Ri Su Bok.
Making the rounds of a mess hall, a kitchen, a non-staple food store, a food processing room and other supply service facilities, he was greatly pleased to learn that the unit has provided its servicepersons with good living conditions.
He highly appreciated the successes made by the unit in the past, noting that it is a model not only in the military and political training but in all other aspects including supply service, soldiers' culture and morality and its management.
All units have brought about signal turn in the supply service, greatly contributing to increasing their combat capability, he said, adding that the reality today proves in practice the validity of President Kim Il Sung's instruction that supply service precisely means a political work.
