He looked round the room devoted to the unit's history.
Recollecting with deep emotion the history of the unit's development associated with the immortal exploits performed by President Kim Il Sung, he said that the unit could grow to be a powerful large combined unit with a-match-for-a hundred combined units and units thanks to the wise guidance and meticulous care of the President.
At the operation command room he learned about commanding officers' performance of their duties before setting forth tasks that would serve as guidelines in further increasing the unit's combat capability.
Going round the servicepersons' hall and other facilities for ideological education and entertainment, he expressed satisfaction over the fact that the unit has conducted an effective political work in a deep-going way after building a modern hall into a center for ideological and cultural education and all servicepersons are leading a cultural and emotional life to their satisfaction.

Its members staged chorus "The General Is the Great Brilliant Commander of Songun", trio jest, woman's solo and pangchang, poem and story-telling and other colorful numbers.
Through the performance replete with the revolutionary soldier spirit they powerfully demonstrated the militant spirit of the heroic Korean People's Army and the unshakable faith and will of its servicepersons to uphold the WPK's Songun leadership with loyalty and accomplish the revolutionary cause of Juche with arms.
