Brilliant Guards Units of KPA​


Pyongyang, July 22 (KCNA) -- At the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum in the DPRK, there is a hall of guards units, which was arranged under the direct initiative and careful guidance of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un.

In the period of the Fatherland Liberation War the guards units of the Korean People's Army (KPA) performed brilliant feats in every battle with the U.S. imperialist aggressors and brought about July 27 of victory under the guidance of President Kim Il Sung, the invincible and iron-willed commander.

Among them are the Seoul Guards 3rd Infantry Division, Seoul Kim Chaek Guards 4th Infantry Division and the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division, which won fame by liberating Seoul in three days after the start of the war and encircling and annihilating "undefeated divisions" and generals of the U.S. imperialists in such operations and battles as the Osan combat and the operations to liberate Taejon.

Those units had demonstrated the might of the heroic KPA from the first day of the war by advancing at an astonishing speed on the order of counteroffensive issued by Kim Il Sung.

The Guards 6th Infantry Division, too, performed great feats in battles to liberate the southern half of Korea.

The Guards 18th Infantry Regiment ran more than 40 km overnight to make a big contribution to perfecting the siege for the operations to liberate Taejon.

The Guards Second Torpedo-boat Flotilla is also a pride for the KPA Navy. The flotilla consisting of four torpedo-boats sank the U.S. heavy cruiser Baltimore, called a "moving island on the sea", and destroyed a light cruiser during the first stage of the war.

The Guards Hero Kim Ji Sang 56th Chaser Regiment of the KPA air force shot down many enemy aircraft and beat enemy group targets to reliably cover the KPA's ground operations by making the most of the Juche-oriented war tactics taught by the President during the war.

The colors of the Guards 19th Anti-aircraft Artillery Regiment and the Guards 23rd Anti-aircraft Artillery Regiment show the proud feats they made in battles to defend the sky of the country.

When visiting the hall of guards units newly arranged at the museum in Feb. Juche 104 (2015) to look round the guards colors and data on the guards units, Kim Jong Un said that the title of guards unit, instituted during the war, was the highest commendation and the greatest honor bestowed by the President with his wish that the remarkable merits of the heroic soldiers would go down in history and this proud tradition of struggle would be glorified through generations.
