Songun Brilliant Commanders and 105th Tank Division

Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) -- August 25 is the Day of Songun in the DPRK.
    Leader Kim Jong Il began his Songun revolutionary leadership with the inspection of the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the Korean People's Army (KPA) on August 25, Juche 49 (1960).
    Inspecting the unit together with President Kim Il Sung that day, Kim Jong Il said:
    "Let Us Defend With Our Very Lives the Party Central Committee Headed by the Respected Comrade
Kim Il Sung!"–This Slogan Should Be Held Higher by the People's Army.
    It was early in December 2006 that he visited the unit for the 22nd time. At that time, Kim Jong Il called on the unit to always demonstrate its honor, noting that the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division had been a guards unit strong not only during the war but in the ideological aspect.
    Early in January 2010, the unit was honored to be inspected by Kim Jong Un, another Songun brilliant commander, together with Kim Jong Il.
    That day, Kim Jong Un personally drove the tank No. 951 at full speed and hit the target, which was a clear manifestation of his firm will to accomplish the revolutionary cause of Juche with the might of the Paektusan army.
    And he also visited the unit on the first day of the year 2012, shortly after the demise of leader Kim Jong Il. -0-
