Description
October 1, 1977, marks the 29th anniversary of founding of the Republic of Korea Armed Forces.

Our armed forces, founded simultaneously with the establishment of our government on August 15. 1948, for the purpose of thwarting the communist plot of expansion, fought the Communist aggressors successfully in the Korean War that was provoked by the Communists in the north of Korea on June 25, 1950, for the defense of our fatherland and free democracy. They also took part in the Vietnam War as a voluntary crusader of world peace, and heightened our national glory and pride by scoring brilliant combat records.

All the members of our armed forces are ever ready to defend the country against aggression, united firmly with their strength, courage and loyalty, at constantly threatening the peace and stability in the Southeast Asian region, with the north Korean Communists keeping a particularly vigilant eye on another occasion for invading our republic.

The Ministry of Communications, on this occasion of observing our 29th Armed Forces Day, issues a commemorative postage stamp in the hope that our armed forces will become completely self-dependent through the positive bolstering of defense industry, at the same time publicizing the majestic image and glory of our invincible armed forces both at home and abroad.
