South Korea Military RecordsEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
The South Korean armed forces was a largely rudimentary force until the outbreak of the Korean War. It was heavily damaged by North Korean and Chinese attacks and in the beginning relied almost entirely on American support for weapons, ammunition, and technology. During South Korea's period of rapid growth, the military expanded accordingly, benefiting from several government-sponsored technology transfer projects and indigenous defense capability initiatives. Modernization efforts for the Republic of Korea (ROK) military have been in place since the 1980s.
