Infantry: South Korea Gets With The Program

 

Starting this month, the South Korean Army will extend its basic training from five to eight weeks. The training will also take place six days a week, instead of five. Thus the days of basic training are nearly doubled. The reason given for this is the perceived need to get ready for war with North Korea. In the last year, North Korea has attacked twice, once with torpedoes from a submarine (sinking a corvette and killing 46 sailors) and once with artillery rockets (killing two marines and two civilians and damaging a military base). War with North Korea now seems more likely than at any time since the 1960s.
