By USFK Public Affairs

“On behalf of United States Forces Korea, I offer our heartfelt condolences and sympathy to General Paik’s family and friends following his death last night,” said Gen. Robert B. “Abe” Abrams, United States Forces Korea Commander. “General Paik would often visit USFK and speak with U.S. and ROK service members about the Korean War and his career as a Soldier. He made an incredible contribution shaping the U.S. and ROK alliance into what it is today. From his time serving in the Korean War to becoming South Korea’s first four-star General to serving as the ROK Army Chief of Staff, General Paik is a hero and national treasure who will be truly missed.”
