New senior member takes helm at UNCMAC


Republic of Korea Army Maj. Gen. Seo Hyung-Seok was appointed the senior member of the United Nations Command Military Armistice Commission Nov. 12, replacing Lt. Gen. Chun In-Bum, who assumed command of the ROK Special Warfare Command.

In addition to his duties as UNCMAC senior member, Seo will serve as the chief of staff of the Ground Component Command and the deputy chief of staff of the ROK-US Combined Forces Command.

Seo was commissioned in the 37th class of the Korea Military Academy and commanded the ROK 1st Infantry Division and the ROK Army Headquarters Education Training Director.  He most recently served as the chief of staff for Third ROK Army.

ROK military leaders have served as senior members of the UNC Military Armistice Commission since March 25, 1991, when U.S. Army Gen. Robert W. RisCassi appointed ROK Maj. Gen. Hwang Won-tak to the position.
