General Baek Sun-yeop, who played an active part in the Korean War, died at the age of 100 at the age of 11 on the night of the 10th.

During the Korean War, General Baek commanded the decisive battles such as the Battle of Dabu-dong and the breakthrough of the 38th parallel, and was promoted to the first commander of the Korean army and served as the Minister of Transportation after the war.

General Baek will be seated at the National Daejeon Recruitment Center according to the current law.

In recent politics, there was a controversy over the argument that General Baek could not be buried in a national cemetery due to pro-Japanese behavior during the Japanese colonial rule.
