Republic Of Korea Army
The REPUBLIC OF KOREA ARMY (ROKA; Korean : 대한민국 육군; Hanja : 大韓民國 陸軍; Revised Romanization : Daehanminguk Yuk-gun), also known as the ROK ARMY, is the army of South Korea , responsible for ground-based warfare. It is the largest of the military branches of the South Korean armed forces with 495,000 members as of 2014. This size is maintained through conscription; South Korean men must complete 21 months of military service between the age of 18 and 35. The army will take the brunt of the personnel reduction planned as part of the Defense Reform 307. Associated with this personnel reduction would be a significant reduction in the ROK Army force structure, in particular decreasing the current force of 47 divisions (active duty/reserve) and 495,000 soldiers down to a force of about 38 divisions (active duty/reserve) and 400,000 soldiers
