- We observe the barrack rules that we made!
- Hopes to enhance the life in barracks as airmen make and keep their own rules.
“Because all the members of a barrack part took in making their own rules, we believe that they will be carefully observed. The major take away here was not the contest itself, but the fact that airmen were able to understand each other by communicating among themselves on their thoughts and troubles.”
Above is the remarks by Sergeant Lee, Bum-hee (Airman Class of 720), the team leader of 3rd barrack, Intel-Communication Squadron at the 8th Fighter Wing that won the ‘Barrack Constitution Establishment Contest’ hosted by ROKAF HQ’s Office of Judge Advocate.
The Office of Judge Advocate at the ROKAF HQ (Director Col Baek) has organized the ‘Barrack Constitution Establishment Contest’ to enhance the life in barrack with voluntary participation of airmen.
About 240 teams participated from various ROKAF units, and through two vigorous preliminary evaluations 10 items were selected. The Office of Judge Advocate conducted a vote at the HQ lobby to decide on the best project. Thus, they selected single 1st place team, 2 second place teams, and 20 third place teams based 50% on the judge evaluation and the rest on the vote.
The 3rd barrack at the Intel-Communication squadron from the 8th FW who won the honor of the 1st place, received praises from the judges for utilizing simple drawings that neatly laid out the rules to be observed at the barrack.
Chief of the Office of the Judge Advocate, Lt Col Jeon (Judge Advocate Class of 20) said, “Barrack is a place where airmen spend most of their time, and the smallest component that makes up the entire military life. We expect to lower the occurrence of bullying, harsh punishments, and other problems while enhancing the life quality at barracks with the process of creating rules and regulations among the members of each respective communities.”
Meanwhile, the 10 projects that were selected will be displayed at other subordinate units for all the airmen to see.
