ABSTRACT

South Korean men are joined the army to perform the duties of defense in their early 20s. Most of the people are back to society in serving the sacred duty of defense, but some of those die in military barracks so that this kind of deaths is a huge pain in the family. Moreover, the causes of deaths manipulated and distorted of the truth have been being made a lot more clear among those killed by the military. Those who have died in the military for 25 years are a total of 10,970 people 1980 to 2005 and 4,088 of the people have been dealt with as a suicide, amounting to 37.2%. These figures are saying that an annual average of 439 young people will lose their lives in the military. In other words, there was a massive loss of lives of a battalion every year.Rescently, the number of deaths in military is reduced, but the suicide rate is increasing by far. Especially, while traffic accidents greatly are reduced in the military, the environment they can't help but commit suicide is not changed at all by the military statement. In addition, in proportion to increasing of these suicide rate, suspicious military deaths go on growing as expected. Therefore, this study has come up with devices to reduce occurrence rate of suspicious deaths looking around about situation of outbreak through the whole picture of the incident of Presidential Truth Commission on Suspicious Deaths investigating mysterious deaths of soldiers.
