Sanatoriums for veterans of the Korean War have been built in most North Korean provinces. Each sanatorium, nearly identical in construction, reportedly has a total floor space of several thousand square meters, service facilities like physical therapy, gymnasiums, barber shops, fishing, and other activities.
According to KCNA, "Unable to repress the excitement at the grateful benevolence of the Workers' Party of Korea, which is glorifying the lives of the war veterans, [veterans] are fully resolved to repay the benevolence by implanting the spirit of defending the leader unto death and the spirit of defending the country in the 1950s in the minds of the rising generation."
