Go A-ra appointed as Air Force ambassador
Actress Go A-ra has been appointed as the ambassador for the Korean Air Force.
Korean Air Force Chief of Staff Jeong Kyeong-doo handed the appointment letter to the actress, who attended the ceremony Monday morning donning an Air Force uniform.
During her one-year tenure as ambassador, Go will participate in official events of the Air Force as well as in recruiting and promotional campaigns. Her predecessors include comedian Kim Byung-man and announcer Jang Ye-won.
“Go’s resume and image stand for four essential values that the Air Force encourages our soldiers to pursue: challenge, professionalism, sacrifice and teamwork,” an Air Force official said. “We anticipate Go’s appointment will get us closer to the public.”
Go’s father is a sergeant major with 30 years of service in the Air Force.
“I am happy to have the opportunity to build such a special relationship with the Air Force, the group I have always admired,” the actress said.
