The WHO declared a pandemic on March 10, 2020 after COVID-19 had spread to the world. The virus has spread to 217 countries thus far, threatening the lives and health of people worldwide. The world is closely watching South Korea's quarantine measure--the so-called "K-quarantine" model--, which has been successful in maintaing a low level of infection and fatality rates, thanks to its preemptive and systematic quarantine system. The military has played a significant role in producing such valuable outcomes of the K-quarantine. Since the first confirmed case in the military on February 21, there have been 204 confirmed cases (as of November 18, 2020). This means that 32.2 people for every 100,000 population have been infected with COVID-19 in the military, which is equivalent to 57.5% of the civilian infection rate (55.9% for every 100,000 people). It can  be said that this outcome is the ahivement ofan effective quarantine system and the dedicated commitment of military medical staff despite the inevitable "3Cs": "close," "crowded," and "closed." In a national crisis, such as COVID-19, the ROK Ministry of National Defense has established a medical response system for nontraditional threats, focusing on the Armed Forces Medical Command (AFMC), the only military medical unit in South Korea. The AFMC has been playing a central role for medical support for the entire South Korean military by building the quarantine infrastructure and systematic response system. The following are the achievements of AFMC response to COVID-19.
