“grandfather was a soldier who fought against ghosts in the Anti Japanese war. Before he died, he left a legacy. At least one member of each generation in the family should go to serve the country in the army.” On July 29, Zhou Weidong, a retired soldier who lives in Tianhui Town, Jinniu District, Chengdu, told reporters that due to the influence of the family’s military practice and her yearning for military life since childhood, Zhou Yue, 18, who graduated from high school this year, resolutely chose to sign up for the army.

“I filled in the army and the army in the hard area online.” Zhou Yue said that she had heard grandparents and her father tell stories about the army since she was a child. “I know the hardships of the military camp, but I still yearn for it.

in 1938, Zhou Haiqing, who went to the front line to look for his elder brother to join the army, went from Chengdu to Chongqing to join the first company of the 5th industrial barracks of the 36th army of the national revolutionary army from Chengdu to Chongqing and became an anti Japanese soldier. In 1939, he took part in the battle against Japan. “The terrain around Kunlun Mountain is complex. We have to uproot every enemy stronghold.” Zhou Haiqing was interviewed by the cover news reporter of West China metropolis daily before his death. In that battle, a shell fell on his position. Due to the close distance, he was stunned by the shock wave and was hit by shrapnel. Several of his comrades in arms fell into a pool of blood. “The Chinese soldiers were killed and wounded seriously, but the Japanese soldiers were defeated in the end.” Finally, in this frontal attack against the Japanese army, the Chinese Army achieved a great victory, severely defeated the Japanese ace Fifth Division and gave a annihilation attack to its 21st brigade.

“I joined the army in December 1996 Zhou Weidong, 44, said that when he first went home to visit relatives, his grandfather, Zhou Haiqing, looked serious and patted him on the shoulder. “He told me to do a good job in the army, to obey the orders and arrangements, and not to be a deserter.”

looking at the military uniform photos of that year, Zhou Weidong said that he was very naughty at home, “after going to the military camp, not only did you exercise, but also sharpened your spirit.”

“when I returned from the army in 1999, my grandfather said that we should continue the tradition of the army.” He said that before his grandfather died, there should be at least one person from each generation of his family to serve the country in the army.

“since I was a child, I thought dad looked very handsome in military uniform.” Zhou Yue said that although he usually likes painting and playing the guitar, his personality is still like a boy. “I hope one day I can wear military uniform, be strong and strong, and protect the country, which is also in the implementation of the ancestors’ legacy.” “I registered online on July 27. I filled in the army and the army in hard areas. I’m waiting for physical examination and other procedures.”
