  Li Yannian, who will turn 92 next month, is one of the representatives of the veterans.

He was also the winner of last year's "Republic Medal", when General Secretary Xi Jinping personally awarded him the medal.

  In October 1951, Li Yannian served as the instructor of the 7th Company of a battalion of the Volunteer Army.

The battalion was ordered to counterattack a lost high ground.

Li Yannian recalled that he discovered that the enemy would launch a round of artillery attacks every 3 minutes or so. After mastering this law, he and his comrades used this gap to slowly touch them.

After fierce fighting, "the trees and thatch that hit the mountain are gone," and the high ground was finally taken back.

In the following year, Li Yannian was awarded the title of "First Class Hero" by the Volunteer Army Headquarters, and he was honored with merits.

Revelation 2: People

  "The deepest root of the mighty power of war lies among the people." The War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea has let the world know that "now the Chinese people are organized and they are untouchable. If they are overthrown, it will be difficult to handle."

Learning from the past and knowing the future, China must insist on putting the people at the center, doing everything for the people, and relying on the people for everything.

Revelation 3: Development

Once such a serious situation occurs. Circumstances, the Chinese people will definitely give a head-on blow!"

China must maintain world peace and justice and promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.

  Xi Jinping said: "In today's world, any unilateralism, protectionism, and extreme egoism are totally unworkable! Any method of blackmailing, blocking, and extreme pressure is totally unworkable! Any way of doing things on its own and acting alone Any act of hegemony, hegemony, or bullying is totally unworkable! Not only is it totally unworkable, it is bound to be a dead end in the end!"
