  "Creating the soul of the army is the core task of our army's political work, and it must not be shaken at any time."

  The army follows the party, and the strong army first creates the soul.

Focusing on the in-depth study and implementation of Xi Jinping’s Thoughts on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era and Xi Jinping’s Thoughts on Strengthening the Army, the whole army has carried out the theme education of “Don’t forget the original aspiration and keep in mind the mission” and the theme education of “Inherit the red gene and take on the responsibility of strengthening the army”, “Maintain the core, Follow the command" theme education activities, reform and strengthen the army theme education activities, etc., guide officers and soldiers to strengthen the "four consciousnesses", strengthen the "four self-confidence", achieve "two maintenance", implement the military committee chairman responsibility system, and firmly listen to the party command , Dedicated to the ideological and political foundation of the cause of strengthening the army.

  ——Strengthen ideological guidance and firmly believe in belief.

  More than 40 years ago, the officers and soldiers of the "Three Great Service Company" were lighting kerosene lamps in the tunnels of the front line of national defense construction to learn the party’s innovative theory; more than 40 years later, the company continued to maintain its traditions and insisted on using Xi Jinping’s thinking on strengthening the army to build a company and train people. Advancing with the times and striving as new, he was awarded the honorary title of "Model Company for Learning and Practicing the Party's Innovative Theories" by the Central Military Commission and became a model of the times.

  In recent years, all levels of the military have adhered to higher standards, advanced in the forefront, implemented the requirements of learning, understanding, understanding, and practical implementation, continued to deepen the theoretical arms, built the foundation of belief, supplemented the calcium of the spirit, and stabilized the rudder of thought——

  Conscientiously organize the study of theoretical works such as "Xi Jinping on State Administration" and "Xi Jinping on Strengthening the Army and Rejuvenating the Army", follow up on the latest important speeches of President Xi, read the original works, learn the original text, understand the principles, learn constantly, learn new things, and learn deeply. Continuously increase political, ideological, and emotional recognition, and continuously increase trust and support.

In the past three years, 178 theoretical lectures and 302 symposiums have been held, and more than 34,700 grassroots officers and soldiers have directly written Theoretical guidance has allowed Xi Jinping's thought of strengthening the army to enter the hearts of officers and soldiers.

  The entire army has thoroughly and steadily promoted the popularization of the party's innovative theory and conducted a series of exploration and practice.

  —— A certain submarine detachment of the Southern Theater Navy organized the "Loyal Blue Whale Big Stage", and a certain aviation brigade of the Southern Theater Air Force promoted the "micro-class under the wing". It was changed into one person for everyone to talk, using small classrooms to tell big topics, and small examples to illustrate Big reason.

  —— The 77th Army selects outstanding political teachers to form a cloud team, establishes an online studio to prepare lessons together, and launches a series of cloud courses for learning the party’s innovative theory.

  —— A certain regiment of the Xinjiang Military Region uses modern media technology to create "five micro" platforms such as micro lecture halls and micro videos to make theoretical arms more grounded and more popular.

  Going deeper, solid, and minded, the party’s innovative theory gathers a strong centripetal force like a magnetic field. The broad masses of officers and soldiers build a high ground of belief and guarantee political firmness with theoretical sobriety.

  ——Strengthen the military spirit education and forge absolute loyalty.

  In 2015, 52 officers and soldiers of the "Red Company" joined China's first peacekeeping infantry battalion.

As far as Africa, they persist in consciously implementing the party's absolute leadership system over the people's army, strictly implementing the organizational life system, regularly reporting ideas to the party organization, and collectively swearing to the party flag.

  The party commands the gun. This is the unbreakable truth our party has drawn in the struggle between blood and fire.

As the birthplace of the branch built on the company, the officers and soldiers of the "Red Company" have a clear and firm understanding: it is the soul of the "party command gun" that distinguishes the People's Army from any army in ancient and modern China and foreign countries.

  The whole army has done a good job in the education of the military soul, carried out the study and education of the chairman responsibility system of the military committee, accurately grasped the political requirements and system regulations, and learned and used the "Learning Book of Adhering to the Party's Absolute Leadership over the Army" and "The Studying Book of the Chairman of the Military Commission Responsibility System". The party's absolute leadership of the people's army is implemented throughout the entire process of army building in all fields.

"Listen to President Xi's command, be responsible to President Xi, and reassure President Xi" has become a conscious action of the entire army.

  The whole army resolutely resists the undercurrent of the "color revolutions" of hostile forces, resolutely resists erroneous political views such as "de-partyization and depoliticization of the military" and "nationalization of the military", and resolutely resists distorting the history of our party and our military and discrediting revolutionary martyrs and heroes. Erroneous remarks, firmly grasp the initiative of ideological struggle.

  The whole army has firmly grasped the "four impures", "seven weakenings" and other issues, and thoroughly eliminated the influence of Guo Boxiong, Xu Caihou, Fang Fenghui, and Zhang Yang's toxicological effects, combined with internal party education and organizational life, and examined issues from the party spirit.

  The party's absolute leadership of the People's Army reaches the grassroots and officers and soldiers, and the officers and soldiers of the entire army have always been absolutely loyal, absolutely pure, and absolutely reliable.

  ——Practice the goal of strengthening the army and gather the strength of the strong army.

  "Hello, comrades!" "Hello, Chairman!"

  "Comrades have worked hard!" "Serve the people!"

  October 1, 2019, Chang'an Avenue, Beijing, the capital.

The soldiers and soldiers of the three armies who participated in the military parade celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China formed a majestic array and were honorably reviewed by President Xi.

President Xi greeted him cordially, and the officers and soldiers answered loudly.

  "Listen to the party's command! Can win battles! Good style!"

  The whole army regards in-depth study and implementation of the party's goal of strengthening the army in the new era as an important strategic task for ideological and political construction.

Party committees at all levels closely focus on the goal of strengthening the army to think about problems, make decisions, and focus on construction, and strive to improve strategic planning capabilities, real combat and practical capabilities, reform and innovation capabilities, scientific management capabilities, and vigorous implementation capabilities, and promote the goal of strengthening the military to take root at the grassroots level .

The majority of officers and soldiers keep in mind the goal of strengthening the army, strengthen their belief in strengthening the army, devote themselves to the practice of strengthening the army, and make contributions in the march of strengthening the army.

  In the deployment of defense, the officers and soldiers of the troops "go wherever the party asks, and set off with a backpack"; guarding the country and guarding the border, border soldiers guarding the rivers and mountains, not giving way; joint exercises and training, task forces sleep and sleep on the battlefield; defend rights at sea , The front-line officers and soldiers are ready to attack at any time; scientific research is tackling key problems, and military scientific and technological workers independently innovate and climb the peak...

  The whole army practiced the goal of a strong army as a model soldier, "the most beautiful new era revolutionary soldier" group, "the plateau guard frontier model camp", "strong army pioneer flying group", "aerospace report to the country model ground station", "scientific research as a battle pioneer"... The newcomers of the era of heavy military responsibilities have achieved fruitful results.

To fight for battle, gather the will and power to win

  "Warriors are fighters, combat teams are combat teams, and combat effectiveness is combat effectiveness."

  "It is the bounden duty of soldiers to fight and prepare for war."

  Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, President Xi has repeatedly emphasized that being able to fight and win battles is the key to a strong army. The People's Army will always be a combat team, and the vitality of the People's Army lies in its combat effectiveness.

On the battleship sailing through the waves, President Xi boarded the deck and entered the cabin to inspect the main battle positions one by one; on the Gobi desert where dripping water became ice, President Xi braved the severe cold and faced the new wind to gain in-depth understanding of the flight training situation; The chairman personally came to the front-line command, personally reviewed the exercise plan, selected troops to participate in the exercise, and guided the situation on the fly...

  Political work is going to war.

All levels of the armed forces integrate strong political work into all links of combat effectiveness building and integrate them into the entire process of military struggle preparation, providing strong guarantees for fighting and winning battles, and promoting the formation of a strong army to win and train troops to prepare for war.

  ——Focus on fundamental functions and firmly establish the awareness of combat teams.

  At present, the world's major changes unseen in a century are accelerating, and my country's security situation is becoming more unstable and uncertain.

How to strengthen the thinking of officers and soldiers to fight, lead troops to fight, and train troops to fight, shoulder the mission and tasks assigned by the party and the people in the new era, and explore answers through active actions at all levels.

  A stronger sense of worry.

During the execution of a major mission, a certain Rocket Army unit organized an expedition ceremony, and officers and soldiers submitted letters of determination to the battle, vowing that "It would be better to bury the loyal bones in the desert and never lose an inch of earth"; an aviation brigade of the Air Force in the Northern Theater organized the creation of the "Jiawu War" The melodrama, reflecting on the great harm of forgetting the war and slackening the war while looking back at history... In the past few years, the whole army has worked hard to get rid of the idea of ​​being a peace soldier and being a peace officer, and it has always been prepared.

  Crisis awareness tightened.

A certain navy detachment of the Eastern Theater Command carried out the "war starts tonight" situation and combat readiness education in response to the characteristics of the front line of military struggle preparations, and organized officers and soldiers to study the military, the enemy’s situation, and countermeasures; a certain frontier brigade of the Army in the northern theater repeatedly strengthened the "eyes" in the recruit education. The concept of "there is an opponent and the enemy is in the mind" guides everyone to be mentally prepared to go to the battlefield at any time from the beginning of the army...

  A sense of war was raised.

From daily training to holiday preparations; from the establishment of the East China Sea air defense identification zone to the development of the Diaoyu Islands rights struggle; from the normalized combat cruise in the South China Sea to the organization of actual military exercises in the Taiwan Strait... The whole army is not waiting for the urgency of time. We must step up the preparations for military struggle, defy strong enemies and daring to use swords, resolutely complete military struggle tasks, train troops in preparations, strengthen troops in the use of troops, and carry out combat readiness tasks and improve combat effectiveness in parallel.

  -Aiming at actual combat requirements, the combat effectiveness standard is clearly established.

  16 person-times won gold and silver in competitions at or above the group army, and 19 person-times broke the brigade record...This is the answer to the strong army handed over by the "hard-boned six companies" in the past three years.

  The "Hard-Bone Sixth Company" is a heroic company that is well-known throughout the country for its political ideology, military training, and combat style. Their practice of winning the army is a microcosm of the army's establishment of standards for combat effectiveness and training and preparation for war. .

  On January 18, 2020, Chairman Xi wrote back to all officers and soldiers of the "Hard-Bone Sixth Company", encouraging them to keep in mind the goal of strengthening the army, inherit the red gene, practice hard to win, carry forward the "hard-bone spirit" and build the company stronger.

  Since 2014, starting with the "combat power standard discussion", the whole army has resolutely implemented the Central Military Commission's decision and deployment, and carried out in-depth activities to clean up the peaceful accumulation of malpractices, and promote the establishment and fall of the only fundamental standard of combat effectiveness.

After educational discussions and rounds of in-depth investigations and thorough reforms, the officers and soldiers became more determined and conscious of their actions in preparing for war and seeking to win.

  The Central Military Commission concentrated on researching military affairs, researching wars, and researching warfare. All theaters actively explored the joint combat command and training system under the new system. To hit the threshold, the Rocket Army organized continuous launches of all types of missile bases, assaults with missiles from the entire brigade, the strategic support forces focused on forging a sharp fist of new combat forces, and the joint logistics support troops organized autonomous confrontation exercises to explore new paths for joint warfare, joint training, and joint protection. Armed police The army continues to improve its ability to deal with emergency response to terrorism, and military academies and scientific research units focus on actual combat, engage in teaching and training talents, and focus on innovation... The majority of officers and soldiers have transformed the political enthusiasm inspired by ideological and political education into training motivation, and comprehensively strengthened actual combat military training.

  In October 2020, in the Caucasus, a multinational force joint cluster participated in the climax of an actual military exercise.

Regarding the performance of the Chinese soldiers, a tank trainer of a motorized infantry brigade of the 58th Group Army of the Southern Military Region of Russia praised: "The Chinese soldiers have excellent military qualities. The Chinese army is a very effective force!"

  ——Strengthen the bloody courage and continue to stimulate the fighting spirit.

  "Dare to fight, dare to win, one is not afraid of hardship, and the other is not afraid of death. This is a vivid portrayal of the bloody courage of the people's army." Chairman Xi profoundly pointed out that generations of revolutionary soldiers have been overwhelmed by their heroic determination to death. The great spirit of all enemies and never be surrendered by them.

  In recent years, all levels of the military have focused on the characteristics of the fighting spirit in the new era, comprehensively using ideological education, combat training, environmental edification, and policy incentives to comprehensively forge the spirit of revolutionary soldiers in the new era.

The most widely circulated story in the barracks is the battle story, and the strongest battle song is sung the loudest.

  In the new training class, "Blue Helmet Warriors", "Special Warfare Pioneers", and "Female Leading Soldiers" and other heroes and model representatives in training and preparation, approached the recruits and new students to share glory, share missions, tell battle stories, show bloody responsibility, and serve from the beginning of the military. Initially stimulated the passion for training hard and making achievements on the battlefield.

  In the field training, the brigade of the "Wang Jie Class" carried out activities such as "Three Letters and One Book", joint training and education, and promoted the cultivation of the spirit of "Two Not Fear" to the depths. The post-90s and post-00s officers and soldiers started from actual combat needs. It is difficult to beat and temper hard, practice hard, dare to overcome all difficulties, and dare to overwhelm all enemies.

  For long-sea training, a certain destroyer detachment of the Northern Theater Navy relies on the ship network system to organically embed ideological and political education in the process of actual military exercises. Everyone talks about missions online, practices and wins offline, and accelerates the improvement of actual combat capabilities.

  Bloody, triumphant blade.

Through the smoke of history, our army used "less steel and more gas" to overcome "more steel and less gas." Nowadays, there are more steel, more gas, and harder bones. They are confident and capable of defeating all enemies who come in. Safeguard national sovereignty, security, and development interests.

  "The nature of our people's army can never be changed, the traditions of the old Red Army can never be lost, and the political nature of hard work can never be changed."

  "We must carry forward the revolutionary spirit cultivated by our party and our army in long-term practice, and always maintain the vigor, revolutionary enthusiasm, and desperate spirit of the revolutionary war period."

  Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Chairman Xi has inspected the army, walked into the Military History Museum and the Honor Room, and repeatedly urged that the red gene be passed on from generation to generation.

  The whole army insists on inheriting the red gene as a strategic task and basic project for the political building of the new era, making good use of red resources, educating people from history, inheriting and carrying forward the fine traditions of our party and our army, and ensuring the continuity of our army’s bloodline and foundation. The advantage is forever.

  "I don't believe that there are unfinished tasks, I don't believe there are difficulties that cannot be overcome, and I don't believe there are enemies that cannot be overcome!" Not long ago, on the eve of a training mission, the officers and soldiers of "Yang Gensilian" lined up in front of the sculpture of the old company commander. The heroic declaration of "three disbelieves" was shouted in unison.
