Remember the glorious history and continue to write a new chapter of the strong army

  The history of the party has been magnificent for a century, and the march of strong army has been moving forward.

History is the best textbook.

  This is a team created by the Chinese Communist Party.

This is an armed force worthy of the trust of the party and the people.

  The People's Army has built immortal feats for the party and the people along the way. It is a strong pillar to defend the red country and national dignity, and a powerful force to maintain regional and world peace.

Entering the new era, the People’s Army resolutely fulfills the mission and tasks entrusted by the party and the people in accordance with the requirements of national security and development strategies, provides strategic support for consolidating the leadership of the Communist Party of China and the socialist system, and provides strategic support for safeguarding national sovereignty, unity, and territorial integrity. Provide strategic support for safeguarding the country’s overseas interests, and provide strategic support for promoting world peace and development.

  On July 1, 2021, Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, President of the State, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission, emphasized in the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China: Taking history as a mirror to create the future, we must accelerate the modernization of national defense and the military.

  Standing at a new starting point, looking back on the great journey, and feeling historical enlightenment, the People’s Army will continue to write a magnificent chapter worthy of the party and the people.

The party commands the guns to consolidate the foundation

——The party's absolute leadership over the army is the soul and lifeblood of our army

  On August 1, 1927, a shot was fired at the head of Nanchang City, which opened the curtain of our party's armed resistance against the Kuomintang reactionaries.

  The sound of gunshots at the head of Nanchang, like a flash of lightning that pierced the night sky, enabled the Chinese people to see the hope of revolution in the dark and the strength to rise in the face of adversity.

The Nanchang Uprising, together with the Autumn Harvest Uprising, the Guangzhou Uprising and the armed uprisings in many other regions, marked the beginning of the Chinese Communist Party's independent leadership of the revolutionary war and the creation of the People's Army, and ushered in a new era of the Chinese revolution.

  After more than 90 years of gunpowder wars and overcoming obstacles for more than 90 years, the People's Army, under the leadership of the party, has grown from small to large, from weak to strong, from victory to victory.

Persevering in the party's command of guns and building its own people's army is an unbreakable truth that the party has drawn in the struggle between blood and fire.

  In Sanwan Village, Yongxin County, Jiangxi Province, Xieshenghe Grocery Store was built in the Qing Dynasty. It is a small shop with a shop in front and a workshop at the back. It has a blue tile roof and a wooden eaves.

  On the night of September 29, 1927, in this grocery store, Mao Zedong proposed a series of methods and measures to transform the old army and build a new type of people's army.

  The reorganization of the army, the implementation of democracy, and the establishment of branches on the company provide the party with a political and organizational guarantee for the leadership of the army. The absolute leadership of the Chinese Communist Party over the People’s Army has been reorganized and laid the foundation for the People’s Army. The soul of a strong army.

  This is the precious experience of the Chinese Communists in building the army and governing the army through painstaking exploration at the cost of blood and lives.

  After the Nanchang Uprising, on August 7, 1927, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China secretly convened an emergency meeting in Hankou, Hubei Province.

At this meeting, which was later called the "August 7th Meeting," Mao Zedong put forward: "It must be known that political power is obtained from the barrel of a gun."

  The assertion that "government comes from the barrel of a gun" points out a new way out for the Chinese revolution at a crossroads.

  In December 1929, the Fourth Red Army held the famous Gutian Conference in Gutian Town, Shanghang County, Fujian Province.

The important content of the meeting pointed out that "China's Red Army is an armed group carrying out revolutionary political tasks." This army must be subordinated to the ideological leadership of the proletariat and is a tool for the people's revolutionary struggle and base area construction.

  During the Anti-Japanese War, Mao Zedong clearly pointed out at the Sixth Plenary Session of the Sixth Central Committee of the Party: "Our principle is that the party commands the gun, and we will never allow the gun to command the party."

  During the War of Liberation, the "Manifesto of the Chinese People's Liberation Army" clearly stated: "We are the great People's Liberation Army and the team led by the great Chinese Communist Party."

  This is a fundamental system with rigorous structure and rich content that the party has formed and established in the practice of leading the construction and development of a new type of people's army.

Comrades Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin, and Hu Jintao have all made important expositions on the party's absolute leadership over the army, and this fundamental principle and system has been continuously developed and sublimated.

  In October 2014, still in Gutian, President Xi Jinping emphasized when attending the military political work conference: Upholding the party’s absolute leadership over the military is the soul of a strong military. Casting a prisoner’s soul is the core task of our military’s political work and cannot be done at any time. shake.

  "The party's absolute leadership over the army is the soul and lifeblood of our army." The chairman responsibility system of the Military Commission is the fundamental system and the fundamental realization form that upholds the party's absolute leadership over the army. Level, occupy the leading position.

It is necessary to resolutely implement the requirements of the Chairman of the Military Commission to be responsible for the overall work of the Central Military Commission, to lead and command the nation's armed forces, and to determine all major issues of national defense and army building, and to implement them throughout the entire process of national defense and army building in all fields.

  Completely reshape and repack.

Today's People's Army follows firmly in ideology, is absolutely loyal in politics, and keeps up with it in action.

The broad masses of officers and soldiers consciously strengthen the "four consciousnesses", strengthen the "four self-confidences", and achieve the "two maintenances", implement the chairman responsibility system of the Military Commission, ensure the party's absolute leadership over the army, ensure the effective fulfillment of the missions and tasks of the army in the new era, and ensure that the people's army Always maintain the nature, purpose, and true qualities.

  Throughout the years, no matter how the internal and external environment of the military construction changes, and how the organizational form of the military changes, the party's absolute leadership over the military will never waver, and the People's Army will always move forward courageously in a firm and correct political direction.

Armed with theory, standing root for soul

——Ensure that our army always advances triumphantly under the banner of the party

  North Korea’s Park Dafeng, 799.6 meters above sea level, is steep and densely forested. A road passes through the east side of the foot of the mountain.

  That summer 70 years ago, the volunteer squad leader Chai Yunzhen, after the sacrifice of the entire class, with the fearless spirit of revolutionary heroism, stayed alone at the Pak Tak Peak position day and night, running out of ammunition and food, severely wounded, and fainted on the ground.

  During the battle, Chai Yunzhen's entire squad wiped out more than 200 enemy troops and destroyed one enemy command post. Not only did they regain three positions, they also defended the Volunteer Army’s front-line command post and field hospitals.

  Heroes are not born. History tells us that the key to the people’s army being able to emerge in large numbers, overcome difficulties, be invincible, and grow stronger is to be armed with Marxist theories, to have lofty ideals and beliefs, and to dedicate themselves bravely for their ideals and beliefs. The noble pursuit.

  Even in the most difficult period of the Long March, the Red Army persisted in opening a mobile Red Army University, carried out ideological and political education while marching, insisted on arming the minds of officers and soldiers with scientific theories, and solidified the Red Army into an invincible force.

  With the guidance of scientific theory, one by one, the cowboys, apprentices, and child brides-in-laws put on military uniforms, took up arms, and grew up to be outstanding revolutionary fighters. They joined the war of resistance against the people with their enemies, and sailed across the Yangtze River.

  This is the power of thought.

  Mao Zedong’s military thoughts, Deng Xiaoping’s thoughts on army building in the new era, Jiang Zemin’s thoughts on national defense and army building, Hu Jintao’s thoughts on national defense and army building, and Xi Jinping’s thoughts on strengthening the army, are in the same line and advance with the times, providing scientific guidance and actions for the continuous development and growth of our army. Program.

  Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the People’s Army has always insisted on arming the entire army with the party’s innovative theories as its primary task, firmly established the fundamental guiding position of Xi Jinping’s thought on strengthening the army, guiding officers and soldiers to build a solid foundation, and truly build and master ideologically and politically. The army strives to train revolutionary soldiers in the new era of the "four possesses", and forge a strong army with iron belief, iron belief, iron discipline, and iron responsibility.

  More than 40 years ago, the officers and soldiers of the "Three Great Power 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 insisted on using the party's innovative theory to build a company and educate people, in-depth systematic study and practice. To understand and integrate into work, forging the "four irons" excellent company, the company's construction is comprehensive and advanced, and it has successfully completed major tasks such as restructuring and refitting, actual military exercises, emergency rescue and disaster relief, and commemorating the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Anti-Japanese War.

  "Ensure that our army will always advance triumphantly under the banner of the party." The growth trajectory of an advanced company is a vivid epitome of deepening theoretical arms, forging a firm soul, and giving full play to the lifeline role of political work.

  Striving for a new era, the People’s Army adheres to the guidance of Xi Jinping’s Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, implements Xi Jinping’s Thought on Strengthening the Army, implements the military strategy of the new era, and strides forward towards the party’s goal of strengthening the army in the new era, in order to realize the greatness of the Chinese nation. Rejuvenation provides stronger strategic support.

Prepare for war, determined to win

——To overcome the need for a strong army to be able to fight and win battles

  In April 2021, President Xi came to the banks of the Xiang River.

  Looking back at that tragic battle in the history of the Chinese revolution, he pointed out: "We should have such a belief in victory for the realization of the next century's goal and the realization of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. No matter how difficult it is, think about the Long March of the Red Army. I want to fight in the Xiangjiang River."

  Overcoming difficulties is the only way to fight against the Xiangjiang River.

From the gunshots at the head of Nanchang, to the sparks of Jinggangshan, Hubei, Henan and Anhui, from attacking the Japanese invaders to overthrowing the Jiang dynasty, from "crossing the Yalu River" to building a new China... The glorious course is also a course of tenacious struggle and facing up to difficulties.

  The test of blood and fire has tempered the Chinese Communist Party's temperament and daring to fight and daring to win; the test of blood and fire has also tempered the bloody courage of the people's army that is not afraid of hardship and death.

  With such a bloody nature, the People's Army issued a heroic declaration of "three disbeliefs": do not believe that there are unfinished tasks, do not believe that there are difficulties that cannot be overcome, do not believe that there are enemies that cannot be defeated!

  With this courage, the People's Army "learned from warfare", along the way, it has become more and more courageous and stronger in the bloody gunpowder.

  The wheels of history are rolling forward.

It is the duty of soldiers to guard the peace.

Longevity is also a test for soldiers.

  "What I think most is whether our army can always adhere to the party's absolute leadership when the party and the people need it, whether it can pull up and win the battle, and whether commanders at all levels can lead troops to fight and command. fight."

  The "question of victory" issued by the commander-in-chief was shocking.

  "To overcome the need for a strong army to be able to fight and win battles", what is the standard of combat effectiveness, how to look at the status quo of combat effectiveness, and how to build combat effectiveness... This "combat effectiveness standard discussion" can be called "a discussion on the truth standard in the military field." ".

The whole army discussed combat effectiveness, and gathered a high degree of consensus on training elite soldiers and seeking victory:

  -Being able to fight and win battles is always the key to a strong army in this army.

Combat effectiveness is the only fundamental criterion.

  ——In the face of the stubborn and chronic diseases that have accumulated for many years, it is necessary to scrape the bones to cure the poison and break the wrist of the strong man.

  At the end of 2015, accompanied by a snowstorm, deepening the reform of national defense and the mobilization of the army, the drums and hammers were heard and spread thousands of miles.

  The reform of the leadership and command system, the reform of the scale, structure and force composition, the reform of the military policy and system... The land of China is staged a large-scale relocation and transfer of defenses and subordinates in the peaceful era, and it is staged a far-reaching major adjustment and integration.

The old designation entered the Military History Museum gloriously, the new official seal was printed with bright red tracks, and the People's Army had a new system, a new structure, a new structure, and a new look.

  Reform allows the vitality of all elements of combat effectiveness to burst forth; innovation allows all sources of military modernization to flow fully.

  At the beginning of the new year in 2018, the Central Military Commission solemnly held a training and mobilization meeting. Chairman Xi, dressed in uniform, boarded the reading stage of the main venue and issued instructions to the whole army:

  "All levels of the army must strengthen the training and preparation of a clear direction, unswervingly place military training in a strategic position, as the central task, hold on to it, and achieve results..."

  From commanders to combatants, from agencies to grassroots, from troops to academies, the whole army follows orders and follows orders, and in-depth advances actual combat training, joint combat training, and strengthens testing and confrontational training. Strengthen emergency response training, and extensively carry out mass training contests focusing on job training, comprehensive inspection and pull, and system combat drills as the main focus... Galloping and howling war eagles, a magnificent picture of a new era of large military training is unfolding magnificently.

  This is a flight of unknown seas, unknown situation, and unknown air conditions-a Chinese Air Force pilot Liu Rui and his comrades drove a H-6K fighter plane and flew to the western Pacific Ocean for training.

  They overcome all kinds of interference and reach the designated airspace.

The sea and the sky are the same color, without any reference.

Liu Rui put the handheld navigator on the front window glass and took a picture.

"The Chinese Air Force has existed at this latitude and longitude for the first time."

  The Chinese Air Force continued to carry out many long-sea and ocean-going trainings in the past few years, and continued to fly new tracks in training and preparations.

  Behind the practice of major military struggles is the improvement of strategic capabilities and the evolution of strategic posture.

History continues to move forward, and China in the new era is increasingly approaching the center of the world stage.

"Today, we are closer to the goal of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation than at any time in history, and we need to build a powerful people's army more than at any time in history."

  A rising China needs a strategic vision of the world; today's military needs strategic considerations of the world in mind.

  From the borders of the North to the seas of the South, from the western plateau to the coast of the East China Sea, military training in the new era presents an exciting and magnificent scene——

  The iron flow is rolling, the army's many elite troops are fighting in turn; the giant ship ploughs, and the navy's many formations confront each other in multi-dimensional confrontation; the sea of ​​clouds, the air force war eagle thunder assault; the deep mountains and forests, the rocket army is pointing to the sky with new missiles...

  Twist the need for a strong army and forge a strong force.

Under the leadership of the party, the people's army will come when it is called, fight when it comes, and win when it comes.

Do not forget the original intention, benefit and benefit

——We must adhere to the fundamental purpose of serving the people wholeheartedly

  Hubei is in a hurry!

Wuhan is in danger!

The people need the people's army!

  In Wuhan Huoshenshan Hospital, 34 front-line anti-epidemic personnel raised their fists: "I volunteer to join the Communist Party of China..."

  After the short-lived swearing-in ceremony for joining the party, the People’s Army doctors put on protective clothing and walked firmly into the "red zone."

  Since its birth, the People's Army has always closely linked its mission with the interests of the people.

In the Autumn Harvest Uprising, the uprising troops did not continue to use the title of the National Revolutionary Army, and they played the banner of the "Workers and Peasants Revolutionary Army" and publicly declared that they were an armed force representing the interests of the people.

It is the sacred duty of the people's army to carry guns and fight for the people.

  In September 1944, at the memorial service for Comrade Zhang Side, Mao Zedong delivered a speech with far-reaching influence on the whole party and the whole army with the theme of "Serving the People".

  "Dying for the benefit of the people is heavier than Mount Tai; working hard for fascists and dying for those who exploit and oppress the people is lighter than a feather." The five words "Serving the People" are always engraved on Communists and Communists. In the hearts of revolutionary soldiers.

  Fighting floods, fighting SARS, earthquake relief, and fighting the new crown pneumonia epidemic. Whenever a crisis comes, the people's soldiers will not forget their original intentions, go retrograde time after time, and always put the interests of the people above all else.

  For more than 90 years, this army has carried guns for the people, fought for the people, and resolutely defended the people's peaceful labor and life; for more than 90 years, this army has been in harmony with the people, living and dead, and will always be the defender of the people's interests; for more than 90 years, This army has the courage to undertake urgent, difficult, dangerous and heavy tasks, and take practical actions to benefit the people.

Turning over the history of the people's army is a history of serving the people wholeheartedly.

  At the celebration of the 90th anniversary of the founding of the army, President Xi emphasized: "To advance the cause of strengthening the army, we must adhere to the fundamental purpose of serving the people wholeheartedly, and always be a soldier of the people's trust, support, and love of the people."

  "We must adhere to the fundamental purpose of serving the people wholeheartedly." In the new era, the People's Army will always "put the interests of the people first" as a "touchstone" to test whether revolutionary soldiers truly practice the purpose.

  When the clarion call for poverty alleviation was sounded, the people’s soldiers gave full play to their own advantages, regarded the resident as their hometown and the masses as relatives, and actively carried out various forms of targeted poverty alleviation actions, becoming an important force in the special battlefield for poverty alleviation.

  According to statistics, the whole army has fixed points to help 4100 poor villages, 293,000 poor households, and 924,000 poor people; assisted in the construction of 113 poor county hospitals, 156 "August One Aimin Schools", 1544 primary schools and kindergartens; Helped to build 3468 poor village party branches and 1458 poor village clinics, and recommended more than 5,100 outstanding retired soldiers to serve as "soldiers" and "commissioners."

  President Xi emphasized at the "July 1st Medal" awarding ceremony: "All comrades in the party must adhere to the people's stand, the people's supremacy, unremittingly do practical and good deeds for the masses, and always maintain flesh-and-blood ties with the people."

  When the army wins the war, the people are the backers.

The roots of the people's army are deeply rooted in the people's deep ground; the mighty power of the people's war comes from the great power of the people.

At present, science and technology are developing rapidly, and the form of war is profoundly evolving, but the truth that the mighty power of people's war comes from the great power of the people has not changed, and the military, civilian, fish and water conditions continue to write new chapters of the times.

  The country is the people, and the people are the country. Fighting the country and guarding the country is the heart of the people.

The People's Army always keeps the people in mind and will always be the soldiers of the people. With the will of the people, the will of the people, and the strength of the people, it will be invincible and invincible in the world.

Good style, always keep true

——In order for our army to be strong, the style must be strong

  There is a "thunderstone" with a length of 3 meters and a width of 2 meters on Jingzhu Mountain in the southwest of Ciping, Jinggang Mountain.

In October 1927, Mao Zedong led the autumn harvest uprising troops into Jinggangshan.

Before going up the mountain, he stood on this big rock and solemnly announced three disciplines: act according to the command; pay the money to the local tyrants; and don't take the peasant a sweet potato.

  This is the embryonic form of the "three major disciplines" of the people's army.

  The People's Army has always attached great importance to the development of work style, and strict discipline is an important magic weapon for the party to lead the People's Army to defeat the enemy.

  Condensed under the banner of the party, the People's Army has always been known throughout the world for its excellent work style and strict discipline.

The old Red Army Liu Yue recalled during his lifetime that during the Long March, food could only be distributed to officers and soldiers, but he could only eat a fixed amount of personal weight every day.

In such a difficult situation, Red Army soldiers would rather starve to death than steal food from their bodies.

  For more than 90 years, the People's Army has always received the heartfelt support and love of the people. It is very important that it has always maintained the traditions of the old Red Army and the old eight-way style.

  In the new era, can the glorious traditions and fine styles cultivated and formed in long-term practice be passed on from generation to generation?

This has become a major and realistic issue.

  "Our military must be strong in its style, otherwise it will easily collapse." Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Party Central Committee and Chairman Xi have taken style building as a basic long-term work.

  "It is necessary to deepen the work of improving the style of work, implement it in every aspect of army building and management, and really work hard on being pragmatic, pragmatic, and implementing, and consolidate the foundation of governing the army according to the law and governing the army strictly..." Chairman Xi said to strengthen the work style. Establishing and maintaining the long-standing good image of the people's army pays great attention to and keeps thinking about it.

  Re-establish the image of the work style, force the righteous wind to fight against corruption, and effectively solve the outstanding problems of the breeding and spread of unhealthy winds and corruption. Historical memory also left deep contemplation of "always on the road".

  Disciplinary inspection, inspections, and audits-three "sharp swords" hanging high, pointed by the sword and deterred, the righteous trend is anti-corruption, both the symptoms and root causes are treated with precision, and the "screws" of supervision and accountability are tightened and unhealthy. Evil spirits have nowhere to hide, hidden rules and bad habits are difficult to hide, and an overwhelming anti-corruption struggle has taken shape.

  Consolidate the bottom line for not daring to corrupt, delineate the red line that cannot be corrupted, and build a strong high-voltage line that does not want to be corrupted-the "three lines" are developed simultaneously. The guiding force is highly unified, and a large-scale anti-corruption pattern has been established for long-term management and fundamental governance.

  The most effective way is the rule of law, and the most effective is the system.

Laws and regulations in various fields of the people's army construction are promulgated intensively, especially around the key to governing officials and governing power according to law, and the institutional cage is becoming tighter and tighter.

  Style is image, discipline shows power.

Only by fulfilling orders and bans, can we attack like tigers and defend like Mount Tai.

It is precisely because of the revolutionary discipline based on a high degree of political consciousness that the people's army has always been a highly united fighting collective, and has always maintained a strong cohesion and combat effectiveness.

  To use the party's glorious tradition and fine style to strengthen beliefs and gather strength is not only a spiritual watch that travels through time and space, but also a relay of action that does not forget the original intention.

  History is constantly flowing, and the spirit is passed on from generation to generation.

The Chinese Communist Party united and led the Chinese people and wrote the most magnificent epic in the history of the Chinese nation for thousands of years.

The Communist Party of China led the people's army and wrote a glorious chapter in which a powerful force of great teachers has continuously achieved brilliant victories and established great historical merits.

  Learn from history and create the future.

Chairman Xi’s speech at the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China has been deeply imprinted in the hearts of the officers and soldiers: “On the new journey, we must fully implement the party’s military strategy in the new era, implement the military strategy of the new era, and adhere to the party’s The absolute leadership of the People’s Army insists on taking the path of strengthening the army with Chinese characteristics, comprehensively advancing the political building of the army, reforming the army, strengthening the army with science and technology, strengthening the army with talents, and administering the army according to law. Ability and more reliable means to defend national sovereignty, security, and development interests!"
