company of 369 officers and men to take root vegetable is the border of the witness. That year, veterans stationed Jinjishan when it was still a barren rubble. Ancestors back from the patrol on the road back to earth wasteland to grow vegetables, a touch of green from the beginning to the later fruit fragrance garden, vegetable Shoubian generations who witnessed this piece of positions in a common destiny with the complex. Today, living conditions improved, security officers do not need to open up wasteland to grow vegetables to survive, but they still care for this piece of vegetable, so that this “spiritual home” always lush.
former enlisted soldiers Li Qidong home business, income of nearly one million a year. He was a soldier a few years, the family business to take care of the decline due to lack of people. Retired down the mountain, his luggage was only a washed white backpack and a few household items. But the veterans feel a very productive: “What a man can not see the light, but also look at what pay. A person who forgot they were coming from, not a big tree on the long, another big success also at most a bonsai. “retired three years later, with the hard-working spirit to develop in the armed forces, he called the business to Southeast Asia, a rising star in the local business community.
“afraid to face a military history, destined not to win the future”
“shells stuck in the mouth, a hundred years is difficult to speak.” Eighth post that stands in the door “dud”, like a silent textbooks, so that men often witnessed an upsurge always hard.

Eighth of the zone in the past, many border residents are reluctant to build a house, only willing to buy appliances and other necessities. The reason is simple: if the day war came to buy electrical appliances can be moved, built a house fire will be destroyed.
