Sheng Rui side is Navy 411 Hospital, Shanghai’s deputy chief physician anesthesia. In early July, the hospital received the Gulf of Aden, off the Somali coast mission to inform, you need to send a four to five years work experience anesthesiologist, also specified: Welcome to lesbians on the ship. Hospital, only three people qualified, Sheng Rui side as the only lesbian, impeccably become the best candidate.
she was a divorced woman, a person living with her daughter. Moreover, she had just executed from the garrison the task of medical support for four years back, on this mission, she can say no. However, she but then the leadership to ensure that: “I can go!”
going to escort her mother, a walk and is 5 months, tears in her eyes, pulled his mother’s clothes, is not let go. Sheng Rui side crouch down, kissed her cheek, eyes filled with tears.
2001, she and her husband’s marriage come to an end, since her daughter has been living with her, usually busy with work, her daughter did not suffer less. The end of 2004, she received a mission to Hong Kong Garrison of the command, had entrusted her daughter to the parents, the end of 2008 she had just come back, and now we voyage. Old father has been suffering from kidney stones, as his father had expected to have delayed the planned surgery. She felt sorry for her daughter, and I am sorry their loved ones.
a heartless, Sheng Rui firmly taken the side of the house … …
to the naval base, the leadership formation is thought to ask her to combat supply ship or ships, she replied: “Where hard on where to.” She is the oldest of seven female, she should take a good start.
weekdays, working mainly for the medical escort officers such as a cold, athlete’s foot, mouth ulcers and other minor illnesses small ailments, others said Sheng Rui side is overkill. She smiled and replied: “Who does not want to play an active role in the convoy? But if they really let me play to strengths, it means that soldiers suffering from serious illness, you need to do anesthesia, so I am happy to no avail.”
8 6, soldiers Wang Shuai a stomach ache. Rui Fang Sheng careful diagnosis found that he is likely to be chronic appendicitis. As the disease found in time, right medicine, treatment with fluids and drugs to put the disease eliminated, eliminating the risks and pain of surgery.
voyage long time, long monotony of life, some soldiers began to react stiff, quiet. One soldier was withdrawn, and we do not like contact, some people even suspect that he had depression. Dr. Sheng studied psychology, she understands women’s unique role in this group. So when the helicopter deck and a walk, she would take the initiative to chat with this warrior, she found that the soldiers actually eager to talk and express desire to express themselves. Later, she also recommended to the ship led to a change that soldiers take on the role more jobs, he slowly brightened, work has been done well.
free time, Sheng Rui side would think to call his daughter. Two months ago, when her daughter called in tears every time. Slowly, her daughter began to understand her mother’s choice, also called her mother to take some more pictures back to the sea, to give the students talk about her mother’s escort experience.
see her daughter grow up, Sheng Rui Fang sincerely pleased, she said to her daughter: “My child, life does not believe in tears, we have to be strong.”
as escort delay marriage
Yun Hu is the third time to delay marriage. One is to participate in “mountain island teams” under the basic services, is to participate in a show rehearsal. This time, she and her future husband, the wedding in October 6th, 2009, the invitations are sent to friends and family too, and can be escorted out because with the formation, had once again postponed the wedding. Her self-mockery, said: “I think so hard to marry.”
Hu Yun naval base in the logistics department lieutenant Zhoushan cultural officer, her work in the ship “Blue Shield Voice” radio broadcast staff, and team formation amateur actors performed, the host.
Hu Yun is a descendant of Old Navy, his father is a retired Navy destroyer before the detachment of a colonel of a coach captain. The sea, Yun Hu is a father had to experience life, her father was driving ships voyage to Russia from access routes.
“Dear comrades, ‘Voice of the Blue Shield’ now broadcasting …” a day after dinner, Hu Yun this sweet voice sounded in the radio time, spread each ship every corner of the battle position. Radio set up a “convoy Express”, “spray Xinyu”, “song sets,” “Meizhouyixing”, “lying phrase” and other content-rich sections, but also for words such as “non-commissioned officers reform” these people interested in the topic , Q Radio and a number of doubt and confusion of the program. Gradually, listen to “Voice of the Blue Shield,” a daily radio has become a required course for the officers and men, became a relief to alleviate fatigue. Sometimes we talk to a new, Yun Hu will naturally think: “Quick, let Hu Yun broadcast about these things.” Ship officers and men, especially the love life of a child such a happy occasion, we always write a paragraph on humorous words, let Hu Yun on the day of broadcast in the widely advertised, so that the whole ship of people to share the joy and happiness.
set sail soon, ships in rough seas during the storm event of severe turbulence, Hu Yun inevitably suffered seasickness. Those days, let alone radio, and even eat and sleep all hell broke loose, spit and spit all day, always in highly uncomfortable state of vertigo. One day, she went to take the newspaper reported house, soldiers found to have a look of pain lying on the machine, stood in front of a trash can, it seems that is sick of. Soldier said: “We go spit spit, but you can not leave the battle position, lying for a while and then work again.” See the soldiers, Hu Yun can not help but blush: radio can not stop, this time more to fulfill their duties, spit over the must then broadcast. Thus, the radio re-sounded her sweet voice. The difference is, she also stood in front of a garbage can, her teeth persist in broadcasting. Those days men will be careful to hear, her voice seems a bit unsteadily.
broadcasting of presiding over the course of many soldiers, and she gradually became friends. Sometimes the middle of the broadcast, there will be soldiers call in, ask to on-demand songs. Some soldiers asked her own bad mood, can point to their own song, to give family, even if they can not hear. Sometimes there will be soldiers knock on the door of radio room, that just did not have time to broadcast the contents of the down and asked her to today’s radio script. For these requirements, Hu Yun always happy to meet everyone, it also shows the contents of her broadcast is to everyone’s appetite.
10 月 6 that day, Hu Yun felt a big surprise. That this is her married life. That night, leading the ship in a small restaurant for the bride who held a “feast.” Banquet, wedding actually put on and the domestic like “Sixi balls”, “Taoyuan County” and other traditional wedding dishes, like smoke wedding and blessing, leadership speech, comrade blessing, but the lack of a groom. Yingying her happy tears.
2006 years from the Navy after graduating from University of Engineering, Hu Yun was assigned to communicate with the first points as a female captain, the first year she was named outstanding grass-roots cadres, but also took first base in speech contest one. Her work with the microphone seemed always destined, on the military, she is college radio station announcer, is the base to the base after the narrator of the Academia Historica, last year also came to inspect the base as head of the Central Military Commission explained. Now, she seems to be the formation of the “Lark”, with the voice playing on the ocean with moving chords. She also clearly remember the scene to participate in alpine island services, more than 20 days, as a cultural officer, she boarded with the teams with the Hill, East Lake Hill, inadvertently also became the first climb up through the point of view female naval officer.
Hu Yun warships childhood love-hate relationship, because his father always out to sea, and the family together from many, she also lost a lot of fatherly love for their happiness. “Lake” ship was the vice captain Zhujian Biao Hu Yun father’s old men, he told Hu Yun, once her father led the whole boat out to sea, suffered a typhoon at sea, they tenaciously fought with the bad sea conditions, that her father In the voyage tired vomited blood. She listens, Hu Yun could not help but shed tears, and his father had been in her eyes are so tall and strong, the image is unbeatable, I did not expect this tough guy will spit blood, and his father had never told her .
she thought, maybe that is the spirit of Old Navy.
