By Chairman Mao Zedong as the “blow” is a brave and senior generals, our military is one of the most gifted military strategist. 1927 to join the party, took part in the Nanchang Uprising. Land during the Revolutionary War showed the extraordinary military skills, first against “encirclement and suppression”, the time for the red division of the Su Yu, 64 command team victory and the capture of the enemy long Hui-chan. During the Long March, he insisted the three-year guerrilla war in the South. During the war, the New Fourth Army has appointed Su Yu, deputy commander of the second detachment, and Chairman of the New Fourth Army political commissar of the First Division teacher, Su Zhongjun district commander and other staff, directed Wei Gang ambushes, Huangqiao battle, battle bridge, are big victory. During the liberation war, is the most brilliant military career Su Yu period, during which he has Ren Huadong Field Army deputy commander, on behalf of the commander, deputy commander of the Third Field Army, commanded the Soviet Union in the battle (seven-seven Jie), Jinan campaign, Huaihai battle, cross the river battle, achieving brilliant victories.

Was awarded the rank of general in 1955. Died 1984.
I was born in 1942, when his father was the First Division of the New Fourth Army led by anti-frequent “raids” and arduous “anti-rural” struggle, no time to take care of me, so I was born on foster care in Yangzhou, Jiangsu maternal grandparents. Grandfather admired his father’s military career, so for me the name “Emerson.” Later, because of fear of the enemy found me, for my safety considerations, less than two years old grandmother personally, I sent to her parents. Since then I have been following their victory in the country until he moved to the country, it can be said, is the father to guide me step by step onto a military career.
under the guidance of his father, my courage and the will have been tempered. I like the gun, my father is to guide the army took the road of enlightenment teacher. His father’s words and deeds, the army took the road from me a great demonstration of nurturing role. The early 1960s, I graduated from high school, into the Harbin Military Engineering Institute.
remember 56 years old, my father gave me a really special gift — a small pistol. This is a home from the landlord to pay the gift pistol, close range, there is no real function. He said to me: “It is a good school, grew up on a soldier and serve the motherland.” At that time, I understood his words, not deep, but my favorite gun. In his father’s instructions, the childhood I soon mastered the target, firing the essentials, but also learned to wipe the gun maintenance methods. Then I gradually sensible, and only realized my father taught me to love the gun and pains, he was hoping I grew up the same set and his ambition, the cause of liberation for the people to join the fighting ranks of devotion.

in the war years, the father is separated from the gun body, even as senior commanders, he also always has a revolver waist. National liberation, he still maintained a love of guns. Seized the gun battle, the guns of our own making, foreign military delegations presented the gun, he retained several teams. Sunday, I came home from school, catch up with him the time, took us to the firing. Father’s marksmanship is very accurate, often with our game. Once, he thinks too much chest ring target on the tree branches with a plug on the ground, wore the top half of table tennis, then let me and my brother hit. My brother is the area shooting team players, but tens of meters outside the play or the first time such a small thing, he did not hit my brother shooting results and the same father smiled and took the gun, the pressure on the bullet , gun aimed, fired the first shot put the goal of breaking, and my brother and I secretly impressed. A variety of guns, the father must learn, rifles, submachine guns, machine guns, he played, but familiar with their performance.
training sub-critical, such as “stepmother”
father was an old soldier, his words and deeds, not only funny, but also has a military unique temperament. He was serious and funny and asked me: “hard and dead, which is more uncomfortable?” He said: “The death process is very short, difficult to boil a long time to be tolerated. A soldier to be afraid of hardship and tired, not afraid of tension. “
my grandmother was born by feeding of naturally more finicky. To the father’s side, he is focusing on training my hard-working, brave and tenacious and other qualities. In my young mind, my father is very strict, picky eaters are not allowed to eat, not crying at night march, hungry and cold are not to cry, otherwise would have been his wrist. Listening to Mama, Mount area in western Zhejiang, I am just more than two years, my father taught me to learn to swim. He brought me to a small stream, so I jumped into the water holding a bamboo, I am not into the water, my father put me up, “snapped” to look thrown into the water, because holding a bamboo tube, so we float the.
stay on my school, my father’s strict head teacher thought: Chief of Staff for his son how such harsh? He finally could not help but ask me: “You are not the mother born?” I answered candidly: “Yes.” “Yes?” The teacher also asked again, as if at home on my strict requirements have to use the “stepmother “word to explain.
not satisfied with our father, especially while speaking, while thou art to eat. He said: “I took part in the Nanchang Uprising before the training unit of troops in Wuchang, Ye Ting, very demanding, very nervous even to eat, one is devoured. Teaching team Executive sometimes deliberately rice mixed with hair and sand, you have to pick on enough to eat. “
father is in such a seemingly harsh, but in fact well-intentioned way to exercise my guts, because he is a tiger, absolutely can not tolerate his son is the rabbit gall . He said: “In the war environment, a variety of conditions is very difficult, from the will, the character, the body must be able to adapt to war conditions, will usually suffer.”
1969 In the fall, where I air missile units Yifang to the mainland, gradually training and better living conditions, but do not want to let my father happens to be more comfortable in the environment, again I tune into the north line of a war of aggression against the state of combat readiness level of field forces.
experience with child soldier to explain in words
after my army, my father always told me to take his own life linked with the safety of the motherland, with soldiers life together, serving the country, dedicated to national defense. I think my father with me about the “military father and son” now!
as a grass-roots level commander, how to take a good soldier? At first I lack experience in this area. Father told me how many good soldiers with the know-how. He said: “To know the soldiers, and they want to ingratiate themselves, so they can respect you and love you; have to completely trust them, they can completely trust you do, the most important thing is to take the lead, so that even in the most dangerous moment, the soldiers will believe you, and you open a way to kill. “(Southern Metropolis Daily www.nddaily.com SouthernMetropolisDailyMark Southern Network)
by the father’s education and guidance when I was platoon leader , deputy company commander, company commander during each place, each outpost guard post personally arrangements; resident in the vicinity of few hills to climb up to look at all familiar with the terrain features and access roads, emergency evacuation areas selected, found in natural caves, but also be sure to dig into to find out the situation, to prepare for use.

always concerned about the reunification of the motherland
father of the liberation of Taiwan as their most important combat missions, always at heart. Just the liberation of Shanghai in 1949, he began to study the occupation of Fujian after the liberation of the Taiwan issue, the CPC Central Committee and Chairman Mao was later appointed him commander of the liberation of Taiwan, he conducted a more in-depth specific aspects of the preparations.
1950 outbreak of the Korean War, he served as Chairman Mao and the Korean War designated combat commanders. Because of the war six years of war wounds and overworked, he suddenly fell ill and did not go to Korea. Korean War put a lot of preparation for the liberation of Taiwan troops and war materiel transferred to the northeast, the task was forced to suspend operations against Taiwan. Did not think that the “suspension” actually has been “slow” to the present.
I feel in many ways: in his father’s heart, the task of liberation of Taiwan did not just lift the suspension. In 1949 he said to me: “national liberation, I take you back to his hometown in Hunan.” But until his death, he has not returned home. I do not understand a child, not liberated it? Not have a good chance and conditions it? Until I became a real soldier, came to understand his father said, “national liberation” of the profound meaning — must include the liberation of Taiwan and all islands.
in his father’s small house, always hung on the wall map of Taiwan until his death.
our family had lived a martyr’s children, go home from the military after graduation, my father asked him a question: “why are our troops still called ‘PLA’ not called ‘Defense’ ? “He thought for a moment, replied:” Because Taiwan is not liberated. “his father said happily,” You can graduate from the academy. “
until now, I have become an old soldier, and homeland not uniform, this is a piece of the entire Chinese nation, “heart.”
when I can do something in the people’s army, and bears some responsibility when I am more grateful to his father’s training and education, and more missed his father. Father’s first deep, passionate, “veteran music” often ring in my ear:
Half a career spent his room,
not levy under the saddle to ride Kongzong.
explosive roar, such as drums,
bullets whistling if piano playing.
