Every August 1st is the anniversary of the founding of the Chinese People's
Liberation Army, commonly known as "August 1st" Army Day. On August 1, 1927,
the Communist Party of China led the Northern Expedition Army of more than
30,000 people, under the leadership of Zhou Enlai, He Long, Ye Ting, Zhu De,
Liu Bocheng, etc., to hold an armed uprising in Nanchang, Jiangxi, and fired the
first shot against the Kuomintang reactionaries. On July 11, 1933, the Provisional
Central Government of the Chinese Soviet Republic, based on the recommendation
of the Central Revolutionary Military Commission on June 30, decided that August
1 would be the anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Workers' and Peasants' Red
Army (the predecessor of the Chinese People's Liberation Army).
Land, blue sky, ocean... Every inch of the country is guarded by Chinese soldiers;
anti-epidemic, flood control, guard... Wherever there is a need, there are soldiers of
the people's children! The more difficult it is, the more forward it is! Let us celebrate
the 95th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese People's Liberation Army.
