Jindalai, where are the flowers? ——On Ren Hongju, an old volunteer soldier

“It’s said that Shangganling is red in battle, and the smoke of gunpowder is rolling over the sky Hu xiudao stood up and looked up, but saw that Shangganling was like the Great Wall… ” Ren Hongju, 86, was once a member of the 31st division of the 12th army of the volunteer army. Nearly 70 years later, the silver haired Ren Hongju once again performed his own battlefield work Shandong express book “Venus hero”, still in high spirits. < / P > < p > “in Korea, we were fighters, propagandists and ambulance men, and” three in one “literary and art soldiers.” The old man’s story will bring us back to the time of war. At the end of March 1951, Ren Hongju, 17, crossed the Yalu River with the cultural and industrial team of the 31st division of the volunteer army. The task of Ren Hongju’s unit is to rush forward to the front line and prepare for new battles.

shovel stir fried noodles with vegetables and four rifles on his shoulders, and 20 shovels and chucks on his shoulders, with shovels on his backpack to reduce the burden of gun barrel and tie a shell. Ren Hongju said. < / P > < p > marching is not just walking. “We met enemy planes on the first day of the March, and almost every day since.” Ren Hongju said, “as we march, we observe the woods and caves that can be hidden, and we are ready to hide at any time.” < / P > < p > “instructor, after a good summary, the March has many advantages. He is energetic and fast, and there is no coward or straw bag. The whole battalion reached the 38th line and resolutely eliminated the Yanks < / P > < p > “the members of the cultural workers cheer for everyone and let the dull air burst into active laughter and shouting.” The old man’s face was full of pride, “for the literary and artistic soldiers, this is our fight.” The battle of Shangganling left a deep impression on Ren Hongju. He came to Shangganling with the 12th army. “Our task is to interview heroes in the field and then publicize them immediately.” Ren Hongju recalled. One day, Ren Hongju met a young soldier on the ridge between the front line and the command post. “He was armed with a submachine gun, his dry lips tightly closed, and his military uniform was burnt yellow by mud and sweat. It was obvious that he had come down from the position.” Ren Hongju said, “the sound of guns roared in my ears, and I sat on the hillside to interview him.” < p > < p > this soldier is named Hu xiudao. He led his comrades in arms to repel more than 40 attacks of the enemy, killing and injuring more than 280 enemies, creating a miracle in the history of war. < p > < p > five days later, Ren Hongju created the Shandong express book the hero of Venus. Ren Hongju performed almost all over the army. Hu xiudao’s name spread throughout the army and even the whole country. “I think one of the important reasons is that there was a strong atmosphere of propaganda heroes, learning heroes and striving to be heroes,” Ren Hongju said < / P > < p > “in the battle, when the troops fight, we will keep up, rescue the wounded comrades and bury the remains of the martyrs.” Talking about rescuing the wounded, the old man choked. During the fifth campaign, Ren Hongju and his comrades in arms were responsible for the search and rescue of the wounded. “It was dark at night, when I was young, walking alone on the empty road, sweating.” Ren Hongju said. By the stream in the valley, Ren Hongju found Li Zhentang, chief of staff of the battalion. “He’s dying with blood in his abdomen.” “I put my arm behind his neck and spoke to him in a soft voice, trying to disperse the pain. He died on my arm. ” < p > < p > at the foot of the mountain, Ren Hongju dug the pit with his hand, and his fingers gouged out blood. He buried the body of the chief of staff, then got up and cried, “farewell to the martyrs, salute!” The purpose of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea is to protect the country. For the sake of our motherland, I have no regrets. ” Ren Hongju said. In the interview, Ren Hongju repeatedly mentioned a kind of flower called Jindalai, which blooms in spring and is beautiful. At that time, the 16-or-7-year-old youth, the group of vigorous cultural workers and the valiant and vigorous hundred thousand division were just like Jindalai, in full bloom in the battlefield.
