The bugler sounded the melody of missing, and the saluters escorted the coffins of 117 volunteers to the coffin storage area. People bowed three times to the martyr’s coffin. After the ceremony, 12 military vehicles carrying the coffin drove out of the airport under the escort of Shenyang Public Security Traffic Police motorcycles. Five volunteer veterans stood up to salute at the same time and looked after the convoy for a long time. Zhu Jiangbo, 68, the daughter of Zhu Zhimin, a martyr of the volunteer army, was full of tears and choked with sobs: “seeing them is like seeing my father go home!” Zhang Guoying, a 27 year old soldier from a brigade in the northern theater of war, carried out seven consecutive missions to welcome the remains of volunteers. As he escorted the coffin, he could not help but shed tears when he saw the citizens and the saluting veterans on both sides of the street. < / P > < p > in greeting the crowd, a citizen stood on the street for a long time, saluting the army in the direction of the convoy. “I am a martyr. I don’t know what I can do to see the martyrs returning home. I want to give them a gift!” He said. Huang Jiguang, Qiu Shaoyun and other well-known Chinese volunteer martyrs are sleeping here. The remains of six batches of 599 martyrs returned to China were also buried here. In the cemetery, a bunch of flowers are placed in front of each martyr’s tombstone. < / P > < p > in the center of the sunken Memorial square in the cemetery, the theme sculpture, which symbolizes heroes like mountains and praying for peace, stands quietly, and nine tall flower baskets are placed in an arc in front of the sculpture; around the square, under a circular wall of martyrs’ names, are filled with yellow and white chrysanthemums. < p > < p > at about 10 o’clock, accompanied by the graceful and low back “missing song”, the soldiers escorted the coffin of the martyrs of the volunteer army into the scene, and the whole audience played the national anthem. Li Weibo, an 88 year old volunteer soldier, had tears in his eyes. “It is those comrades in arms who have been sleeping on the battlefield, who built the great wall of the nation with blood and life in exchange for peace.” When the song of missing was played again, the soldiers raised the coffin of the martyrs and walked slowly to the burial palace. Wang Chunjie, who has worked in the cemetery for 16 years, has been standing on the side of the wall of fame, gazing at the coffin of the martyrs and quietly seeing off the heroes. < p > < p > at 10:20, people attending the ceremony lined up in long lines to pay tribute to the martyrs. Wearing an old dark green military uniform and holding a white chrysanthemum in his hand, Li Weibo slowly presented the flower to his brother who had been fighting side by side. He raised his right hand and saluted the wall of British name. < / P > < p > “although we don’t know their names, we fought side by side to defend our country. Whether we know them or not, they are all comrades in arms and relatives. ” Li Weibo said. In the early morning of September 27, Wang Chunjie came to the British wall and wiped the dust off the martyrs’ names with water. She specially wiped the names of the three people. They are: Ma Shixian, Lin Shuishi and Ding Zuxi. In addition to the rusty pen and enamel cup printed with the words “Resist U.S. aggression and aid Korea and protect the country”, there are also three seals with the names of Ma Shixian, Lin Shuishi and Ding Zuxi. < p > < p > log in to the Chinese Martyrs website, enter the British list of martyrs and search for “Lin Shuishi”. The information shows: “Lin Shuishi, male, was born in October 1928 in Zhangpu County, Zhangzhou City, Fujian Province. He was a soldier of the 6th company of 218 regiment of the 73rd division of the volunteer army. He won the fourth class merit once and died in Korea in June 1953.” The reasons for the sacrifice, the place of burial and the deeds of the martyrs are not covered for the time being. < p > < p > when the news came that Lin Shuishi’s seal was found, Zhangpu County Veterans Affairs Bureau and local people quickly took action to find Lin Shuishi’s relatives. Since 2014, the remains of 716 volunteers in South Korea have returned to the motherland. In 2019, the Ministry of Veterans Affairs launched social forces to help the martyrs find their relatives. Through DNA comparison technology, six of them have been helped to find their relatives. The purpose of looking for heroes and remembering martyrs is to remember history and forge ahead bravely. A hopeful nation cannot be without heroes, and a country with a bright future can not be without vanguard. The great spirit of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea will always be the precious wealth of the Chinese people. Every Chinese can draw courage and strength from it. ” Liu Kai, the son of the volunteer martyr Liu Tianzeng, said. Autumn and September is the season of military recruitment.
