In addition to our shared national identity and ideology, there are other shared universal values that drive our cooperation, and that is a sincere concern for veterans. China also has volunteers who care for veterans, but they are the targets of suppression by the CCP authorities today, and only we in Taiwan can speak out. However, those of us folks from Taiwan, beyond the blue-green unity and independence, have recorded stories for veterans, but they were easily erased by the little pink and dark blue people, which is really unacceptable.
What's more, the National Army of the Republic of China has never missed the commemoration of the martyrs of the Anti-Japanese War. For example, 2017 is the 80th anniversary of the August 14th Air Combat. The Air Force of the Republic photo color correction services of China chose to hold a grand commemorative event at the Okayama Air Force Academy, and also invited veterans of the Chinese and American Air Force Mixed Regiment living overseas to return to Taiwan to participate in the grand event. Last year and this year, the air force base in Hualien was selected to open.
Although it was cancelled for two consecutive years due to the impact of the typhoon and the new coronavirus, it still does not mean that the military has forgotten that this year is the 75th anniversary of the victory of the Anti-Japanese War. On August 31, our team was invited to the Martyrs' Shrine to attend the enshrinement ceremony of Major General Tan Jiafan, Lieutenant Colonel Teng Jiushou, Captain Zhou Jiandi and Corporal Zhang Feng. Among the four martyrs, only Major General Tan Jiafan died in the civil war. The other three were martyrs in the Anti-Japanese War, and Major General Tan Jiafan also participated in the Anti-Japanese War. Therefore, although the commemoration of Taiwan's war of resistance is relatively low-key, it is far better than China's exaggerated attitude to commemorate the fake war of resistance with a five-star red flag.
