Excerpts:
This is an army that has created many miraculous marvels, but at the same time undergone much hardship and pains. The PLA soldiers experienced countless hails of bullets and underwent a baptism of blood and fire to win the countrys independence and peoples liberation at the cost of their lives and blood. Therefore, even though the investigation into Gus activities may reveal more evidence of crimes, Gu neither represents the PLA nor will his misdeeds tarnish the reputations of other soldiers. The names of our soldiers appear every year on the list of winners for moral role models or on the TV program Moving China, where their touching stories not only convey the hopes of the country, but also serve as the voice of our times.
Strength of character, a traditional virtue of our soldiers since the founding of the PLA, has passed down to todays young soldiers, which is proved by vivid facts, one after another. Those members of the post-1980 generation and the post-1990 generation, after becoming PLA soldiers, have assumed the mission and sacred responsibility of safeguarding our homeland and peace. These true heroes of our times have always had pride in the nation and the spirit of perseverance in their veins.
The PLA is the countrys mighty pillar and guardian of the people and cannot fall into the hands of the corruption. Gus case has sent the message that the PLA has zero tolerance of corruption, and that whoever breaches the law will be punished according to the law, which is the expectation and longing of all Chinese. Therefore, the public should cast an objective and fair look at the army, love it and give it the due respect it has always deserved.
