Changjiang Weekly - - CONTENTS -

Un­der the guid­ance of the Na­tional De­fense Ed­u­ca­tion Of­fice, a large-scale mil­i­tary bar­racks open­ing-day event was held in Wuhan on Au­gust 15. The heads of the Na­tional De­fense Ed­u­ca­tion Of­fice from 31 prov­inces, au­ton­o­mous re­gions and mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties, the rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the armed forces and po­lice force, and more than 3,000 Wuhan cit­i­zens took part in the event.

Par­tic­i­pants watched seven skills and tac­ti­cal demon­stra­tions, ex­pe­ri­enced parachut­ing, and ate the mil­i­tary ra­tions.

Wuhan has held more than 20 events on Au­gust 15, the tra­di­tional day for mil­i­tary-civil­ian ac­tiv­i­ties, since 2012. Thou­sands of cit­i­zens have had the chance to at­tend and ex­pe­ri­ence the progress of the mil­i­tary.

Ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional De­fense Ed­u­ca­tion Of­fice, more and more open­ing-day events will be held in at least 600 mil­i­tary bar­racks in China this year.
