A new Chinese People’s Liberation Army recruiting video emphasizes service and sacrifice while showing off their latest and greatest gear and weaponry.
The video begins by highlighting personal hardships that come with military service. Long distance relationships with your family and having to say goodbye to your children that won’t understand why you must go.
Make your elders proud by signing up for the PLA today! The line “peace behind me, war in front of me” entices possible recruits with great purpose and responsibility, knowing they will be the ones at the tip of the spear, defending their homeland.

Artillery, tanks, submarines, and high intensity physical training! Plant the Chinese flag on the hard-conquered hilltop objective, it’s time to celebrate VICTORY!
