The ordinary civilian people had done great work for the anti-Japanese war and the liberation of the whole China!
Many of the strongest men from our village were sent to push handbarrows to transport the military necessaries to the frontier where it was one thousand miles away from home!
Dear reader friends：Could you imagine how difficult the task had been by such a poor tool with heavy load on the bumpy path of the long ‘march’?---------even the vehicle axle of the handbarrow was also wood without any modern metal bearing! ---------This morning an old farmer told me the axle was made of special wood （檀木:Red Sandalwood ）that could last a long time of friction from heavy load!------certainly it was always noisy with the movement of the ‘cart’.
They marched day and night!---------
In the daytime father and other fellowmen chose the narrow path with crops growing on both sides so that they could avoid air strike!;
In night, they would feel free about the danger from the sky but most of them felt tired and sleepy!---------You had to have a ‘nap’ while you were still walking with the two eyes shut!
All of them were troubled with painful blisters due to long journey!
They were soldiers without uniform who stretcher the wounded down from the frontier to the ‘hospitals’or buried the dead ones!
These farmers had served the army for half or one year. They are folk heroes!
