Yang Yixin was one of the first batch in the female army bomb unit who entered a minefield on the Lebanese-Israeli border.

Zhang Cunning, monitor of the female army bomb unit, said she witnessed the younger soldier minesweepers grow to be qualified through intense training and hardships.

Female minesweeper Zhang Huajie said three-months of intensive training made her lose so much weight that her mother hardly recognized her.

Female minesweeper Lu Yanhong said that it's a honorable duty to join the UN peacekeeping mission whether you are a man or woman.
