China's veteran soldier service office is drafting new laws to make sure the rights and interests of the country's military veterans are protected, according to China's State Council Information Office.
Many Chinese veterans currently find themselves living in poor conditions, unable to secure jobs, pensions or medical care.

Sun Shaocheng, head of the veteran soldier's office, says they intend to find jobs for at least 120,000 veterans by the end of this year.
In addition, authorities say they are also able to apply for living allowances while continuing to receive subsidies.
