The outpost of the Xinjiang Military Command's Kongkashan Border Defense Company is located on Shengli Mountain, more than 5,000 meters above sea level. More than 60 years ago, the soldiers who guarded the border here guarded it diligently. Today, every soldier who comes here will salute the big mountain peak on the border line in front of the stone stele of Shengli Mountain.
Peng Xiaolong, a soldier of the border company, has been on duty for 16 consecutive months. He believes that his post is the forefront of the battle. He is the father of two daughters, the eldest daughter is four and a half years old, and the youngest daughter is just three. When resting in the nest of the sentry post, touching the smiling faces of the children in the photos is the greatest joy and happiness in his life.
He wrote three goodbye notes, one for his parents, one for his wife, and one for his two daughters, in case anything happens.
