Back in April, a Chinese veteran living in Beijing told The Epoch Times that he received a phone call from the Ministry of Armed Forces, asking him to join the army again. The veteran wished to remain anonymous.

“The Ministry of Armed Forces checked on my current situation and asked me to be prepared to return to the army, in response to the call from Chairman Xi. I am almost 50. How can I have the energy to fight in battles? My elder brother also received a phone call from them. So I guess all veterans like us received such phone calls.”
