it's not just a job it's an adventure

Want to join the PLA Navy? To see the world, perhaps fight off a pirate or two around the Gulf of Aden? Be careful what you wish for you might end up defending Fairy Bay (神仙湾) in Xinjiang, the highest PLAN outpost, 5100 meters above sea level (here).

Sr Col 赵兴德 Zhao XingDe, commander of the Naval Boarder Defense Regiment.
