A few days ago, the Pingyuan Gunshot Exhibition Hall located in Hengxiang Technology Co., Ltd. welcomed two special guests: the children of Liu Yuan'an, a veteran of the War of Liberation, found Hengxiang Technology (formerly Hengshui County Wagon Repair Society), whose father worked for half a century before his death, in the Pingyuan Gunshot Exhibition Hall created by the company, to deeply understand the glorious years of his father's generation, and left precious historical materials in the museum.
"I only knew my father had worked here before, but little was known about the specific situation. Through the visit, I not only learned about my father's experience in Hengxiang, but also saw the tremendous changes in this enterprise. As the descendants of the old Hengxiang people, we are sincerely proud." Liu Yuan'an's daughter Liu Yuqing and son Liu Shusen, on behalf of the four brothers and sisters, visited the Plains Gunshot Exhibition Hall and stopped for a long time before the booth introducing his father's deeds.
In 1948, at the age of 15, Liu Yuan'an joined the army in his hometown of Yidu County, Linyi, Shandong Province. Later, he became a tank driver of the armored battalion of the field army and went south with the army. He served as the deputy platoon leader of 332 tank regiment of 117 divisions of the 39th Army of the Chinese People's Liberation Army and the head of the technical station. He made three third class achievements.
From 1965 to 1969, Liu Yuan'an, who was transferred to work, served as the secretary of the Party branch and director of the social committee of Hengshui County Carriage Repair Society (now Hengxiang Science and Technology). During his tenure, he worked hard to maintain the stability of the enterprise, added tire refurbishment and rubber products projects, and carried out rubber processing abroad, making the enterprise develop rapidly and become a local backbone enterprise. After Liu Yuan'an left the carriage repair and fitting society in 1969, he successively worked in Hengshui Well Machinery Repair Factory, Highway Supervision Station, Highway Levy Station and other enterprises and institutions. He left in 1988 and died in 2002. As the elder of Hengxiang Technology, his resume and deeds are recorded and displayed in the company's annals, exhibition halls and exhibition halls.
Not long ago, some media broadcast the introduction of the company's Plains Gunshot Exhibition Hall. Among them, Liu Yuan'an's photos flashed by, and his son Liu Shusen keenly captured the pictures, which made him very excited. He called his sister Liu Yuqing in Shijiazhuang overnight, and Liu Yuqing called Du Lianjun, a classmate who had worked at Hengxiang Technology, to learn about the situation. Before long, a special "looking for relatives" began.
Over the past half century, both sisters and brothers are over sixty years old. They once again feel the great feat of their parents' sacrifice of life and death. Their excitement is expressed in words. At the successful conclusion of the family search trip, the sister and brother tearfully handed over to the exhibition hall such precious objects as the meritorious service certificate, the graduation certificate of the tank driving school, the retirement certificate, and the commemorative photos of each stage that recorded their father's study and work in that year.
"Please take care of these things. We are a red family rooted in the land of Yimeng and Hengshui. Now we have found our father's memorial site, and we are very pleased. We should give full play to our waste heat, do a good job of red propaganda, and let the red gene pass on from generation to generation." Before leaving, sister and brother took group photos at many places in the exhibition hall to freeze the precious memories of the next scene.
It is understood that Hengxiang Science and Technology Plain Gun Sound Exhibition Hall is a patriotism education base and social science popularization demonstration base in Hengshui City, with precious historical materials of many anti Japanese veterans and many other red patriots. Leaders at all levels, experts in literature and history, employees of enterprises and public institutions, etc. visited the site, which has a growing influence on social welfare.
