time is life. At a critical moment, Huang Jiguang stepped forward, put on a grenade, and led the two soldiers to climb towards the enemy's firepower. Facing the fierce fire of the enemy, he was fearless, endured the pain, and continued to move forward one step at a time. Due to the high firepower, Huang Jiguang was wounded again and fell down, but he still stubbornly climbed to the firepower, aimed at the muzzle of the enemy's flaming tongue, raised his chest, opened his arms, and pounced on it. Huang Jiguang used his young life to open up a path of victory for the troops.
