The spirit of Lei Feng

Lei Feng (1940-1962), a PLA soldier, was a model of wholehearted service to the people. During his short life, he helped a great many people. Since the 1960s, Lei has remained an icon in China, and is remembered for his hard work and devotion to duty. He had inspired generations of Chinese.

In March 2014, Xi Jinping emphasized that the spirit of Lei Feng exemplifies the core values of socialism, and will live on forever.
