A military parade will be the most important part of the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the founding of New China. Soldiers from the People's Liberation Army are training hard for their participation. With less than a month to go, their training has moved into high gear.

Members in the square formation of special troops are undergoing the marching exercise.

The speed of the parade is very strict. The exact pace of the formation is one hundred and sixteen steps per minute. Each step is 75 centimeters.

Fang Yuhu, a member of Special Troop Formation, said, "As the first line of the formation, every step I make decides the order of the whole formation. The size and speed of my steps are very accurate after hours of preparation."

Female soldiers in the formation, make no less of an effort in their training.

Qin Yuyan is from Beichuan County of Sichuan Province. She lost 7 family members during last year's massive earthquake. But Qin continued training and was honored as the best example of her formation.

Qin Yuyan, a member of female soldier formation, said, "As long as you hold a positive attitude and faith, no matter how hard it is, I believe each of my steps will be excellent."

The parade includes navy, land and air forces. In addition reservists and students from military academies are also included.

The Commander of the formations says training is going well. The parade will show the might of the Chinese armies as it performs in front of the nation and the Chinese people.
