Air Force Commander-in-Chief General 2nd Class Hou-Chi Hsiung traveled to the Kaohsiung region on April 11 accompanied by Political Warfare Director Lieutenant General Wang and others to supervise the combat readiness and epidemic prevention measures of local units and enforce the policy of direct supervision. He praised the officers and men for all the hard work they put into combat training, combat readiness missions, as well as surveillance and reconnaissance.
CinC Hsiung started by attending a briefing on the planning of off-site operations, implementation of epidemic prevention preparations, and inventory of medical supplies. He emphasized that the top priorities right now are “epidemic prevention, combat readiness, and military discipline.” Commanding officers of all ranks must focus on building quality teams through enforcing proper military discipline, and cultivating a harmonious work atmosphere.
CinC Hsiung also re-affirmed the policy of “Treat epidemic prevention as seriously as combat.” Commanding officers should immediately implement the “quarantine, diagnosis and disinfect” procedure if any suspicious symptoms are detected to prevent clustered infections and maintain their unit’s combat readiness.
In addition to checking on the welfare of the officers and men, CinC Hsiung also reminded everyone to avoid crowded places and engage in self-improvement while on leave to become professional soldiers that citizens look up to.
