Director of Political Warfare Lt. General Chun-Hsiung Wang from the Air Force personally visited the homes of the winning candidates Meng-Yu Liu and Hsiu-hui Chang. Accompanied by the relevant department head and other personnel, he recognized the two women as the 2019 Model Mothers of the Armed Forces and conveyed his sincere felicitations.
Mrs. Liu and her husband had four children. She was a full-time homemaker who looked after their elders and contributed to charity. Despite their early years of hardship, she encouraged her children to volunteer for military service and take on the heavy responsibility of defending the nation and national air space. Mrs. Chang came from a poor family but still set an example for her children through active volunteering. She taught her children to join the military and make a contribution to society. Their display of motherhood is to be commended.
Director Wang said that mothers are every person’s pillar of strength while growing up. The examples they set in the virtues of “loyalty and fidelity” led to outstanding careers in the military for their children. It also spurred their children’s commitment to their unit and mission as well as readiness to make sacrifices for the nation. The presentation of the award is intended as a show of utmost respect to mothers for their labor of love.
