  Photo taken on Mar. 2 shows a volunteer majoring in air service explaining aerospace knowledge at Changsha Aeronautical Vocational and Technical College.

  This year the college organized a team of student volunteers to promote Lei Feng Spirit by publicizing relevant knowledge on national defense. These student volunteers provide aviation-based service for over 20,000 visitors in their spare time through physical display, simulated flight, and model airplane air show.

  Background information:

  Lei Feng, a young Chinese soldier in the 1960s, is known for devoting almost all of his spare time and money to selflessly helping the needy. He died after being hit by a falling pole while helping a fellow soldier direct a truck on Aug. 15, 1962. A year later, Chairman Mao Zedong called on the entire nation to follow Lei's example. Since then, March 5 of every year is designated as 'Learn from Lei Feng Day'." (Source: xinhuanet)
