She moved on to bigger and better thing in life. Why not ? She is still young. she can make contribution to the nation other than becoming a sailor maybe civil service. Is there any preferential treatment for ex military men or woman in China? But she can inspire a whole generation of young ladies in China's west to think out of the box. I marvel at China progress in providing opportunities to the young, 20 years ago she will be stuck in humdrum domestic life. Now she has seen the world

Well that is not so bad a goal. You see a lot of these western Chinese never see sea in their life other than at TV or movie. Living thousand miles from coast surrounded by dessert many Uyghur, Kazakh, Kirghiz now join the navy since most of them are now well verse in Mandarin

It all depends on how you define the world. To a person living more than 4000km from the coast, visiting various cities en route to her naval base, then traveling up and down the western pacific with Liaoning, her world is very big compared with most people on the planet. One don't need to visit every corner of the earth to see the world, just go far enough and see enough different things.

When will Liaoning be retired? Can it be donated to Russia to help enhance it's blue water capabilities?
