(Reporter Chou Sheng-wei of Military News Agency, Yilan, 9th)The 153rd Infantry Brigade of the 6th Army officially launched the "New 14-day Recall Training" today. After completing quick testing screening for epidemic prevention and equipment collection, the formation ceremony was held. From the operations, we observed the patriotism and law-abiding spirit of recruits as they demonstrated “report as ordered” and prepared for two weeks of training.

 As recruits reported to Chong Hwa Junior High School of Yilan County in the morning, they had their temperatures taken, disinfection and quick screening was carried out for epidemic prevention, and they also went through data verification, safety inspection of personal belongings, expertise appraisal, equipment withdrawal and other operations under the guidance of recall cadres. Throughout, sniffer dogs from the MP squad were also dispatched to assist in checking recruits’ luggage to implement drug control and uphold the uprightness of troops.

 Later, recruits rode on medium-sized tactical vehicles to each camp. Then, company commanders announced formation order in the afternoon, and recruits showed high morale and spirit as they prepared for 14 days of new recall training.

 The new 14-day recall training has adopted a trial pattern based on locality, that is, each combat zone will be deemed a unit for implementation and verification in the first to third quarter of the year. Based on the instruction of “everywhere is a battlefield, training all the while” by the Ministry of National Defense (MND), the entire process adopted such measures as "on-the-spot mobilization, on-site formation, on-site training, and on-site safeguarding," which are combined with operational needs and tactical positions to carry out training tasks. As such, it is hoped that such guidance and instructions can be used as references for follow-up policy study and implementation of troop training.
