习近平主席在讲话中高度赞扬了革命战士不怕苦、不怕牺牲的精神，还专门介绍了革命战士们的“三个不相信”的英雄宣言（heroic declaration of "three don't believes"）：
Revolutionary soldiers don't believe in missions that couldn't be completed, they don't believe in difficulty that couldn't be overcome, and they also don't believe in enemies that couldn't be conquered.
We will never allow anyone, any organization or any political party to split any part of Chinese territory out of the country at any time, in any form. No one should expect us to swallow the pains of compromising our national sovereignty, security and development interest.
On August 1, 1927, a gunshot in Nanchang marked our resistance against the Kuomintang reactionaries. This is a great event in the history of the CPC, of China's revolution, as well as of development of the Chinese nation.
For 90 years, the people's army has gone through wars and difficult times, making great sacrifices in exchange for more and more glorious victories, helping the CPC and people achieve great historical merit.
The people's army used their lives to set a solid foundation for the new China where people became their own masters. The people's army also reversed the Chinese nation’s backwardness in the modern history, which made it vulnerable to foreign invasions.
Their victory was also a strong support to the new people’s regime, China’s status as a big country and Chinese nation’s dignity.
Their dedication serves as a strong support to the CPC leadership and our socialist system, to the defense of the national sovereignty, security and interests, to our national development in an important period of strategic opportunities, as well as to regional and world peace.
The people's army has grown from a single-service force into a force with multiple branches, and has transformed from a "millet plus rifles" force to one that has basically completed mechanization and is moving rapidly toward a strong informationized armed force.
Their outstanding merits will always be remembered by the history.
Their sacrifices and dedications will also be remembered by the Chinese people.
The People’s Liberation Army has been moving forward under the banner of the Communist Party of China during a series of practices over the past nine decades. The army has formed its own principles of army building and governance, developed strategies and tactics for people’s war, and cultivated specific fine tradition and exemplary conduct. The people’s army should forever bear those cherished heritages in mind as they have helped them win a succession of victories.
The succession of victories of the people’s army has demonstrated the great power of the Party’s leadership.
From our history we can see that the Party’s absolute leadership over the people’s army guarantees the army’s nature and responsibility of root. This is an irrefutable truth which came from the Party’s arduous struggles.
The succession of victories of the people’s army has also demonstrated the great power of aspiration and faith.
From our history, we can see that revolutionary aspiration is the most noble one above all. The key factor helping the people’s army gather ground, overcome all those difficulties, and defeat all those fights is its mind armed with Marxism theories, its noble aspiration and faith as well as determination, and dedication to pursue them.
The succession of victories of the people’s army has also demonstrated the great power of reform and innovation.
From the history, we can see that reform and innovation featuring advancement with the times is the bright road for the development of people’s army. Reform and innovation contribute to the power and victories of the people’s army.
The succession of victories the people's army has won has also demonstrated the great power of fighting spirit. The army's courageous and upright characteristics have been vividly portrayed by their courage to fight for victory or having no fear for suffering and death.
From the history, we can see that war is not only a contest in terms of material, but also one concerning spirit. Victory can never be guaranteed without a strong will, and the spirit of fearing no sacrifice, no matter how superior the weapons and military equipment are.
The succession of victories the people's army has gained has also demonstrated the great power of revolutionary discipline.
From the history, we can see that the army will win all battle in revolution as long as the discipline is strengthened. The power of an army should not be judged by only its scale, weapons and equipment, but also its discipline. An army without discipline is nothing but a disorderly mob.
The succession of victories the people's army has won shows the great strengthen of the army and people.
History tells us that our troops will conquer all as long as they are supported by the people.
The brilliance of the people's army was built by blood, which will always be on our mind. The historical experience of the PLA is gained through hardships and should be carried forward by all of us. Loyalty pushed the army forward before and will always keep us moving forward.
Through five years hard work and efforts, the PLA realized the restructuring of the political ecosystem, organization, strength and style. The army starts all over again, with brand new appearance and move steadfastly toward a stronger army.
Standing on the new historical point, we feel stronger the importance of the heroic army to lead people out of pain and liberate people. We should build out a world-class army to help rejuvenate the Chinese nation and make people's lives better. We should remember where we started in the first place, keep moving forward, stick to strong armed force with Chinese characteristics, and push the army career to higher levels.
In order to build a strong armed force, we must stick to the principle that the Party maintains absolute leadership over the army and make sure the armed forces always follow the Party.
In order to realize strong armed force, we must stick to and develop the Party's military guide theory, improving the military theory of Marxism and the development of modern military practices in China.
In order to advance the course of strong armed force, we must focus on combat readiness, and build up a strong military force that can fight and win in battles and wars.
To strengthen the army, we must uphold the right political wills, deepen military reforms, revive the army with technology, govern the army according to law, and raise the level of national security, and modernize the army in all aspects.
To build a strong army, we must carry out integrated military and civilian development and build a national integrated military and civilian strategic system and capability.
To build a strong army we must always be committed to the fundamental principle of serving the people wholeheartedly. We must stand side by side with the people so as to be trusted, supported and loved by them.
