Taipei, A Kinmen County calender for 2019 is full of photos of Dadan Island (???), a Taiwan-controlled island close to the southern coast of China, that the photographer who took the pictures sees as a message we should cherish the freedom and peace we enjoy today.
Sixty-three year-old Tsai Jung-feng (???) served as a soldier on Dadan (meaning "boldness" in English) during the military stand-off between Taiwan and China in the 1970s. He returned to the former battle front in June as a volunteer photographer, helping the local government document the history of the island.
Tsai was one of many veterans who, having been posted to Dadan Island as a young man, answered a call by Kinmen County Government for recruits to help lay the groundwork for the island to be finally opened to tourists in March next year.
