Leading characters of MND comic book pleased with result

The first comic-book version of a defense white paper was introduced by the Ministry of National Defense (MND) yesterday, with two of the leading characters appearing at a press conference to promote it.
Lieutenant Kuo Shih-yu, who in July emerged as the military's first female officer to become a frogwoman, is one of the leading characters in the comic book. She serves in an amphibious reconnaissance battalion as a support squadron platoon leader.
Kuo said she felt nervous but also amazed to be one of the project's leading characters and gave the comic book a score of 99 out of 100.
"A comic-book version of the defense white paper can be more accessible to people. I feel very honored to have taken on this mission," the short-haired Kuo said at the press conference.
Another leading character, Chen Shih-lin, who is an armored vehicle captain and participated the rescue work after typhoon Morakot, said he hopes his contribution can help attract more youngsters to sign up for military service.
