2014 is the year that Wang Jianbo will never forget. He did not take a sensible job offer like most other people would do; instead, he stayed in the army, trained to be a PLA “hunter”, won a Third-Level Merit, and became the monitor of the top class.

When Wang Jianbo was a new recruit , the movie Charging Out Amazon triggered his dream of being a "hunter". In order to realize his dream, Wang kept challenging himself —extreme physical training or field survival; he never let any opportunity pass. In 2012, he successfully passed the selection process and joined the training team to become a PLA "hunter".

Late one night in 2014, Wang was attacked in his sleep and realized the whole class was being kidnapped. Little could he have expected the torture that awaited him. He recalls being tied upside down and submerged in water when he refused to answer any of the kidnappers' questions. He almost suffocated once. But for all that, he never said a word to the enemy. At last, the "bad guys" gave in. It turned out to be a test of physcial strength and psychological endurance for the "hunters".

After a series of harsh and testing training sessions, Wang Jianbo won himself the title of "air force excellent hunter", and became the class monitor.
