In this case, I think I would. Unless I am grievously mistaken, those are members of the Zhōngguó Rénmín Jiěfàngjūn Hǎijūnlùzhànduì, the Marine Corps of the People’s Liberation Army Navy. In the People’s Republic of China, the Navy is a branch of the PLA, and the two brigades of Marines are a sub-branch of the Navy.

Since we may be fighting them some time in the future ….

I am not getting this.. Internationally or more specifically the allies of WW1 celebrate this as armistice Day.

The US I believe ‘dumbed’ it to Veterans Day for anybody ( mail despatcher included ) who did time in the US military.

We think of the US WW1&2 servicemen on this day also so I don’t get the hostility .

I am not sure about the PRC who did not exist till 49 but certainly Chinese including Mao fought Japan in Manchuria & weakened them / directed resources way from the Imperial Japan assault across SE Asia & the Pacific. They have many millions of deaths to show for it also including the first mass civilian casualties.

Whilst there is no reason to go mushy & invite the then enemies – there were many other nations involved .

Also consider the fate of the Chinese soldiers & civilians who helped the airmen of the Doolittle mission evade capture.

They were subjected to chemical warfare & atrocities as retribution & an estimated 250,o000 died from this alone.
