Soldier / Private

China shì bīng
ribbon top
<mark>Soldier</mark> / Private

This means "Soldier", but more specifically, a rank-and-file soldier (a private or troop - you could say a ground-pounder). Our other entry for "solider / serviceman" is probably better for a wall scroll (since someday, you will be promoted).

Note: In Japanese, they use these characters in opposite order to create the same meaning word. In that order, it's pronounced "heishi" in Japanese. Just let us know if you want it in Japanese Kanji order when you place your order.

Soldier / Serviceman

China jūn rén
Japan gun jin
ribbon top
<mark>Soldier</mark> / Serviceman

This means "Soldier" or literally "Military Person". This can also be translated as, "military personnel", "soldier", or "serviceman" (it is unisex, so male or female is not indicated).

See Also...  Military

American Soldier / American Serviceman

China méi guó jūn rén
ribbon top
American <mark>Soldier</mark> / American Serviceman

This means "American Soldier" or literally "American Military Person". This can also be translated as, "American military personnel", or "American serviceman". Gender is not specified in this title, so it's appropriate for male or female soldiers.

Marine / Soldier of the Sea

Japanese / Korean
Japan kai hei
ribbon top
Marine / <mark>Soldier</mark> of the Sea

This way to express "Marine" as in an individual "Soldier of the Sea" in Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja characters (not to be confused with Korean Hangul).

Breaking down each character, this means:
"ocean/sea soldier/army/warrior".

Please note that this Japanese/Korean version kind of means "sailor" or "navy" in Chinese.

See Also...  Military

Warrior of God / Soldier of God

Japan kami no heishi
ribbon top
Warrior of God / <mark>Soldier</mark> of God

This means, "Warrior of God" or "Soldier of God" in Japanese.

Soldier of the Gods

China shén bīng
Japan shin pei
ribbon top
<mark>Soldier</mark> of the Gods

This is a Japanese, Chinese, and Korean title that means "soldier dispatched by a god", or "soldier under the protection of the gods".

This is used more in Japanese (especially in animation) than the other languages.

Soldier of Fortune

China gù yōng bīng
ribbon top
<mark>Soldier</mark> of Fortune

This is "soldier of fortune" in Chinese. It can also be read as, "mercenary" or "hired gun".

Soldier of Fortune

Japan fuu un ji
ribbon top
<mark>Soldier</mark> of Fortune

This is "soldier of fortune" in Japanese. It can also be read as, "lucky adventurer" or "adventurer who takes advantage of troubled times".

Military Veteran / Retired Soldier

China tuì wǔ jūn rén
ribbon top
Military Veteran / Retired <mark>Soldier</mark>

This is the Chinese title for a military veteran.

The first two characters mean, "retired from the ranks", or discharged.

The last two characters mean, serviceman, soldier, or military personnel.

Warrior Monk / Soldier Priest

China sēng bīng
Japan sou hei
ribbon top
Warrior Monk / <mark>Soldier</mark> Priest

This is a strange title for a wall scroll, but it may suit you if you see yourself as a warrior monk. This title is not commonly used but will be understood in both Chinese and Japanese. It can also be read as "armed monks".

The scroll that I am holding in this picture is a "medium size"
4-character wall scroll.
As you can see, it is a great size to hang on your wall.
(We also offer custom wall scrolls in larger sizes)

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
