Defense Minister Yan Defa only said that "the national army strictly prohibits self-purchasing of materials", and also said that if any materials and tools are lost, soldiers only need to "apply through normal channels". .

Lieutenant Huang did indeed have fax number list at least 31 items in short supply. Moreover, the 269th Brigade is not a rear unit, but an important actual combat unit, stationed on the outskirts of Taoyuan to defend the key point leading to the Taipei City Basin. If the Chinese People's Liberation Army lands on the coast of northern Taiwan, the 269th Brigade is bound to provoke a major combat mission to defend the capital. If the logistical situation of the 269th Brigade is so miserable, let alone other units of the Taiwan Army?

Huang Junmin , a retired army lieutenant colonel and now a military critic, directly criticized this: "These figures are meaningless, all are fake.
