Defense ministry inspects military recruitment in Ben Tre

PANO � A delegation of the Board for Military Recruitment of the Ministry of National Defense, led by Lieutenant General Tran Huu Phuc, Director of the Department of Defense School Management of the General Staff and deputy head of the Military School Recruitment Board, paid a working visit to the Southern province of Ben Tre on March 19.

At the working session, leaders of the Provincial Board for Military School Recruitment briefed the delegation on their task performance over the past years. Accordingly, the work has been implemented comprehensively and seriously, according to the defense ministry's regulations.

The local board also pointed out several difficulties in the work, particularly the fact that the number of high school students with good academic records enrolling in military schools remains modest.

Speaking at the event, General Phuc highly applauded the local board's effort and asked the local authorities to support the board to enroll good local high-school students in military schools in the time to come.
