PM honors war heroes of Tay Tien Regiment 52

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on Sunday offered flowers and incense at the memorial site for Tay Tien Regiment 52 in Son La province, part of activities marking the 70th anniversary of the Day of Invalids and War Martyrs on July 27.

During the war against the French (1945-1954), Moc Chau district in Son La was a gathering place of the Tay Tien Regiment, from which the soldiers spread out to fight across the northwest and upper Lao fronts, contributing to the victory over the French.

The Tay Tien historical site, inaugurated last year, has become a centre for historical education and part of a master plan for Moc Chau tourism development.

At the ceremony, PM Phuc said the soldiers of the Tay Tien Regiment will be remembered forever in the annals of the People's Army of Vietnam, adding that their courage was a source of encouragement and an example for future generations.
