Vietnam War Invalids and Martyrs Day observed nationwide
A special musical program to commemorate the 71st Vietnam War Invalids and Martyrs Day took place Wednesday night in Hanoi with the attendance of National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan.
The program, a tribute to revolutionary contributors, urged the community to give financial assistance to disadvantaged veterans, former youth volunteers, and martyrs' families. It also educated young people about tradition, patriotism, national pride, and responsibility.
On Tuesday, Truong Thi Mai, Head of the Party Central Committee's Commission for Mass Mobilization, presented gifts to revolutionary contributors at a nursing center in Thua Thien-Hue. Ms. Mai said taking care of war invalids, martyrs, and revolutionary contributors is a noble task and responsibility of the government and society. She wished them good health and said she hopes they will continue their contributions to local development.
Khanh Hoa province's authorities gave gifts to families of policy beneficiaries, visited revolutionary contributors at local sanatoriums, and offered incense at Hon Dung martyrs' cemetery.
