Book day kicked off in Naval Region 2
PANO - Units of Naval Region 2 (NR 2) of the Vietnam People's Navy stationed in the Southern provinces of Dong Nai, Vung Tau, Binh Thuan and Ho Chi Minh City held the Vietnam Book Day for their troops on April 21.
As many as 1,000 troops and employees joined the event to learn more about book categories and enjoy reading various kinds of books.
This year’s event witnessed the release of "Ho Chi Minh, morality is the root of the revolution" compiled by writer Bui Dinh Phong and published by the Dan Tri Publishing House in 2016 enclosed with the videos.
Captain Doan Thi Thanh Ha of Brigade 171 shared that the event was organized in her unit to promote reading habit and popularize Uncle Ho's thought and revolutionary morality to young soldiers. Around 200 troops went to the unit's library and hall of fame to read books.
Similar events were held on DK1 platforms in Vietnam's Southern continental shelf the same day.
