PANO – The Command of Naval Region 1 of the Vietnam People’s Navy on April 18 honored 26 outstanding individuals with great contributions to the movement “Promoting traditions, contributing talent, deserving to be Uncle Ho’s soldiers - Naval servicemen.” The event was presided over by Rear Admiral Pham Van Vung, the Navy’s Political Chief.
Over the past three years, naval units under the region thoroughly grasped and strictly implemented the movements in conformity with their missions. Many initiatives and models have been effectively applied to raise the quality and efficiency of their task implementation, making contributions to well managing and firmly protecting national sovereignty over seas, islands, and continental shelf. Naval troops have been united and actively participated in mitigating and overcoming consequences caused by natural disasters and searching and rescuing the distressed at sea.
