Veterans celebrate Regiment 568’s founding anniversary
PANO - The Liaison Committee of Veterans of Regiment 568 held a meeting to mark the 53rd founding anniversary of the regiment on March 19 in Luc Nam district, Bac Giang province, with the participation of more than 300 veterans of the regiment and leaders of units under Military Region 3.
With its key mission of training recruits to reinforce the Southern battlefield in the period of 1964 to 1975, the regiment trained nearly 20,000 troops. During the border war in the North of the country, the regiment directly fought and annihilated thousands of invading troops, and in recent years, the regiment has always fulfilled all assigned missions.
Over the past 53 years, generations of the regiment’s troops have continuously been upholding its tradition “Courageous – United – Forward– Determined to win”. Today the unit has contributed to building new-style rural areas and promoting cultural life at grassroots levels, as well as maintaining local political security, social order and safety.
