Accordingly, over the past time, the Standing Committee of the Ha Tinh Provincial Party Committee coordinated with the Steering Committee for celebrating the 50th anniversary of Dong Loc Victory to organize various activities, such as launching a quiz attracting more than 407,000 Youth Union members and students in the province, building and repairing gratitude houses for the families of former youth volunteers and national contributors in the province.

From now until July 24, many meaningful activities will be held during the event, including a scientific seminar on July 19, a requiem for martyrs, an inauguration ceremony of the Dong Loc Junction Temple, a special ceremony to pay tribute to ten female youth volunteers who sacrificed their lives at a very young age for the sake of national independence at Dong Loc Junction, and an art performance.

The steering committee also asked press agencies to promote information dissemination on the role and significance of the Dong Loc Victory, highlighting the heroic tradition, resilient and indomitable spirit of the province's authorities and local people in the resistance war against American invaders, as well as mobilize resources from the society to continue upgrading some assorted projects at the Dong Loc Junction Historical Site and promoting gratitude activities in the province.
