PANO – The Dong Nai provincial Military Command on February 4th began the construction of a stele in commemoration of former Eastern Region Military Zone in Hieu Liem commune, Vinh Cuu district, Dong Nai.

They will also upgrade a well which witnessed the zone’s establishment.

The Eastern Region Military Zone operated between 1961 and 1967, basing on the Eastern Sub-region Unit in the national resistance war against French colonialists.

The project of constructing 2.4m stone stele construction and upgrading 3m deep well costs nearly VND 900 million from Military Zone 7’s budget and will be completed in two-month time.

It would help promote the national tradition “When you eat a fruit, think of the man who planted the tree”, remind younger generations of the national patriotic tradition, and at the same time it would serve as a place for holding get-togethers of historical witnesses and a tourist spot.
