Particularly, two Second-class Feat of Arms Orders were presented to Unit 3 of the Drug and Crime Prevention and Control Department and its Head Senior Colonel Vu Xuan Dai, as well as a Third-class Feat of Arms Order to Unit 1 of the Drug and Crime Prevention and Control Department for their great achievements in the fight against drug-related crimes to ensure border area's political stability, social order, and safety.
