Meanwhile, localities and local agencies presented gifts and savings books to enlistees and called upon businesses and socio-political organizations to provide support to families of enlistees, especially the needy ones.

Presenting gifts to enlistees

With the timely and effective encouragement of the military service councils in particular and the whole community in general, Thanh Hoa province is expected to accomplish the 2019 enlistment drive.

The Military Personnel Department of the provincial Military Command evaluated that the quality of this year’s enlistment drive is high as most of the enlistees have good health and high level of education.

Especially, 5.4% of the enlisted youths in the province hold university, college, and vocational training certificates. Noticeably, many ethnic minority youths decided to join the military while Party members wrote a petition to voluntarily be a soldier.
