At the seminar

The seminar, focusing on the sacrifices and contributions of Hanoi-born soldiers to victories at the Quang Tri Ancient Citadel during 81 days and nights in 1972 in the national resistance war against American invaders, attracted nearly 200 delegates, including generals, scientists, holders of the title “Heroes of People's Armed Forces” and members of the association.

Speaking at the meeting, Lieutenant General Vu Van Kieu, Chairman of the association underlined that during the 81days indomitably fighting the enemy to protect the Quang Tri Ancient Citadel and achieving glorious feats of arms, nearly 4,200 soldiers, including 518 ones from Hanoi, laid down their lives.

About 10 reports delivered at the event underlined that in the national resistance war against American invaders, a large number of young people voluntarily went to war and engaged in the fight at the Quang Tri Ancient Citadel. This has demonstrated the patriotism of the Hanoi people and their responsibility for the cause of national salvation and construction.

The conference contributed to honoring traditional military-cultural values of the Hanoi soldiers. Via the workshop, the organizing panel will propose approaches to pay tribute to the soldiers of Hanoi origin, preserve and promote education of the noble traditional military-cultural values for the young generation in the current context.
