Troops of Da Nang city's Military Command collecting remains of fallen soldiers

The remains of soldiers who laid down their lives during the anti-American war for national salvation were found in Hoa Khuong commune of Da Nang’s Hoa Vang district. None of the remains have been identified.

After the collection, the city’s Steering Committee 515 held memorial and burial services for the fallen soldiers at the War Martyrs’ Cemetery of Hoa Khuong commune. 

On the same day, the Kon Tum provincial Party Committee, People’s Committee, Fatherland Front Committee, and armed forces held a memorial service for three sets of remains of martyrs.

Of them the two remains of martyrs, namely Nguyen Van Uoc from Ninh Binh province and Khong Minh Tuan from Vinh Phuc province, were found in Hoa Binh commune thanks to information provided by war veteran Nguyen Xuan Vong in Tan Yen town of Quyen Quang province’s Ham Yen district. Vong joined the army in 1971 and was in the same unit of the fallen. The two soldiers fell in a battle on the Chu Pao Mountain in hamlet 2 of Hoa Binh commune in 1972 and were buried by Vong.

According to the war veteran, his unit lost 13 soldiers in the battle.  The Kon Tum provincial Military Command will continue to search for the remaining soldiers.

The other remains were found by Nguyen Duc Viet in hamlet 2 of Dak Cam commune, Kon Tum city while building his courtyard.
