Among them, 109 were found in Vietnam while the remainders were identified as Vietnamese volunteer troops and experts who sacrificed their lives while doing international service in Laos.

During the search and collection of sets of remains of fallen troops in Laos, search and collection teams under Military Region 4 strictly observed COVID-19 prevention and control regulations.

They have also organized memorial and burial services for the fallen troops in a solemn and compassionate manner.

Members of the search and collection teams returning from Laos were quarantined right upon arrival in line with the Health Ministry’s regulations.
