Gia Lai (VNA) – The Military Command in the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai on October 18 launched a campaign to search for and repatriate Vietnamese soldiers who died in wartime in Cambodia.

The work during the 2017-2018 dry season manifested the gratitude for the sacrifice of Vietnamese martyrs in Cambodia.

In that dry season, which will last until the end of April, the search team will carry out their work in Rattanakiri, Preah Vihear and Stung Treng provinces.

Established in 2001, Gia Lai’s search team has to date found and repatriated 1,374 sets of remains of Vietnamese soldiers.

During the 2016-2017 dry season, 29 sets of remains were repatriated. -VNA
