An Giang (VNA) – The remains of 29 Vietnamese soldiers who laid down their lives during the US war were reburied in Khanh Binh commune, An Phu district, in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang, between March 22-30.

Colonel Pham Quang Trung, head of the search team K93 of the provincial Military High Command, said the remains were found at a site which was once a cemetery of the B3-Vat Lai revolutionary base, which existed from 1960-1969.

After the Southern Liberation Day (April 30, 1975), many of the soldiers’ remains in the cemetery were brought to nearby cemeteries or their families’ land, while others were not found as they were hidden in locals’ orchards and fields.

Trung said the remains of thousands of soldiers who fell in the province and in neighbouring Cambodia during the wars are still unaccounted for.

He said the search faces an array of difficulties as the landscape has changed and a lot of witnesses have passed away.-VNA
