Work has completed on the upgrade of a memorial to Regiment 83 of Vietnamese volunteer soldiers in Laos in the northern mountainous province of Son La.

The memorial is located on 1,300 sq. m. in Ang village, Dong Sang commune, Moc Chau district where the Regiment was stationed 46 years ago.

The Regiment gained much recognition for supporting the Laos army forces during the war in Laos and has also been awarded the title of “People’s Armed Forces Hero” twice.

The memorial, which is classed as a historical, cultural relic by the Son La provincial People’s Committee, is a tourist attraction that will help the younger generations learn more about their nation’s history and its previous revolutionary traditions.-VNA
