The “eyes” of Truong Sa

When visiting the Truong Sa (Spratly) Archipelago, one of the most striking sights is the naval soldiers on duty at the "frontline of wind and waves." Poetically referred to as the "eyes" of Truong Sa, they stand guard day and night, safeguarding sovereignty and upholding peace in the cherished islands and seas.
