An exhibition on seas, island and naval officers is being held in the northern city of Hai Phong from October 13-19, as part of activities marking the 60th anniversary of Ho Chi Minh Trail at Sea.
Co-organised by the municipal Department of Culture and Sports and the Navy High Command’s Department of Navy Politics, the event showcases 180 photos, 35 documents and objects, two maps of Ho Chi Minh Trail at Sea and Vietnam’s waters, and 10 statistical sheets on achievements made by the Vietnam People’s Navy.
Director of the municipal Department of Culture and Sports Tran Thi Hoang Mai said the exhibition offers an insight into the heroic tradition and achievements by the Vietnam People’s Navy in the fight for national liberation to which the strategic military transport route Ho Chi Minh Trail at Sea made important contributions.
The Ho Chi Minh Trail at Sea was set up on October 23, 1961 to help with the transportation of weapons from the North to aid the southern liberation army.
During the resistance war against the US imperialists, the Ho Chi Minh Trail at Sea was considered a “true legend” and a miracle of the Vietnamese nation, contributing to the 1975 spring victory.
