Quang Tri martyrs cemetery gets facelift

The first phase of upgrading the Road 9 National Martyrs Cemetery was inaugurated at a ceremony in the central province of Quang Tri, on July 22.

The event marks 65 years of War Invalids and Martyrs’ Day (July 27). 

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Van Ninh said the Vietnamese Party, State, and People are always grateful to the heroes, fallen soldiers and war invalids who sacrificed themselves for national liberation. 

The upgrade of the cemetery is a practical action to express the nation’s gratitude, he said. 

The Road 9 National Martyrs Cemetery is the resting place of over 10,000 soldiers, most of whom were killed during fierce battles along Road 9 and in Laos.
