Thousands of candles were lit up in over 2,000 cemeteries throughout the country on July 26th to express deep gratitude to martyrs who devoted their lives for the national liberation and salvation.

On the hill 82 of Tan Bien Cemetery, in the southeastern province of Tay Ninh, 1,500 youths offered candles and incense for 15,000 martyrs, some of whom have not yet been identified.  

93 martyrs who sacrificed their lives fighting for the country and fulfilling their international obligation in Cambodia have been recently brought to Tan Bien Cemetery after a long time lying in a forest in Cambodia.

During the war against the American aggressors, Tan Bien District in Tay Ninh Province witnessed numerous fierce battles and incredible bravery of Vietnamese soldiers.

While offering candles for the martyrs, Nguyen Minh Thanh, a Youth Union member touchingly said, “Each candle lit up reminds us of the pain of the war and the noble sacrifice of our elders. We promise to try our best to be deserved the devotion of the elders to the nation”.

Meanwhile, in Hanoi Martyrs’ Cemetery, in Tu Liem District, nearly 1,000 local citizens and youth lit candles for 1,800 martyrs, including reputable Heroine, Dang Thuy Tram, and Hero Nguyen Van Thac.

Along with candles, songs praising the sacrifice were also sung as an expression of thanks to Vietnamese heroic martyrs.

Moreover, thousands of presents were presented to Heroic Vietnamese Mothers, wounded and sick soldiers, families of martyrs and other social beneficiaries across the country on the 63rd commemoration of the War Invalids and Martyrs’ Day, July 27th.
