Speaking at the ceremony, PM Phuc expressed his gratitude towards national heroes for their enormous sacrifices for national defence.
The memorial site is considered an important place to educate younger generations about the country’s revolutionary tradition, he noted.
Built in 2012, Nui Que – Anh Linh Dai Martyr Memorial Temple commemorates 40 Vietnamese soldiers of Military Region 5’s Special-task Battalion 409, who sacrificed their lives during the attack on a US military base on May 11, 1969.
The temple, together with the Moc Bai victory relic site, Hon Ham historical relic site and Huong Que communal house, has shaped up a complex of historical and revolutionary relic sites in Que Phu commune.
The upgradation of the memorial site began in June, 2019 with a total investment of VND9 billion (US$390,000). The site included the construction of a new relief image, lighting system and many other supporting facilities.
