Major General Pham Van Mien, Editor-in-Chief of the Public Security Newspaper said the activities aimed to honor the national tradition of “when drinking water, remember its source” and that the newspaper always remembers the great contribution to the country of the heroic martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the national independence.

The Vietnam Invalids and Martyrs Day is a special chance for the entire country to commemorate millions of martyrs and war invalids who sacrificed their lives and health during the wars.
In 1947, just two years after President Ho Chi Minh delivered the declaration of independence, the first decree on preferential policies for war invalids and fallen soldiers was issued.
The same year, July 27 was designated as the national war invalids day, which was later renamed the War Invalids and Martyrs Day, to call on the entire community to support war invalids and martyrs’ families in acknowledgement of their contributions to the nation.
