Vietnamese journalists, apart from their routine work on the mainland, volunteer to cross rough seas every year to reach islanders and soldiers so as to give in-depth coverage of their hard life there.
They bravely overcome difficulties and hardships as they travel to hotspots and promptly report on current events to keep the public up to date with the latest news.
Covering issues out at sea and on islands requires journalists to have great general knowledge and to possess a clear writing style.
They must also have good health in order to overcome various difficulties faced during their trip.
They are very happy and proud when their articles and feature pieces reach the public.
