VTV.vn - On the 58th anniversary of Trường Son soldiers's traditional day, the Ministry of Defence and army corps No 12 held a ceremony to award the posthumous title of Hero of the People's Armed Forces to Major General Võ Bẩm and Colonel Lê Xy.

They were the first soldiers to be assigned by late President Hồ Chí Minh to construct the Trường Sơn Trail 58 years ago. Thanks to the trail, tens of thousands of tonnes of ammunition and medication were transported to the battlefield in the south, which contributed to the country's reunification. Nowadays, Corps No 12  Trường Sơn Construction Corporation continues to build transport constructions to contribute to national economic development.
