The remains of seventeen fallen Vietnamese soldiers have been recovered from caves in the district of Pack U, Luang Prabang province in Laos during the first three months of the year.

According to Senior Lieutenant colonel Nguyen The Giang from the Search and Collection of Martyrs’ Remains Team under the Military Zone 2, local people said that Vietnamese soldiers were fighting in the caves during the past war.

He said that once former volunteers and military experts involved in the past war in Laos and Luang Prabang province learn of the news through the Voice of Vietnam, they will then be able to provide information about their military units and identify the fallen soldiers.

During the first days of 2018, the Search and Collection of Martyrs’ Remains Team coordinated with agencies in Oudomxay province to hold a memorial service and repatriate the remains of nine martyrs to Dien Bien province.
