Reunification Day or Ngày Thống Nhất marks Vietnam's historic victory and the end of the American War on April 30, 1975.
The historically momentous triumph was the direct result of the 1975 Spring Campaign. Saigon was then renamed Ho Chi Minh City, after late President Ho Chi Minh.
The victory opened a bright, independent future for the country and resulted in the reunification of the North and the South.
Images from the historic victory are now being displayed at Vietnam Women Museum.
