In Danang, on May 29, the Communist Youth Union gave badges to Lieutenant Le Trung Thanh and Lieutenant Dam Minh Khoa of Coast Guard area 2.

Lieutenant Le Trung Thanh said, "As an active duty soldier, with a responsibility to protect the country's sovereignty, I and other members of the crew are honoured to be able to contribute to keeping the peace at home." He also vowed to fulfill his duties and is determined to protect Vietnam's sovereignty rights. They will continue to try to persuade the Chinese to withdraw without doing any damage to international relations.

"I want to dedicate this badge and title to all soldiers who are still working hard. We won't fail the trust of our people or our government in this fight to protect Vietnam's integrity. Vietnam's youth will always be the leading force," he said.
