Addressing the handover ceremony, Vice Chairman of the General Department of Politics at the Vietnam People’s Army Lt. Gen. Trinh Van Quyet said the system will help people, especially the young generation, learn from the legendary General.

The system was developed by the Vietnam Military History Museum together with relevant agencies in nearly two months.

Applying new technology, it introduces outstanding historical locations with connections to the late General, more than 20 of his remembrances, life and career, along with file photos, documentaries and songs about General Vo Nguyen Giap, among others.

The provincial Department of Culture and Sports and the Quang Binh General Museum will be responsible for the operation of the system, in an effort to raise public awareness of the General and strengthen people’s belief in the “Doi moi” (Renewal) cause initiated by the Party, thereby fostering patriotism amongst people from all walks of life.

On the same day, a delegation of the Defence Ministry offered incense to the General at his grave in Yen island of Quang Trach district and visited a memorial house in his hometown of Le Thuy.

The delegation also presented aid packages to policy beneficiaries in Le Thuy district.

General Vo Nguyen Giap, whose real name is Vo Giap (alias Van), was born in Loc Thuy commune, Le Thuy district, the central province of Quang Binh on August 25, 1911. He passed away in Hanoi on October 4, 2013 at the age of 103.

He once served as a Politburo member, Secretary of the Central Military Commission, Standing Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of National Defence, Commander-in-Chief of the Vietnamese People’s Army and a National Assembly deputy from the first to seventh tenures.

The General, whose military career started with his appointment to lead the first Vietnamese revolutionary army unit with only 34 soldiers in 1944, led the Vietnamese people’s army from victory to victory during the resistance war against French colonialists and then American imperialists.
