Navy Region 4 ships carrying officers, soldiers, journalists as well as New Year gifts departed from Cam Ranh military port in the central province of Khanh Hoa on December 21 for Truong Sa (Spratly).

As scheduled, the ships will dock at islands and islets in the district, delivering supplies and gifts to people and soldiers stationed there on the occasion of the upcoming Lunar New Year Festival (Tet).

The gifts include essential goods and traditional food for Tet donated by organizations and businesses.

On December 20, 100 gifts were presented to personnel and policy beneficiaries at the Navy Region 4 High Command, as part of an annual program run by the Communist Party of Vietnam Online Newspaper and the Vietnam People’s Navy High Command, according to the Dangcongsan.
