Ben Tre administrators took this occasion to provide free health examinations and medicine and present gifts to poor locals.  

The A210 liaison line, connecting Luong Hoa and Phong My commune,  was one of 18 key routes for transfering weapons, food, and soldiers to southern battle fields in the American war. Many soldiers and civilians died there to maintain the route until national unification was finally achieved on April 30, 1975.
