The visit is part of the “Veterans Initiative” programme aimed to provide information on Vietnamese soldiers killed or reported missing in action (MIA) during the war.

At a meeting with the provincial veterans’ association, US veterans handed over dossiers with information regarding 1,200 Vietnamese martyrs killed in the southern province of Dong Nai and Ho Chi Minh City to support efforts to search for their remains.

Ms. Four said the VVA, a non-governmental organisation specialising in supporting issues related to US veterans of the war in Vietnam, has pledged more efforts in collecting information about Vietnamese soldiers who died during the war to help retrieve the martyrs’ remains so that they can rest in peace in their homeland.
